About

The Mathematics & Statistics Division representatives include mathematicians and statisticians from across the Atlantic region.

Our annual conference, held jointly with Computer Science, is designed to attract the attention of undergraduate students, and provides a venue at which students and faculty can network, present research and share ideas. The conference features plenary talks in both mathematics (the Blundon lecture) and statistics (the Fields lecture). The Blundon lecture is named for Professor W.J. Blundon, the first head of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Memorial University of Newfoundland, who was a prominent figure in mathematics and educational circles in Atlantic Canada for many years. The conference also hosts a problem-solving competition for teams of undergraduate students from Atlantic Canadian universities.

We are also interested in issues related to mathematics education, including curriculum and pedagogy in schools and universities.
