  • The Brock Go Club is in the big leagues!  See the article published in the Brock News

Caribou Mathematics Competition

The Caribou Cup is a series of six international online mathematics contests held every year for grade 3-12 school students.  In 2013/14 over 16,000 students from 14 countries wrote 57,000 tests. More details including all previous contests and video solutions can be found on the Caribou Contest home page and YouTube.

Math Kangaroo Contest

The Math Kangaroo Contest is an international mathematics contest for students in grades 1 through 12.  It is held once a year at universities across the country, and participants may write the contest in English or in French.  The purpose of this contest is to engage students in mathematics problems and puzzles in an enjoyable way, and to encourage their advancement in this area.  In 2015, Brock University will be hosting the Math Kangaroo Contest on Sunday, March 29, 2015.  Details regarding training sessions will be released in late December/early January.  Additional information regarding the Math Kangaroo Contest can be found on the organization’s website: kangaroo.math.ca

Department of Mathematics & Statistics Math Camp

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics hosts a summer Math Camp during the month of July, for students in grades 7 to 12.  The Math Camp combines a fun and stimulating mathematics program with the adventure of a summer camp.  For more about the camp, or to register online, please visit the camp website, or contact mathcamp@brocku.ca.

Society of Actuaries

Two statistics courses: Math 3P82 and Math 5P84 have been approved by VEE (Validation by Education Experience) Administration Committee of the Society of Actuaries in December, 2013.  To receive credit, candidates will need a grade of 70, B or better in each associated course.  Please direct any VEE questions to vee@soa.org.

MATH 4F90 is the 4th-year Honours Thesis Project course, in which you will work with a supervisor on a project in the area of pure or applied math, mathematics education, or statistics. This course is open to mathematics or combined mathematics majors who meet the course requirements. Potential supervisors and associated topics can be found on the current faculty page.

On the right is the student handbook for all current graduate students.

Two Statistics courses: Math 3P82 and Math 5P84 have been approved by VEE (Validation by Education Experience) Administration Committee of the Society of Actuaries on November 29,2007. To receive credit, candidates will need a grade of 70, B or better in each associated course. Please direct any VEE questions to vee@soa.org.

Learning Objects

These learning environments were developed at Brock University in 2002. Supported by a grant from eduSource Canada (Canadian Network of Learning Object Repositories), the work was undertaken by mathematics faculty, mathematics and computer science students, and mathematics teachers from the Niagara Region. We are planning on developing other Learning Objects in the future. See also Learning Objects developed by our Mathematics students.

For student developed learning objects in the MICA program, see here.
