UB Mathematics and Canisius Mathematics departments have been hosting the National Mathematics Competition (NMC) since 2009. The NMC is a nationwide annual mathematics competition for students from Grade 4 to 11 administered by the Korean-American Scientists Engineering Association. The annual competition, held in April, provides an advanced level of mathematics problems for students across the US.
The regional NMC, includes the Buffalo and Rochester areas, is organized by Dr. Jung (UB) and Dr. Kahng (Canisius). The purpose of the event is to bring together local students for a day filled with exciting opportunities for students to participate in a math competition while working with peer students on math projects.
For a successful organization of the event, a small army of volunteers includes our graduate and undergraduate math students who serve as a event managers and mentors.
This NMC event promotes interest in mathematics and science for
students in Grades 4 to 11 by showing them how to develop more
advanced levels of mathematical thinking.The NMC in Buffalo has
only a short history, but has been establishing a tradition as a
