What is MUMS?
The Melbourne University Mathematics and Statistics Society, also known as MUMS, was formed to represent maths and stats students at Melbourne University. We welcome anyone else with an interest in maths or stats. We organise a variety of activities, including seminars, trivia competitions, barbecues and of course the annual Puzzle Hunt and Maths Olympics. We also put out our magazine Paradox at regular intervals.
If you wish to be notified of our events by email, please subscribe to our mailing list.
MUMS has a room in the Richard Berry Building (the home of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics). It is located on the ground floor, opposite the main reception. This room is mainly used socially, and all are welcome to stop by. The MUMS noticeboard is directly outside the room, and lists our upcoming events and seminars.
MUMS is affiliated to the University of Melbourne Student Union. Support from UMSU and from the Department is gratefully acknowledged.
