The Blakers Mathematics Competition was established with a bequest from the family of Professor Larry Blakers after his death in 1995.

The first Competition was a local event, for UWA students only, in 1996. Since 1997, the Competition has been held annually, open to first to third year students at any Western Australian university.

Professor Blakers was a Professor of Mathematics at UWA for 30 years and Head of Department for 29 of them. He played an important role in the foundation of the Australian Mathematical Society, the Australian Association of Mathematical Teachers and the Mathematical Association of Western Australia (MAWA), and was a founder and long term Director of the National Mathematics Summer School for gifted high school students which takes place in Canberra each year.

The **2022 Blakers Mathematics Competition**
opened
on **Friday 1 July** and will close on **Friday 16 September** at **4 pm**.
Since last year's participation was low, undoubtedly due to COVID-19,
and we are not fully recovered yet, this year's competition again has a
reduced number of questions, and sorry but there are no monetary prizes.
So it's all for glory.
Solutions should be scanned to PDF and attached to an email, with candidate information in the
body of the email. Precise instructions are with the
