Welcome to NS Math Circles!

Nova Scotia Math Circles is dedicated to enriching the experiences of Nova Scotia students in all areas of mathematics.

Our program vision is to foster enthusiasm for math through interactive, creative, and meaningful presentations.

We offer monthly events at Dalhousie for senior high and advanced junior high students, and visit schools all across the province for free.

Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest Registration for the 2024 Canadian Math Kangaroo contest is now open! Register by Feb 25 to avoid the late fee. It's a fun math contest for grades 1 through 12. It will be hosted at Dalhousie, in the Kenneth C. Rowe building, on Sunday, March 24.

~~~In-person with option to attend online~~~
Speaker: Erick Lee (HRCE)

Topic: Twists and Turns – Exploring Mathematical Loops and Spirals

Abstract: Join us as we create and explore spirolaterals. These geometric patterns are created by following simple rules. The twisting and turning lines create graceful works of mathematical art. We'll also try our hand at solving a Loops puzzle and see how this puzzle is connected to Knot Theory. If we have time, we'll also play the classic math game Sprouts. This is a simple paper and pencil strategy game that has a surprising amount of depth.

Thank you Eastlink for renewing your Half-Million Dollar Donation!!!

On June 17th, 2014 we announced a partnership with Eastlink. They donated $500,000 to NS Math Circles for the program to further expand its outreach into junior high schools and begin outreach in the elementary schools. In the spring of 2019, Eastlink renewed its $500,000 donation for a further five years, allowing us to continue our outreach, improve our program, and widen our scope. Thank You to Lee Bragg and Eastlink for these generous donations!
