Nova Scotia Math Circles is dedicated to enriching the experiences of Nova Scotia student 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.
Join us at our October Math Circles event!
Who: Dr. Richard Nowakowski
When: October 12, 2016, 6:30-8:30pm
Where: Chase Building Room 119, Dalhousie University
What: The ABCs of Dice, Euclid, Fibonacci and Games
Game 1: To start, choose two positive integers, after that a move is to remove a multiple of the smaller from the larger. The winner is the player who reduces one of the numbers to 0. For most people, knowing how to win involves Fibonacci. We'll show that Euclid knew better.
Game 2: Challenge: I choose a positive integer (heap) less than 100, and you put a 6 sided die (cube) on the table. I start by turning the cube by a quarter turn and take the number showing the top face away from the heap. We alternate turning and taking. The player who cannot move loses. Can you beat me?
If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to mathcircles @ dal.ca so that we know how much pizza to order!
