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 for our February event!
Who: Dr. David Wolfe
When: Wednesday, February 21, 2018, 6:30-8:30pm
Where: Chase Building Room 119, Dalhousie University
What: Top-Down Induction
Some of you may have seen the mathematical proof technique known as induction. If so, I'm sorry... you've been taught it all wrong! If you haven't seen it, all the better, because top-down induction is a more powerful, less error-prone, and more natural way of discovering inductive proofs than is usually taught in school. My apologies in advance if your current math teacher doesn't agree.
Along the way we'll see some beautiful theorems and a few elegant picture proofs.
Pizza and pop will be served. To register for this event, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you Eastlink for a Half-Million Dollar Donation!!!
On June 17th, 2014 we announced a partnership with Eastlink.
They are donating $500,000 to NS Math Circles over the next 5 years!
We will now be able to further expand our outreach into junior high schools and begin outreach in the elementary schools.
Thank You to Lee Bragg and Eastlink for this generous donation!
