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.

Information about our 2019/2020 week-long trips are available here!

Join us for our September event!

Who: Dr. Peter Selinger
When: Wednesday, September 25th, 2019, 6:30-8:30pm
Where: Mathematics Learning Centre - Chase Building Room 119
What: Fun with slide rules

The slide rule, based on an invention by John Napier in the 17th century, was the most important calculation tool for scientists and engineers for almost 350 years. It was still in widespread use in the 1950s and 1960s, but disappeared almost completely after it was replaced by the electronic calculator in the 1970s. In this math circle, you will learn how to use a slide rule to compute multiplications, divisions, roots, powers, and other operations. You will also learn some of the theory behind how a slide rule works. Each participant will assemble their own working slide rule out of materials that will be provided.

Pizza and pop will be served. To register for this event, send an email to mathcircles@dal.ca.
