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 October event!
Who: Sarah Meng Li
When: Wednesday, November 20th, 2019, 6:30-8:30pm
Where: Mathematics Learning Centre - Chase Building Room 119
What: Logic and Puzzles
Math is not just computation. Mathematical thinking is a way of observing and understanding the world. Math allows us to see hidden order in real world chaos. This workshop will introduce you to another aspect of Mathematics, logic. We will show you how to use mathematical thinking to solve problems, identify the hidden patterns, and think like a mathematician.
In the first part of the workshop, we will talk about the fundamental building block in mathematics, namely set theory. There will be a buffet of set puzzles for you to investigate sets. We will use Venn diagrams to understand operations on sets and use these diagrams to solve puzzles.
In the second part of the workshop, we will play with logic! Logic is a systematic way of thinking that allows us to parse the meanings of sentences and to deduce new information from old information. We will use logic to distinguish Truth Tellers from Liars, and use logical inferences to play Werewolves.
Pizza and pop will be served. To register for this event, send an email to email@example.com.
