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.
As we all enter these difficult times together, we are actively following the guidelines and recommendations as outlined by Dalhousie University and the public health authorities in Nova Scotia. We regrettably will be suspending all of our in-person activities till further notice. Interactive games and problems you may enjoy are available here!
Join us for our June ONLINE event!
Who: Dr. Daniele Turchetti
When: June 10th
What: Exploring Geometries
Geometry is the branch of mathematics that studies space and everything that connects to it, including shapes, angles, points, dimensions, distances, and much more. Geometers quickly realized that not only there are a lot of interesting shapes, but also (and more surprisingly!) that there is a huge variety of different spaces, with different rules governing them. In this talk, we will explore some weird, fun, interesting spaces that caught the attention of great mathematicians of history such as fractals, hyperbolic surfaces, and finite geometries. At the end, I will propose some activities that you can do with your family to have fun with these spaces too!
Extra activities and resources:
(1) Hyperbolic salads!
(2) A nice artical on Hyperbolic tessellations
No registeration is required for this event.
