About Us

NS Math Circles is a mathematics outreach program based out of the Department of Mathematics & Statistics at Dalhousie University. It began about a decade ago when two graduate students organized evening math events for local high school students. A graduate student or faculty member would give a 2 hour hands-on math presentation and a pizza supper would be provided for the students.

Late in February 2009, the Imperial Oil Foundation decided to fund NS Math Circles with $100,000 each year for four years, so that we could expand our outreach by developing curriculum related workshops to take into high schools across Nova Scotia, free of charge.

In June of 2014 Eastlink began a partnership with NS Math Circles. They are donating $500,000 to the program over a 5 year period. This allows us to expand our outreach into junior high and elementary schools! We are very excited about this partnership!
