2021/2022 Events

In accordance with provincial health and Dalhousie guidelines, physical attendance at these events will require proof of vaccination for people age 12 and over, as of October 4. More details to follow.

Math Circles events at Dal during the 2021/2022 school year

Below is our tentative schedule for upcoming events in the 2021/2022 school year. Events' timing is from 6 - 7:15pm. The events will be hosted via a blended approach, meaning that you can join us in-person, on campus at the Chase Building, or you can join virtually on Zoom.

These workshops are appropriate for senior high and advanced junior high students, but an advanced elementary student could benefit as well.

  • For those attending in person, masks will be required at all times. Different family units should also try to maintain a 2-meter distance.

NOTE: The event will be recorded.

October 27
Speaker: Jonathan Tot (Dalhousie)

Topic: The Collatz Conjecture

Abstract: TBA

Register for October 27

September 22, 6 - 7:15pm. In-person (limited) and online!
Speaker: Dr. Asmita Sodhi (Dalhousie)

Topic: How to Count Votes

Abstract: This sounds like it should be easy—we just ask people who or what they want to vote for, count the votes, and see which option has the most… right? This is one way of counting votes, but this way can leave a lot of people unsatisfied with the winner. There are lots of other ways of voting and counting votes, some of which we'll see in this talk. We'll explore some voting systems, voting paradoxes, and also have a little election of our own!
