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.
Update: As schools are now allowing visitors again, we are happy to announce that we will be resuming our normal activities, including visits to schools and monthly events
on campus. Our website will be updated over the next few days to reflect these changes. In the meantime, feel free to use the contact form to reach us or request a visit. We are also still happy to visit your class virtually,
particularly for schools that are far from the HRM.
Virtual Classroom Visits: We are happy to offer virtual classroom visits, via Google Meet and Zoom.
Monthly Events: To see our event schedule and sign up for an event, check out our current events.

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!

Thank you Eastlink for renewing your Half-Million Dollar Donation!!!
On June 17th, 2014 we announced a partnership with Eastlink.
They donated $500,000 to NS Math Circles for the program to further expand its outreach into junior high schools
and begin outreach in the elementary schools.
In the spring of 2019, Eastlink renewed its $500,000 donation for a further five years, allowing us to continue our outreach, improve our program,
and widen our scope.
Thank You to Lee Bragg and Eastlink for these generous donations!
