Welcome to NS Math Circles!

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.

Monthly Events: To see our event schedule and sign up for an event, check out our current events. Our previous monthly events are listed HERE.

June 15, 6pm - 7:15pm Atlantic time (In-person or Online)
Speaker: Dr. Hector Baños Cervantes

Topic: Mathematics and DNA

Abstract: DNA is found in every cell of every living thing. It carries all of the instructions for an organism to build, maintain and repair itself. DNA molecules allow this information to be passed from one generation to the next. In this interactive seminar, we will explore some of the mathematics used to model some problems relating to DNA and some of its applications. We briefly discuss topics from how DNA is used to uncover the evolutionary relationships between species to how DNA could be used to store music, videos, and other files.

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!
