The 2019 - 2020 season of outreach activities stopped in mid-March 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Acadia professors and students are involved in several math-related activities for middle and high school students in the area. These activities include:
- Classroom visits (currently to middle school classes in Wolfville, New Minas, and Kentville)
- Math Buffet, an after-school event with several interactive mathematical presentations on topics designed to go beyond what students see in high school. Similar to "Math Circles" events organized by Dalhousie University.
2019 - 20 dates were December 2 and February 3.
- Math League, a Valley chapter of the NS Math League. These team-based math problem solving competitions take place on three Saturdays over the year, with a provincial championship in the spring. Contact Jeff Hooper if you are interested. In 2019 - 20, there were two events before the pandemic led to the cancellation of the remainder of the Math League season.
For more information on math outreach, contact Hugh Chipman.
Acadia is proud to be sponsored by AARMS.
