Math Outreach

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 the first time in summer 2019, we held a Junior Math and Computer Science Camp. The camp planned for 2020 was cancelled due to the pandemic.  We hope to offer a camp in 2021.

Acadia is proud to be sponsored by AARMS.
