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 presentation on topics designed go beyond what students see in high school. Similar to "Math Circles" events organized by Dalhousie University.
2018 - 19 dates are:
- December 3 at Acadia
- February 11 at Acadia
- May 6 at Acadia
- 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 (Jeff.Hooper@acadiau.ca ) if you are interested. Dates are still being finalized for 2018-2019.
NEW FOR 2019: In July of 2019, Acadia University plans to launch the first junior math and computer science camp in Nova Scotia. This is an opportunity for young students in the Annapolis Valley to participate in a week of fun and enriching science-based activities, and develop their curiosity and enjoyment of math and computer science. The camp will be for students in Grades 5 and 6. Stay tuned for details!
For more information on math outreach, contact Hugh Chipman.
Acadia is proud to be sponsored by AARMS.
