Math Outreach

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.

  • 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.

    The first Math League event for 2017-18 was Saturday Nov 25, at 9am - noon,  at Acadia in Huggins Science Hall room 206.  Upcoming events are in early February and early March.  Contact Caroline Cochran ( caroline.cochran@acadiau.ca ) if you are interested.
