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 presentations on topics designed to 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. Contact Jeff Hooper if you are interested.

In 2021-22, these activities were not offered, due to the pandemic.

For the first time in summer 2019, we held a Junior Math and Computer Science Camp. The camp was held again in 2021 and 2022.  We hope to offer the camp again in 2023. Watch this space for updates!

Acadia is proud to be sponsored by AARMS.
