Community Activities
Some of the initiatives that are ongoing include:
Math Circles
The purpose of the Math Circles program is to foster
interest in mathematics among talented high school students and
expose them to mathematics beyond the high school curriculum.
The Nova Scotia High School Math League
The Nova Scotia High School Math League is an intiative
run by the Dalhousie University Mathematics and Statistics Department
designed to stimulate and challenge high school students across
the province. The NSML is based on the very successful Newfoundland
Math League which has been running since 1987. The first game was
run in Halifax in 2002 by Richard Hoshino and Sarah McCurdy. Since
then there has been no looking back. At the end of the 20032004
season we had approximately 200 participants across three school
boards.
It is an excellent venue for students to compete in a friendly manner
and learn some mathematics in the process. Over the next years,
we anticipate the NSML to expand to include additional school boards
and eventually encompass the entire province.

Statistics Consulting Service
The Statistics Consulting Service was established in 1974 by the
Department of Mathematics and Statistics with the aim of providing
professional consultation to researchers and graduate students.
We welcome problems both from within Dalhousie University and from
the government, business and scientific communities outside Dalhousie.
