The Beginning of Math Circles

On Wednesday, September 25th, Dalhousie University hosted this year’s first Math Circles seminar. Our students are regular attendees at these events, and enjoy the interesting and interactive ways that mathematical topics are presented. The room was full of interested math students as Dr. Peter Selinger presented a seminar on “fun with slide rules”. The slide rule, invented in the 17th century, was the preeminent calculation tool used by scientists and engineers for almost 350 years. It was not until the 1970s that it was replaced by the electronic calculator. During Dr. Selinger’s math circle presentation, participants assembled their own slide rules and learned how to use them to compute multiplications, divisions, roots and powers. It was a great mathematical journey to the past as we discovered the power of this amazing ruled device. Everyone enjoyed the interactive presentation, pizza and camaraderie of math friends. King’s-Edgehill School was well represented by: Olivia Drava, Harrison Klein, Nikki Kolla, Tanvi Manchineni, Stanislav Matkovskyi, Masaki Miyakawa, Aden O’Callaghan, River Qi, Eric Qian, Sachaa Rudrum-Bhimji, Polet Sanchez and Victor Zhou. We look forward to our next outing to Dalhousie Math Circles in October.
