What is the NSML?
The Nova Scotia High School Math League is an initiative 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 2007/2008 season we had approximately 320 participants across six regions.
The NSML 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 regions and eventually encompass the entire province.
