On Wednesday, March 31st, Dalhousie University hosted its latest virtual Math Circles evening. Dr. Asmita Sodhi (Dalhousie Mathematics Department) led the seminar, providing interactive opportunities and the mathematical motivation to make the event a great success. The topic itself, Exploding Dots, had our curiosity piqued, and the ensuing mathematical connection did not disappoint. The hour-long presentation was an uplifting mathematical experience. Time itself seemed to “explode”. First, participants were introduced to a ”2 to 1” exploding dot machine, where they introduced numbers into the furthermost right block of a series of attached boxes, and watched as pairs of dots exploded into one dot in the adjacent box to the left. This pattern continued in adjacent boxes until participants discovered that they were actually expressing numbers in base 2, or binary form.
