Abhinuv Allu, Melinda Blumenstock, Justin Cohen, Mathew Herman, Varun Jauhar, Justin Lee, Max Liu and Justin Smith—all from South Woods Middle School in Syosset—received medals ranging from gold to bronze at the final round of the Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair last month.
The Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair is an annual competition sponsored by the Nassau and Suffolk County Math Teachers’ Association and the New York Metropolitan Section of the Mathematical Association of America, which unites nearly 1,200 students in grades 7-12 from Nassau and Suffolk counties to conduct independent research on a math topic that interests them. Students whose papers are accepted make a 15-minute preliminary round presentation to the judges. Students who make a successful presentation are invited to participate in the final round.
