Students Advance in L.I. Math Fair Competition

Seven H.B. Thompson Middle School students recently presented, explained and defended their research math papers at the Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair Nassau County preliminary round held at Hofstra University, with three advancing to the finals on April 15, also at Hofstra.

Students advancing to the finals are seventh-grader Jason Langman, who gave a presentation on Magic Squares, and eighth-graders Ronit Dhulia (Exploring the Patterns within Pascal’s Triangle and Their Uses in Mathematics) and Sophia Jang (Mathematics of Networks).

Also presenting from H.B. Thompson were seventh-graders Anouska Dalvi (the Fourth Dimension), Jeff Min (the Pythagorean Theorem) and Nicholas Vetrano (Fibonacci) and eighth-grade student Kai Wang (Mental Math).

HBT math teacher Paul McNamara congratulates the HBT participants here. Good luck to Jason, Ronit and Sophia, who will now compete against the best in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
