Advanced Research 11 is an elective course. Students refine their research skills while conducting new or continued investigations in mathematics, science, or social science. Although it is not a requirement, students often choose to work with a mentor at a university or research facility outside the high school. In such cases, students must provide their own transportation. Mathematics/Computer Science students analyze problems, do mathematical research, and submit summaries of articles relevant to the subject they have selected. Open-ended questions are constructed, and a paper is written which is submitted to the Long Island Math Fair. A business education teacher will assist all Advanced Research 11 students in preparing presentation materials and skills to support the communication of their research. Each student is also required to construct a research presentation board, prepare an oral presentation, and compete in the SHS Research Fair. All Advanced Research 11 student abstracts are published in the SHS Journal of Abstracts.
