Seventeen Wheatley Students Earn Medals at the Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair!

On Friday, 12 April, 17 Wheatley students headed to Hofstra University in order to compete in the annual Al Kalfus Long Island Mathematics Fair.

Students from across Long Island came to compete at this prestigious event. Each student wrote a research paper on a mathematics topic of their own choosing.  Top papers often have the students’ own creative twists and original mathematics as part of their research. Students presented their research to a panel of judges followed by a question and answer period.  Achieving at this level is an extraordinary accomplishment for high school students!

We are proud to announce we had 5 students win gold medals, 5 students win silver and 7 students win bronze medals.

Thank you to Mr. Belackas, Mr. Gadamowitz, Mr. Meyers and Mr. Paulson for volunteering as judges. Thank you as well to Dr. Teseo for serving as their coach and providing the write-up and photos.
