Two teams of Ross seventh graders and one individual student competed in last week’s preliminary round of the Long Island Math Fair, which took place at Suffolk County Community College. This math fair differs from others in that it calls for students to investigate a project for several months before orally presenting their research to the judging panel.
Isabella H. and Zanzy R. described the Fibonacci sequence and its applications, while Everett R., Lillian R., and Maya T. focused on the role of probability in genetics. Andrew A. was recognized for his work on logic, earning a spot in the competition’s final round, which will be held in April at Hofstra University.
Ross School mathematics teacher Heather D’Agostino served on the math fair’s judges’ committee.
Congratulations to all of the participants!
