Bringing home a total of 38 medals, the Syosset Central School District had a very impressive showing at the 2018 Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair held at Hofstra University in April. Students competed against schools from all across Nassau County. The students selected a mathematical topic, thoroughly researched the topic, prepared a written report, which included their own ideas and creative input, and then presented their work to a panel of judges. 

Eighteen Syosset student won medals in the high school competition and 20 Syosset students won medals in the middle school competition. The Syosset Central School District congratulates all the participants in this year’s Long Island Math Fair!
