Elmont Memorial Students Participate in Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair

Elmont Memorial High School had 11 students participate in the Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair, with four students earning county-level recognitions.

This school year, students in eighth to 11th grade spent the first semester independently researching a mathematics topic that was at least one grade-level beyond their current studies. They competed against their peers at the high school’s Math Fair in January, and the top presentations were selected to participate at the Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair.

Students from across Long Island submitted their research papers and prepared presentations for the fair. However, in light of the current social distancing limitations, students’ written work was judged.

Britney Bennett, a 10th grader, was awarded a Gold Medal for her research on "Global Warming and Derivates;” Chigozirim Ifebi, a ninth grader, was awarded a Silver Medal for her research on "Tensors: Applications in Computer Science and Physics;" Akinwale Agesin, an 11th grader, was awarded a Bronze Medal for his research on “Maclaurin Series;” and, Liliann Ulysse, an 11th grader, was awarded a Bronze Medal for her research on "Machine Learning and Stock Prices.”
