Math Student Goes for the Gold Pic 1

Copiague Middle School eighth-grader Adam Antosiak has been awarded gold distinction in the Long Island Math Fair at Suffolk County Community College on March 3. This is the first time a Copiague Middle School student has been awarded gold honors.

To enter the competition, Antosiak wrote a properly cited math research paper on a math topic of his choice. He started the process in October when he chose the topic “Fibonacci’s Numbers.” After his paper was selected to participate in the Long Island Math Fair, he had to deliver an oral presentation from his research paper and display board.
