Copiague Middle School math research students recently competed in the Long Island Math Fair at Hofstra University. Under the direction of Copiague Middle School math teacher Stephen Temme, the students wrote an eight-page math research paper on a math topic of their choice. Once the paper was accepted, they took the challenge of translating their written paper to an oral presentation.

Students were required to explain their paper and show their mastery of the mathematical concepts they learned before two judges. They competed against other seventh and eighth grade students from across Long Island. The district congratulates the following Copiague Middle School students: Samantha Huynh (eighth grade, silver medal); Giselle Peralta (seventh grade, silver medal); Jonathan Singh (seventh grade, bronze medal); and Alice Sztabinski (eighth grade, gold medal).
