In Math Research, you'll discover exciting things about new and familiar areas of mathematics, expand upon your existing knowledge of math, as well as further your study with original research! Next, you will develop a presentation and paper that best captures your research findings. The culmination will be presenting your findings at the Al Kalfus Math Fair at Hofstra University where 1500 other math-loving students on Long Island participate annually. North Shore's Math Research program is designed to get students involved and interested leading to a paper being written (for the Intel and/or Siemen's Research Competition) during senior year.
Have you ever thought about where math is applied in the real world? Do you enjoy answering questions and making discoveries? Do you want to add value to your college resume? If you are interested in participating in math research reach out to Ms. Nora Greene today!
