Port Jeff Problem Solvers!

An educationally enriching experience took place for Port Jefferson Middle School students when they participated in the 2018-19 annual sixth-grade New York Mathematics League contest.

Sixth-graders Thales Cheng, Sofia Freitas, Evan Monaghan, Emily Snyder and Colin Veit worked together on the academically oriented competition, which consisted of a variety of math topics, including algebra, geometry and problem-solving. According to sixth-grade math teacher Megan Ryan, they enjoyed the challenge and are on a positive path in exploring further mathematical ideas.

“This is an exceptional achievement and the students definitely benefit from the challenge by learning how to think about and solve complex problems,” Ms. Ryan said.
