The East Meadow School District is proud to announce that East Meadow High School scholar Karolina Bajda was accepted to the Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted & Talented Students at SUNY College at Old Westbury. Bajda is among the 85 students who will pursue the study of mathematics and its applications.

To qualify for this honor, the 85 students the institute selected for its three divisions competed against approximately 450 of the top-ranking students recommended by educators from public and private schools on Long Island. Selection by the institute implies that a student is among the top one-tenth of 1% in math of all students on Long Island in his or her grade. Acceptances were based on four criteria: school transcript, teacher recommendation, a brief statement written by the student and a rigorous entrance exam.

Each student will spend a total of 50 hours in classes during the course of 20 Saturday mornings. The curriculum covers mathematical topics from algebra, geometry, discrete math and number theory, in addition to topics not included in the standard courses of study. These topics include problem-solving applied to probability, theory of finite differences, science applications and mass point geometry.

The district congratulates Bajda on being accepted to SUNY College at Old Westbury’s prestigious math institute.
