Flatbush Students Compete in Math Majors of America Tournament for High Schools 2017

On Sunday, April 2nd, a high school mathematics competition was held at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. The tests contained rigorous problem-solving questions which required serious concentration, even for the best of students. Six Jewish schools competed, among them being Frisch, Kushner, and our own Yeshivah of Flatbush. Six Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School students competed, mentored by Ms. Shulman, and coached by Dr. Goldberg: Moses Bakst, Joseph Braha, Avi Mikhli, Gregory Pinkhasov, Yaron Sternberg, and Joseph Sutton. As a school, Flatbush came in third place. In the mixer round, in which students from different schools are mixed on teams, four students placed top three. And finally, Yaron placed second out of 36 students individually. The competition was a fun test of ability, and it complemented a fun trip to Yale, in which we got a tour and a good sense of their Jewish life. ~ Joe Braha, Class of 2017
