Two Chatterton students were accepted into the Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students, a program for talented mathematicians looking to challenge themselves and learn math beyond what is taught in the classroom.

Held at SUNY Old Westbury on the weekends, the acceptance of Nolan Auyeung and Hana Kwok makes them among the top 1/10th of math students across Long Island.

“Hana and Nolan are both exceptional math students,” noted their teacher, James Keenan. “They demonstrate outstanding number sense, are skilled in the use of mathematical operations, and have a significant ability to solve math problems. This program is sure to challenge them and allow them to grow tremendously as problem solvers.”

The Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students’ mission is to enhance the problem-solving skills of exceptionally talented students using advanced mathematics and creative thinking. Open to grades 4-9, acceptance into the institute is based on exam performance. Registration for next year’s exam closes on April 10.
