Bronx Science Math Team, 1980

I was on the Math Team at the Bronx High School of Science, class of 1980.

 

I don't remember why, but a photographer from Life magazine came and took photos of us.  They were never used in the magazine.

 

I'm the fuzzy kid with the long hair.  The other two in these pictures are David Chiang and Benji Fisher.

The math team was a great experience, because we were left to our own devices a good deal, to work out problems, investigate our own interests, and in general flex our intellectual muscles.
