BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Twenty sixth grade students from Eisenhower Intermediate School participated in the NJ Math League Competition, and earned top honors. 

The competition was a one-time contest consisting of 35 multiple choice questions that were completed in 30 minutes. As the questions progressed, so did the difficulty. It is common for students to not complete all of the questions in the allotted time and it is commendable to get 80 percent correct. 

The team score is made up of the team’s top five scores combined.

Two students from Eisenhower ranked within the top 50 students. Christopher Qiu earned a perfect score and Thoshan Omprakash earned the sixth highest score in the state.

The students attended a practice session, which was conducted by Michele Hecht, sixth grade math teacher, and Karen Popadiuk, fifth grade AI teacher. 

All students who participated in the competition are congratulated for challenging themselves and making a positive contribution to the team.
