26th MATHCOUNTS STATE COMPETITION

PLYMOUTH STATE UNIVERSITY
March 7, 2009

MATHCOUNTS is a national mathematics competition for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. In New Hampshire, it is sponsored by the New Hampshire Society of Professional Engineers and the New Hampshire Teachers of Mathematics.

The state is divided into six regions. The students first compete at their local schools and then at the regional level. The three winning teams from each region, together with top-scoring individuals not represented on those teams, then compete at the state level to determine the four winning individuals who will represent New Hampshire at the national competition in Orlando, Florida on May 8th.

At the state meet, the students compete in three written tests. Based on those results, the 12 top-scoring competitors then compete in the Countdown Round, a fast-paced test in which the questions are projected on a screen and the students have a maximum of 45 seconds in which to answer.

The individual winners who will make up the NH State Team that goes to Orlando, Florida to compete in the National Competition on May 8, 2009 are:

1st Place – Priyanka Satpute – Homeschool, Bedford
2nd Place- Surya (Raju) Bhupatiraju – Fairgrounds Middle School, Nashua
3rd Place – Jeffrey Li – Richmond Middle School, Hanover
4th Place – Siddhartha Jayanti – Richmond Middle School, Hanover
The three winning teams are as follows:
1st Place – Fairgrounds Middle School – Nashua Coach: Shushuai Zhu
2nd Place – Richmond Middle School – Hanover Coach: John Kitzmiller
3rd Place – Hollis-Brookline School – Hollis Coach: Rosemary Mezzocchi
As coach of the winning team, Shushuai Zhu will be the coach for the State Team and will go with the team to Orlando.

The winners of the Countdown Round are as follows:

1st Place – Surya (Raju) Bhupatiraju – Fairgrounds Middle School, Nashua
2nd Place – Priyanka Satpute – Homeschool, Bedford
3rd Place – Jeffrey Li – Richmond Middle School, Hanover
