EHT at Math Mayhem 2019

On Saturday March 30, 2019, 112 students from 13 regional high schools competed at Stockton University’s 8th annual Mathematical Mayhem competition. EHTHS sent 15 students this year to participate in both the individual and group rounds.


The individual round consisted of 18 multiple choice questions of varying difficulty to be answered in 75 minutes. Junior Vicky Zheng finished second place overall and was the top finisher from EHTHS. Sophomore Russell Bamberger also scored well, tying for 8th place overall.


For the group round students worked cooperatively in teams of three to answer 5 more challenging questions, and EHTHS claimed both first and second place. First place went to the team of Vicky Zheng, CJ Faulhaber, and Sakhi Shah (all juniors). Close behind in second place was the team of seniors Aidan Himley, Sheikh Mahmud, and Eddie Tran.


Overall the event was enjoyable, despite the extreme difficulty of the questions. EHT students continue to impress and we are looking forward to next year’s competition!
