For Immediate Release
Md. - The number
crunchers were out in full force in Salisbury, Md., today! No, they were not a
team of special auditors but 57 students from 19 schools in Delaware, Maryland and
Virginia who participated in the 31st annual Eastern Shore High
School Mathematics Competition at Salisbury University. The students
demonstrated their math expertise on both an individual and team basis.
This year students investigated
relationships between prime numbers. As part of the team competition, they
worked to find prime numbers with particular properties. Prime numbers continue
to be an important area of research with some of their mathematical properties
yet to be discovered.
Saints Peter & Paul (Easton, Md.)
finished in first place in the team competition, while North Caroline (Ridgely,
Md.) finished second and Mardela (Mardela Springs, Md.) came in third.
Michael Li of James M. Bennett
(Salisbury, Md.) took first place honors in the individual student competition,
while Hunter Geisel of North Caroline was runner-up and Xiaofei "Bruce" Wei of
The Gunston School (Centreville, Md.) finished third.
Other participating schools included: Laurel
and Seaford in Delaware; Colonel Richardson, Crisfield, Parkside, Pocomoke, Salisbury
Christian, Snow Hill, Stephen Decatur, Washington, Wicomico, Worcester Prep and
Worcester Tech in Maryland; Broadwater Academy in Virginia.
