Derryfield Mathletes participated in their last competition on February 7 and came away state champions! According to their coach, Mr. Induni, “we won the SMASH State championship for the S (small) division. Kedai Wei placed first among all freshmen in New Hampshire and Kate Jiang placed third among all seniors in New Hampshire. Additionally, we competed in NEML (New England Math League) which is an on-site, paper and pencil competition, as well as Math Madness which is a digital competition.” While there were no awards for either of these competitions, it was great to expand the team’s participation in larger competitions. Additionally, Mr. Induni took a team of four to Worcester Polytech Institute in the fall and Kate Jiang received an accommodation and scholarship offer for her placement in that tournament. At this point in the year the math team is done competing; however, they continue to meet as a team to prepare for next year and to review missed problems. Congratulations is certainly deserved for this dedicated group after a successful year of computing. When asked if the team competes at all doing the summer, Mr. Induni replied, “No summer activity… but that’s not a bad idea!”
