Burch, Spring Hill and Inman Elementary Winners of Fifth Grade Math Tourney

The sum of all the prime factors of 42 is subtracted from the sum of all the odd factors of 42. What is the result?

If you don’t know the answer, chances are the fifth grade math team at Robert J. Burch Elementary does. They are the champions of the 11th Annual Fayette County Elementary Math Tournament, fifth grade division.

After calculating 15 timed word problems, Anna Bridgeman, Jordan Hinnant, Shon Hoberg, and Mia Williams (alternate) took their team to victory with the most correct answers.

Also placing in the competition was second place winner Spring Hill Elementary with team members Nicholas Koenig, Albert Lambert, Aliaahil Lilywala, and Kirsten Gillette (alternate), and third place winner Inman Elementary with the team of Seth Holloway, Keagen McCartha, Juwan Wesley, and Isabel Henares (alternate).

The top three teams each received a trophy to take back to their school to celebrate their achievement. In addition, as the county’s fifth grade champion, Robert J. Burch’s name will be added to the plaque of champions that is displayed in the math classroom at the LaFayette Educational Center.

All 17 elementary schools had teams of three plus one alternate at the tournament. Participants were determined through each school’s math competition with the four highest scoring students advancing to the county competition.

 1st Place Robert J. Burch Elementary: (L-R) Anna Bridgeman, Jordan Hinnant, Shon Hoberg, and Mia Williams (alternate) with teachers Kim Watson (L) and Venita Jones (math bowl coach).
