Suresh answered all 20 questions correctly.

Noetic Learning Math Contest is a national mathematics contest for elementary and middle school students. The goal of the competition is to encourage students' interest in math, to develop their problem solving skills, and to inspire them to excel in math.

More than 34,000 students representing 776 schools across the country took part in this spring’s contest. There were more than 8,000 students competing in the fourth-grade contest.

"The contest results demonstrate our students’ great problem solving skills and math talents,'' Sadkovich said. "They also show that our students can rise to the occasion and can meet the challenge.''
