Some of Oakland's bright third graders put their math skills to the test Friday morning.

The competition featured one student from each of several Oakland elementary schools.

The contest measured the students' mastery of multiplication tables and word problems.

They had between five and 35 seconds to solve each one.

Nicol Mendoza stood alone as the champion after the final round.
