SMS Students from Ms. McKenzie’s algebra classes win prizes through Algebra Nation
Algebra Nation is an online resource that all MCPSS Algebra students may acces. For each topic learned in class, there are a variety of videos available for each student’s learning style. Some of the videos go more in depth for the struggling student, while others are more of an overview for students who may just need a refresher.
It has five different individuals to choose from, so each student can watch a person who matches up with his or her learning style. In addition to this, each student receives an Algebra Nation workbook that goes along with the videos in each section. There is an online wall as well where students can ask questions and receive live help from study experts or other students in Mobile County.
The students can earn Karma points by helping other students or directing them towards a video that would help. At the end of each month, the person with the most Karma points out of Mobile County receives a free iPad and case. The top 5 or so students after that receive a prize pack! It has been an amazing program for all of Ms. McKenzie’s students.
We all love Algebra Nation!
