Newton County Student Wins Math Award
Algebra Nation awarded Newton County High School 9th-grade student Alexis Tran an iPad for her exemplary work in helping her peers across the state succeed in Algebra I.
Algebra Nation presented the award on Tuesday at the school “I am very proud of Alexis for working so hard to win this award,” Newton County Algebra 1 teacher Wynter Bounds said in a news release. “She is a very talented and deserving young lady. It is an honor to have her as my student.”
Tran earned the most ‘Karma Points’ in Mississippi. Karma Points are earned whenever a student helps another student on the Algebra Wall – such as directing them to an appropriate video to address their question, explaining how to start solving a math problem, or by showing their peers where they’ve made an error. Each month, the student who earns the most Karma Points in the state receives a free iPad, and the students who place 2nd-5th receive prize packs with Algebra Nation T-shirts, pencils and stickers. Algebra Nation is a free, online resource built for algebra student and teachers in Mississippi. The program provides around-the-clock support to more than 500,000 math students across six states, with personalized learning program of 24/7 homework help from Study Experts, teachers, and peers, according to a news release.
