What are Karma Points and how do I earn them?
Whenever you help other students on the Algebra Wall, a Study Expert will award you Karma Points.
You can earn Karma Points by directing other students to videos that will address their questions, by explaining how to start solving math problems that are posted on the Wall, or by showing other students where in their solutions they’ve made an error.
But remember, you won’t earn Karma Points if you just give answers to other students’ questions!
How do I know how many Karma Points I have?
You can check the Karma Points Leaderboard to see how many points you’ve earned and how you rank compared to other students.
The number of Karma Points that you have earned is also shown on each wall post that you make and on the top of the screen when you are logged in.
Why do I want to earn Karma Points? Can I win prizes?
The best way to learn math is to help others. The Wall is a great place to practice what you know. In addition to bragging rights, Karma Points lead to great prizes! Recently, students have won t-shirts, pizza parties, and iPads! For more information about Karma Points, log in to Algebra Nation and visit the leaderboard.
Can I also get community service hours for the time I spend volunteering on the Wall?
Yes. Many schools and organizations will allow you to earn Community Service hours for helping others on the Wall. To make this easy for you (and for the adults in your life), we have created a special report that you can download from your My Account page in Algebra Nation to show proof of the time you spent on the Wall, the kind of help you provided, and the number of Karma Points that you earned.
Each report includes a time-stamped activity log and a unique six-digit code that your teachers or counselors can use to verify your activity.
What do I do if I have a question about my Karma Points?
You can post your question on the student Wall or email us at help@AlgebraNation.com
