Algebra Nation, a state-funded math program that is free for students, schools, and teachers in SC, will be awarding Alice Drive Middle School 8th-grade student Anna Galeano an iPad for her exemplary work in helping her peers across the state succeed in Algebra I.
Anna Galeano earned the most ‘Karma Points’ in South Carolina for the month of January. Two of her other classmates, Ha Tram and Daniel Braden, placed in the top 5 for the month of January as well. Both of these young gentlemen received a prize pack from Algebra Nation. Additionally, five other students from Ms. Marina Mosneaguta’s Algebra classes placed in the top 10 in the South Carolina Karma Point Leaderboard.
Karma Points are earned whenever a student helps another student on the statewide 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 with accompanying workbook, built for algebra students and teachers in South Carolina by South Carolina teachers. The program provides around-the-clock support to more than 43,000 math students, with a personalized learning program of 24/7 homework help from Study Experts, teachers, and peers.
