Ammons Math Hawks Advance to State Competition! Ammons Math Hawks are once again advancing to state competition in Orlando. Of the top 6 schools, only one was a public school, Ammons. Last year we placed 3rd locally, but beat all Dade County teams at state. The first place team has 3 teacher/coaches, a separate elective class for competition prep, and 15 high school mentors. Great work, Math Hawks and their coach, Mr. Earle.
Algebra Nation Alen Zacharia, a seventh grader, is the latest iPad winner from Algebra Nation. He earned his prize by spending time on the Algebra Wall, and getting karma points by helping other students learn algebra during the month of November. Alen says it was fun, and helpful to spend the time on the wall. A special note; after the presentation (see picture), he was called to a science class to explain a math problem, a task he was more than happy to do!
