“This year we have added a new geometry course,” said Hedgepeth. “Both Algebra Nation and Geometry Nation have videos that students and their parents can watch with supplemental workbooks.”
Another component of the program is "The Wall,” where students can visit from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. and get real-time help from teachers and others peers across Mississippi.
“DeSoto County Schools was the first advocate for us to add a geometry component to our program,” Hedgepeth said. “I know these resources are going to be helpful when students are preparing for the ACT.”
Cara Turner, a math teacher at Houlka Attendance Center, said, "I have used Algebra Nation for the last three years. My students' proficiency and advanced scores have gone from 5.9% to 69%. The extra support by Algebra Nation has turned my program around."
