  • Monthly Khan Academy Winner

    Posted by Raymond Jackson at 1/12/2017

    The 8th Grade Math classes proudly announce the winner of our monthly Khan Academy contest. Arturo Rico has won the points competition for the second month in a row! This contest period started on December 7th and ended on January 8th. CONGRATULATIONS Arturo!

    Our next monthly contest runs from January 9th to February 8th. Please encourage our 8th graders to earn those points through independent, diagnostically driven math practice on their 8th grade level concepts!

    To encourage our 8th graders to practice on their own, as they have time available, students are able to build points towards the monthly contest as they work on their mathematics mastery. The highest point winner each month wins a $10.00 WalMart gift card. The point totals are filtered for each month, so previously earned points are not included in the winning tabulation. .

    Tablets are available for student use every morning and Monday-Thursday after school. Additionally, students have access during Tiger Tutorials each school day. Khan Academy can also be accessed from any computer or smart phone off campus! There’s even a Khan Academy app available for tablets and smartphones. If students can manage 30 minutes of Khan Academy practice per day, their math foundational skills will grow considerably.

  • Tenaha 8th Graders Improve Math Skills

    Posted by Raymond Jackson at 11/16/2016

    The 8th Grade math classes At Tenaha ISD are having a monthly Khan Academy contest. After taking the first six weeks to get some 8th grade concepts mastered and learn the workings of the Khan Academy site, the 8th Graders just completed their first contest month.

    Khan Academy is a free, online learning site that is donation and supporter funded. Students who have an account can practice math concepts at any grade from Kindergarten (Early Math) through 8th by grade level and High School and College level math by course (Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, SAT, GMAT, MCAT, etc.). Students can even search for specific math concepts to practice.

    Additionally, Khan Academy is diagnostically driven. If a student is having difficulty with a topic, more of that type problem is provided. If a student is successfully answering problems, the program challenges them with higher level problems. When students reach concepts that they are unfamiliar with, hints are provided (with step by step explanations) and most questions have detailed video lessons available at the click of their mouse. Tablets are available for student use every morning and Monday-Thursday after school. Additionally, students have access during Tiger Tutorials each school day. Khan Academy can also be accessed from any computer or smart phone off campus! There’s even a Khan Academy app available.
