Algebra Students Win State Honors (2011)


Four Summit School of Ahwatukee 7th Grade Algebra Students Win State Honors

The results are in from the 2011 State Algebra Contest, sponsored by the Arizona Association of Teachers of Mathematics (AATM) last May.

Josh Pagone and Amber Barto were two of the four Summit seventh graders who scored in the top ten percent statewide.  Summit students Jonathan Booher and Alicia Farr earned an additional distinction by being among the top 10 highest scores in state. “This algebra course is equivalent to a high school class and they give it their all,” explains teacher Christy Guidorizzi. “My students have such a great attitude about learning, making my job as their teacher extremely fun and rewarding.”
Approximately 600 students state wide participated in this competition, which was open to all students enrolled in a first year Algebra class.
