The King’s Academy’s elementary students recently participated and excelled in the National Noetic Learning Math Spring Competition.

The contest encourages students’ interest in math, develops problem-solving skills and inspires students to excel. Two math teams from TKA, Masters of Math (fourth grade) and Mathletes (sixth grade), represented the school’s Explore program, which is a project-based program taught by a certified gifted instructor.

During the contest, students were given 45 minutes to solve 20 problems. The problems challenge students and enrich their problem-solving experiences. TKA students Drew Danion (sixth grade), Elliana Nabhan (fourth grade) and Ashley Fowler (fourth grade) placed in the top 10 percent nationally.

TKA elementary math team coach Tom Fowler has a doctorate in algorithms, combinatorics and optimization from the Georgia Institute of Technology and has taught mathematics at the collegiate level more than 15 years.

Explore is a project-based program for students in second through sixth grade and is taught by Lisa Anderson, a certified gifted instructor. To find out more information about TKA’s Explore program, contact Bonnie Mutz at
