For over a dozen high school students from Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy (TJCA) in Mooresboro, N.C., one of the final weeks of their summer vacation has given them new insight into the practical application of mathematics principles they have learned in the classroom. Through a grant from the Stonecutter Foundation (Spindale, N.C.), the teens participated in a brand new program designed to offer them enrichment in the subject of math. “We have offered a variety of different sessions that we hope will aid in their development,” said Dr. Jim Johnson, assistant professor of math at Gardner-Webb University and a co-creator of the academy.
