Twenty-three Oklahoma classrooms have won $50 Pizza Hut gift cards from Apangea Math.
The contest recognized one class in each of the 23 participating schools that had the highest average of passed lessons per active student combined with total average earned Apangea Points.
Oklahoma students did an amazing amount of work during the monthlong contest, Apangea representatives reported. Students worked for 7,881 hours and passed 8,718 math lessons, completed 259,038 math word problems and earned a combined total of 7,221,097 Apangea points. That earned the following praise from Apangea, "Awesome!! Give yourself a pat on the back for this great work!"

The teacher of all winning classes will be sent a message in their mail section of their teacher page with the winning Pizza Hut e-gift code during the week of April 2nd.
