How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
In addition to what @IvyLeagueGirl said, I'd recommend participating in AMC competitions and possibly even getting up to AIME level (that would help a lot with elite college admissions).
You could start a math club at your high school, or do multivariable calculus/diff eq/linear algebra at a local community college or nearby state university.
Also if you are interested in applications of mathematics, you could possibly do a research project to enter into a local or regional science fair. Here are some projects from California for inspiration: csef.usc.edu
Definitely try joining your school MathCounts club. Do lots of math competitions and see if you score high in one of them. You could tutor or virtually tutor young kids on basic math. You could join Art of Problem Solving. Look it up. You could participate in a summer program related to math. Join Math Olympiad. The opportunities are endless.
