Right now stars just signal and track your proficiency across topics in the Practice math section . They are not worth points. The rationale behind that is that the practice section is meant to include problems that are more straightforward, than most of the weekly challenges problems. Additionally, anyone can get answers instantly to any question in the practice section. For now, the star is the unit of accomplishment in the "practice" section. We may change it in the future to a metric that gives you better information about yourself, but for now stars are what track for yourself and communicate to others which topics you have worked on and how far you have progressed.

Nothing. They are merely a ranking/achievement token. They are just like the points, except with no points exchange.
