Mu Alpha Theta Math Honor Society

The Mu Alpha Theta is the National High School and Two-Year College Mathematics Honor Society. The purpose of Mu Alpha Theta is to promote a keener interest in mathematics, to develop sound scholarship in the subject and promote enjoyment of mathematics among high school and two-year college students. The chapters are dedicated to inspiring interest and developing strong scholarship in mathematics and promoting the enjoyment of mathematics in high school. Students in grades 9 through 12 who have completed two courses of college preparatory mathematics, including algebra II and geometry, and who have completed or are enrolled in a still more advanced course are eligible for membership in Mu Theta Alpha. Additionally the work in mathematics must be done with distinction. Members participate in national mathematics competitions, provide lessons to younger students and the community with a focus on showcasing mathematics as an enjoyable endeavor, and provide tutoring to students in the high school.
