Mu Alpha Theta
Mu Alpha Theta is a National Mathematics Honor Society encompassing over 65,000 students in more than 1,400 schools. We are dedicated to inspiring keen interest in mathematics, developing strong scholarship in the subject, and promoting the enjoyment of mathematics in high school.
Full Membership, High School Chapter: High school students in grades 9 through 12, at the school where their permanent record resides, who have completed the equivalent of four semesters of college preparatory mathematics and in addition have completed or are enrolled in a still more advanced course, are eligible for full membership providing their mathematical work was done with distinction. On the 4-point grading scale, this shall mean at least a 3.5 grade point average.
Associate Membership: High school students in grades 9 through 12, at the school where their permanent record resides, who have completed two semesters of algebra or the equivalent with distinction and are enrolled in, or have completed, a semester of geometry or of second year algebra, are eligible for associate membership. Associate members do not pay the initiation fee, but should be registered with the national office so that they may attend the National Convention. They are not entitled to vote on national policy, however. They are entitled to attend and be heard at meetings and presumably are likely candidates for full membership.
