MU ALPHA THETA (Math Team)  has several academic options.  The newest  option is the MATH MODELING club which uses math to solve real world problems.  This is a team effort of juniors or seniors who compete annually in February/March in teams of 3 to 5 people.  Scholarships totally $100,000 are awarded annually.  The recreational MAΘ team  is a National Math Honor Society.  High school students in Geometry or higher  may participate. Besides competing individually this team hosts the MATH IS AMAZING!  Championships which will be Saturday, January 19, 2019.This is a student-led math group that encourages having fun with math!  We think you will like it a lot!  Come to room 201 to find out more!  Everyone is welcome!  Bring a friend with you!  There is an opportunity to learn about bases, number systems, conic sections, number theory and more!
