Mu Alpha Theta / Math Team

                                   
 The Mu Alpha Theta Honor Society organization was formed in our school for the purposes of fostering interest, developing strong scholarship, and promoting the enjoyment of mathematics. The society is officially a National High School and a Two-year College Mathematics Honor Society that was formed in 1957 and thus we will follow the general guidelines already set. However, we will, as a Chapter, make independent regulations and activities.
 
 

To Join the Society:     

Students must go through an application process. Students must be eligible to apply to the society. The requirements are as follows:

            Student must have completed Integrated 2

  • Student must have an overall GPA of 3.0 and an overall math GPA of 3.5
  • Student must be currently enrolled in an Honors or above level class.
 Associate members must have all above qualifications except completed Integrated 2.
 

Membership:

Students who are accepted into the Blackman Chapter of Mu Alpha Theta will be required to remain in academic good standing and provide service to others and the chapter. Mu Alpha Theta is an HONOR society and therefore all members are expected to maintain an honorable character at all times. ANY honor-related offense will be grounds for immediate dismissal. Members are expected to participate in the activities of the chapter and uphold the philosophy of the society. These activities include, but are not limited to:

 Meeting Attendance
