// Mu Alpha Theta Today//
What is Mu Alpha Theta? Mu Alpha Theta is the national high school and two-year college Mathematics Honor Society. They are dedicated to making kids enjoy math even though it can get really intense.
Mu Alpha Theta. What’s the point? How does it help? Well, they’re many different reasons on why you should join. If you’re a person who really cares about college,Mu Alpha Theta gives you the chance to get scholarships!! Also when you apply for college or job you’ll get a better chance of getting in the college/job because Mu Alpha Theta will put it on your application form/resemè!!! Another reason why people join is for the money and grants. Yes, I said it money, the thing that people need and fight for. Mu Alpha Theta gives you the chance to win money and other magnificent prizes. The best part is Mu Alpha Theta isn’t your usual boring math class, they do all sorts of fun activities for you to enjoy and learn math at the same time. So come on and try to get in Mu Alpha Theta, there is lots of competition, other people want to join but now you have a reason to get in.
The next important thing is “how to get in”. You need a really good backround if you want to change. So if you were really bad but got a change in heart that might not work. You must have at least 3 semesters of algerbra,2 semesters of geometry or one semester of advanced mathematics (these are high school standers). Apart from the paperwork the last thing you need is a GPA of at least 3.0. Getting in is the hard part but are you ready? You know now how to get in.
After all the nonsense is over it’s not exactly smooth sailing. You forgot about the competitions and practices. The practices are not as bad because luckily you get to do fun activities but the hard part is when you have to do the intensive training. You might also have to tutor somebody who isn’t as high as you. Practices can be fun and intense. Your real challenge is the competitions. It consists of 3 rounds, round one is two topic tests,it’s multiple choice, and you get the choice Circle/Pi/Polygons and Equations/Inequalities which is on the second test. Round two is just like the first round. You can choose Number Theory/Applications. The last round is an individual test of general mathematics (on level topics). Most important, all 15 open answers are to be done in thirty minutes with no caculator. This is the competitions,can you handle it??
