Mu Alpha Theta is the national high school and two-year college mathematics honor society with over 88,000 student members in more than 1,800 schools, according to the organization. The society is dedicated to inspiring interest in mathematics, developing strong scholarship in the subject and promoting the enjoyment of mathematics in high school and two-year college students.
