The Mu Alpha Theta National High School and Junior College Mathematics Club was founded in 1957 by Dr. and Mrs. Richard V. Andree at the University of Oklahoma. In his words, Mu Alpha Theta is "an organization dedicated to promoting scholarship in mathematics and establishing math as an integral part of high school and junior college education." The name Mu Alpha Theta was constructed from the Greek lettering for the phonemes m, a, and th.
The faculty sponsor for Mu Alpha Theta is Mrs. Winer. Please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to schedule peer tutoring for your Upper School child.
