Mu Alpha Theta

Mu Alpha Theta, the mathematics honor society here at WSHS, is the perfect club for students with an interest in mathematics and a fun place for them to meet other students who share their passion. 

Hosted once a month, the club meets virtually via Google Meets to discuss their course of action. The club is sponsored and run by Mr. Bergman and vice-president Varsha Naga Normally, students who join the club get the chance to participate in math competitions including Rocket City Math League and other events hosted by Mu Alpha Theta (the organization). However, due to COVID, the club is unsure about participating in these tournaments this school year. Despite this setback, opportunities to volunteer and express enthusiasm for math are still available. 

Students who join the club are given the option to assist in volunteering with other students who need help with math. Every Tuesday and Thursday free in-person and virtual tutoring is held in Mr. Bergman’s room 7-103 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Members of the club can apply their passion for math by working with other students during these sessions. The assistance these students give will be counted towards their volunteer hours. As of now, volunteering options are only available in-person, but the math department at WSHS is considering allowing online volunteers. 

Graduating members of the club will get to wear the specific cords for the honor society and, in addition, may be eligible for scholarships. Mu Alpha Theta (the organization) offers four $5,000 scholarships to any active member in their senior year of high school. 

The club is open to high school students enrolled in honors, AP, or IB level math courses with a maintained B average and GPA of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale. For more information about the club contact Mr. Bergman at [email protected]
