Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Mu Alpha Theta Educational Foundation hopes to provide support for our talented members, the teachers who serve as chapter sponsors, and the math clubs themselves.

We hope to honor talented math students and support their educational development by providing financial support.

We try to also support the teachers that run Mu Alpha Theta chapters and financially support activities of those chapters.

Through our summer National Convention, we provide an environment where math loving students can enjoy the company of other like-minded individuals. Our scholarships help to financially support talented graduates as they pursue their chosen field in college. Grants provide support to chapters who attend the convention. Financial awards support teachers who attend and other teachers for their hard work as a chapter sponsor.

The Educational Foundation provides a method for schools to recognize and encourage those students who enjoy and excel in mathematics. We provide honor cords and cap tassels for graduates. Students donate $5 each for these items, thus providing funding for our scholarships and to support our summer convention.

Many of our former members have enjoyed mathematics so much that they decide to go into teaching mathematics. These enthusiastic teachers, who think math is fun, make all the difference in their classroom for their students. Our greatest success is when our former members become a Mu Alpha Theta sponsor so their students can learn to enjoy math as they did.
