The math club is an organization consisting of students interested in improving their problem solving skills and participating in regional and national math competitions. Meetings are held at least twice a month during activity period.
Some of the competitions include The American Scholastic Mathematics Association Senior Division, the American Mathematics Competition, the Missouri Math League, Excellence in Mathematics Competition, the Continental Math League Competitions, and regional qualifying competitions leading to the state competition held yearly in Columbia.
Students interested in being a part of the math club should watch the bulletin board outside of the math office for meeting dates and/or see a moderator to receive messages via email.
We also sponsor the SLUH Chapter of Mu Alpha Theta. This is a national high school and two-year college mathematics honor society that was formed in 1957. The purpose of this organization is to stimulate interest in mathematics by providing public recognition of superior mathematical scholarship and by promoting various mathematical activities that foster the enjoyment of mathematics. It is co-sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics and the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges. (For more information, visit www.mualphatheta.org.) Juniors and seniors who have completed at least two years of college preparatory mathematics with a grade of a B or better in those courses and who have actively participated in math club meetings and events (to accumulate required points) may become members.
