PCS Launches Math Honor Society

Fifteen PCS high school students have been inducted into the PCS Chapter of Μu Αlpha Theta (ΜΑΘ) as charter members.

To be eligible for membership, PCS students must excel in mathematics and overall scholarship as evidenced by fulfilling the following requirements:

  • Be in at least the 10th grade and successfully completed Algebra 2 or its equivalent
  • Have completed at least one high school math course as a high school student at Portland Christian
  • Maintain an overall grade point average of at least 3.5
  • Maintain an unweighted mathematics grade point average of at least 3.5
Thirty-one students met the requirements and were invited to join; 15 took up the call and are the official charter class. 

The Mu Alpha Theta National Honor Society was founded in 1957 by Dr. and Mrs. Richard V. Andree at the University of Oklahoma. In Dr. Andree's 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.

It is the goal of the Portland Christian chapter of ΜΑΘ to foster a better understanding and love of mathematics, while students serve their peers, school, and the Lord by helping others in their studies of mathematics.

The students inducted as Portland Christian's ΜΑΘ charter members are:
