Mu Alpha Theta is the national high school math honor society. FAMAT is the Florida Association of Mu Alpha Theta, and it sponsors regional and statewide competitions, in addition to a yearly State Convention. We also have a national convention every year. The divisions are: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-calculus, Stats, and Calculus. There are two types of competitions: statewide and regionals. What is MAO?
You will be required to take a 60 minute test that consists of 30 questions. If you were selected to be on the Algebra II Team, you will also participate in the team round. During team round, you will have 4 minutes to solve a question with your teammates. Points are awarded based on what minute you turn your answer in. What do you do at a competition?
This is our new Hillsborough mao website. We have a point system this year. You can receive points for attending practices, going to competitions, taking practice tests, etc. You must earn 35 points to qualify to go to states. Announcements can also be found on our facebook page (HHS Mu Alpha Theta) www.hhsmao.com
Competitions start in the second semester, but you will definitely have to start preparing now if you wish to be competitive. We also have in-school tests, such as Math League and Log 1, throughout the school year The AMC 10/12 will also be held in our school (February-ish). This nation-wide rigorous test is challenging, and if you do well, you could qualify for the *extremely extremely difficult* AIME (another test). When do competitions start?
