Mu Alpha Theta is the National High School and Two-Year College Mathematics Honor Society with 93,300 student members in June 2012 in more than 1950 schools . The Mu Alpha Theta National High School and Junior College Mathematics Club was founded in 1957 by Dr. and Mrs. Richard V. Andree at the University of Oklahoma.
Mu Alpha Theta achieves these goals by:
- Providing a method for schools to recognize and encourage those students who enjoy and excel in mathematics.
- Organizing a national convention for students and teachers to participate in math-related events and interact with others from across the country.
- Rewarding outstanding extracurricular achievement by offering special awards to both students and their faculty advisors.
- Providing mathematics competitions to participating members at their own school through the Log 1 Contest, the Rocket City Math League, and the Mathematical Minutes Video Contest.

Georgian-American High School is the first and only school in the Caucasus Region who is an official Chapter of Mu Alpha Theta from 2005. The enables the students of our school to become members of this society, use the materials offered for additional learning and also participate in different competitions expressing their knowledge. Our school has been especially successful in Log 1 contest, every year since 2005, Georgian-American High School has earned a place in the best few as a school and individuals students as well.
The Log 1 Contest provides an excellent opportunity for a school to participate in a competition similar to our National Convention contests and compete against schools from across the country and the world. The Log 1contest consists of three testing rounds. The first round includes two
Topic Tests. Students may take either the \”Logs & Exponents\” or the \”Matrices\” Test. The second round includes a second set of Topic Tests. Students may either take the \”Sequences & Series\” or the \”Geometry\” Test. The third round will be an Individual Test of general mathematics on level appropriate topics. All tests will be 15 open answer questions to be completed in 30 minutes without the use of a calculator. Each student test score will be scaled to account for varying test difficulty.
Mathematical Minutes Video Contest.
Mu Alpha Theta is continuing its Presentation Contest under a new name, the Mathematical Minutes Video Contest, beginning this school year (2012-2013). The contest asks members to create educational and entertaining videos. Get together with a few friends from your math club, pick a math topic, and create a fun, five-minute, informative video.Videos should not exceed 5 minutes in length. Videos should teach a lesson in an interesting or innovative way. Audio must be understandable. Images must be clear and relevant to the topic.
