To be eligible for Mu Alpha Theta, students must be seniors, must meet grade requirements for their honors level mathematics courses as well as an overall GPA requirement, and may not have earned any honors strikes within 12 months of induction.
“It was a true pleasure and privilege to have lunch with and induct these fourteen seniors, who represent the best and brightest math students in the Class of 2017,” said Upper School Math Department Head Marcia Wexler 1760. “They are incredibly deserving and I will miss their sharp minds and wit when they graduate.”
Students, parents, and teachers also were delighted to hear from well-known physicist, teacher, and writer Kenneth Ford, who was a part-time teacher at GA from 1995-1998 and served as the keynote speaker for event. SEE MR. FORD’S IMPRESSIVE RESUME!
