Mu Alpha Theta Goes for Gold

From Issue 6


On April 10th and 11th, the Jackson Prep Mathletes participated in the Mu Alpha Theta Convention. The math teachers selected students to attend the competition. 9th through 12th  graders students participated in the competition at Hinds Community College.  At 3:00 p.m., all students that were selected took a test in their the math course that they are taking.

After the first round of math tests, some Prep students were able to leave. However, some students had to stay until 9:00 p.m. and wake up the next morning to take more test at 8:20 a.m. In the end, the Prep Mathletes were awarded second place to Madison Central. On attending the convention, Jack Davis said, “I had a lot of fun taking math tests and getting to hang out with all my friends. I am looking forward to attending the Mu Alpha Theta Convention next year.
