What are some clubs and honorary organizations for students interested in math?
There are many student math organizations, including the following:
Mu Alpha Theta—This organization is sponsored by the MAA, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. It is a mathematics club for high school and two-year college students who enjoy mathematical problems, articles, and puzzles. Mu Alpha Theta publishes a journal, The Mathematical Log, and holds regional and national meetings. Web address: http://www.mualphatheta.org/.
Pi Mu Epsilon—This group is an Honorary National Mathematics Society. Its purpose is the promotion of scholarly activities in mathematics among the students in academic institutions, and it has more than 300 chapters at colleges and universities throughout the United States. Web address: http:// www.pme-math.org/.
Kappa Mu Epsilon—This group is also a national mathematics honor society, but is specialized. It was founded in 1931 to promote the interest of mathematics among undergraduate students in the United States, and as of this writing has around 144 chapters and over 75,000 members. It also has an official journal called The Pentagon; the web address is http://www.kappamuepsilon.org/index.php.
Sigma Zeta—This group is a national science and mathematics honor society that encourages and fosters knowledge in the natural and computer sciences, as well as mathematics. You can view their website at http://www.sigmazeta.org/.
In addition to these national honor societies, some colleges and universities offer their own special mathematical groups. For example, the Archimedean Society at Fairleigh-Dickinson University in New Jersey offers support, events, and lectures in mathematics for students interested in the subject.
