Recycling Project – Mu Alpha Theta invites you to recycle used printer cartridges and cell phones*. Bring them to Mu Alpha Theta Recycling Center in the Math, Science, Engineering, and Technology Center hallway outside the MT123 Math Zone lab. Proceeds are used for math scholarships for area students.
*Donors, please clear the memory on your cell phone of any private information before donating. Also ensure that the service on the donated phone has been disconnected to prevent fraudulent use. MAθ will not be responsible for any information left stored in the memories of phones donated or for their fraudulent use.
Shadowing Project (since 2012) – Any student who is an education major has the opportunity to observe (or shadow) the teaching process in a personal way by working alongside a current mathematics tutor. For example, as the mathematics tutor provides individual instruction to a student, the education major will observe the teaching-learning process. Any current student majoring in education (K-12) may participate in the program. To learn more about Mu Alpha Theta's Shadowing Project or to schedule a shadowing appointment, email mualphatheta@nacc.edu.
