    Mathematically talented and gifted students need to be acquainted with the tools of problem solving and techniques that are the foundations of modern mathematics.
    They need to know what mathematicians today are doing and how valuable their work is to society. In order for such students to be able to compete successfully with their peers nationwide, whether for spots at summer institutes, for acceptance at the college of their choice, for scholarships or ultimately for jobs requiring a thorough background in mathematics; they need the opportunity for individualized mathematical development and learning, enriched by early excursions into the world of college mathematics course offerings, "real world" career exploration and personal association with similarly inclined students.
    Opportunities for leadership, scholarship, and citizenship are provided by Mu Alpha Theta, the national honor society for mathematics in the secondary schools. Students have opportunities to participate in math contests, earn scholarships, and attend state conventions.
