Mu Fest at TZHS

The Tappan Zee High School Mu Alpha Theta Honor Society hosted the annual Mu Fest as a fun and educational send-off before the spring recess!

The student-led celebration, which first began over 25 years ago, features math-inspired games created by Mu Alpha Theta members. Mu Fest 2024 games included Mu Toss, Mu Taboo, Slime Solutions, Mu Memory and Pi in the Face. All high school math classes participate in Mu Fest and donations raised throughout the day support Math Department scholarships for seniors.

Mu Alpha Theta, which is co-advised by TZHS Math teachers Seth Resnikoff and David Marino, is a national honor society that aims to enrich students’ knowledge and enjoyment of mathematics. To be inducted into the TZHS chapter, students must earn a 90 average for three years of high school math (or 95 for two years) as well as complete peer tutoring, service to the school and project work.
