Creative Adventures in Mathematics


CAM (Chi Alpha Mu) is a club for math enthusiasts in 8th and 9th grade. The PFTSTA Chapter of Chi Alpha Mu was granted its charter in Fall 2014. The goal of Chi Alpha Mu is to encourage all Taylor students to improve their mathematical abilities, appreciate the power of mathematics, and enjoy the beauty of mathematics. Students in 8th and 9th grades can join CAM if they have a 3.5 average in their previous Math courses and are currently enrolled in Algebra I or Geometry. They must be recommended by a Taylor mathematics teacher. Chi Alpha Mu students attend Mu Alpha Theta general meetings and participate in the mathematics activities and competitions. The expectation is that Chi Alpha Mu members join Mu Alpha Theta once they are eligible.
