Get a mathlete mug for your buddy Beatrix.
A group of mathematically exceptional students who compete against other schools usually in timed rounds and are often Asian. Many people make fun of them, but they're actually pretty cool, especially if their names are Kevin Gnapoor and Cady Heron. Many mathletes max out the math curricula at their respective schools and have to take math courses though PSEO (post secondary enrollment option), which is provided by many school districts at local colleges.
You can't join mathletes. It's social suicide!
