California Mathematics Council


CMC Sections

The California Mathematics Council is divided into three sections that come together to advance the work of math education in the state. Additionally, each section coordinates its own conference featuring world class speakers. Math educators in any corner of the state will find a place to learn new practices, make new professional connections and friendships, or share their own ideas with other thoughtful educators. We look forward to seeing you there. 

The Northern Section serves educators from 34 California counties from the northern border with Oregon down to Monterey, as well as a few counties in Nevada. Their annual conference is held the first weekend of December in Asilomar. 

The Central Section consists of 16 counties: Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, Fresno, Inyo, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Mono, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, Stanislaus, Tulare, and Tuolumne. 


The Central Section annual symposium is held in early March, hosted at different sites throughout the region.

The Southern Section serves educators in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Imperial, and San Diego counties. Their annual conference is held in the first weekend of November in Palm Springs, CA. 

Who is CMC? 

We are you, the 6,000 teachers, administrators, parents, and teacher-educators from California, 45 other states, Canada, Australia, and seven other foreign countries who are committed to improving mathematics learning in the private and public classrooms throughout California, North America, and the world!

All of the work of the Council, with one exception, is done by volunteers. These TK to16 classroom teachers, retired teachers, principals, parents, district superintendents, authors, project managers, college professors, students, and others devote themselves tirelessly to bring you our fall conferences, our award-winning scholarly mathematics quarterly journal, The ComMuniCator, teacher and student awards and activities, and updates on events in Sacramento and Washington which affect the mathematics classroom.
