Welcome to CMC!

Our Mission

The California Mathematics Council (CMC) believes that all students have the capacity to become mathematically competent and confident when provided a rigorous and challenging mathematical program supported by high expectations.

The California Mathematics Council is committed to:

  • promoting professional activities that will ensure continual improvement towards excellence in the teaching of mathematics;
  • communicating with educators, parents, the public, and legislative bodies concerning issues related to teaching rigorous, challenging mathematics; and
  • increasing the diversity of membership of the California Mathematics Council and the diversity of leadership in mathematics education at the local, state, and national levels.

 CMC's Statement of Anti-Racism

To our community of mathematics educators:

The deaths of  George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery are tragic and horrific reminders of the systemic racism that exists in our society. All that we see, our children see as well. As educators, we carry a moral imperative to do whatever we can to educate ourselves and to educate future generations to be better than us, and ensure that the arc of the moral universe continues to bend towards equity and justice. 

CMC believes in the mathematics potential of all students, but belief is not enough. As a community, we must actively engage in brave and courageous conversations about anti-racism and commit to anti-racist practices, pedagogies, and work. We need to deepen our awareness of students’ experiences and leverage trauma-informed practices to support the complete development of each and every young person. In order for CMC to strive towards its mission, schools must be places that are safe for all students. This means rooting out all forms of institutional violence, particularly those policies that, whether by intent or practice, inflict disproportionate harm on any group.
