Math Field Day is an opportunity for Orange County Elementary Schools to join together in promoting excellence in mathematics, team work, achieving goals, and school spirit. 

Math Field Day is an all-day math competition for students in Grade 4, 5, and 6 sponsored by the Orange County Math Council (OCMC).  A school can have only one team (4 team members) per grade level participating.  Most schools hold try-outs and have practice sessions for their teams.

The Math Field Day competition categories are:

Algebraic Thinking
Geometry
Number and Operations
Measurement
Data Analysis

To find out more, please visit the Competition Categories page. Olympic-style medals are awarded to the top 6 teams for each grade level for each category.  All kids get "goodie bags" of prizes from community donations.
