The umbrella organization in the US that acts as a public voice in promoting mathematics for all students is the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).  The mission of NCTM is to be a national public voice of mathematics education, providing vision, leadership, and professional development to support teachers in ensuring equitable mathematics learning of the highest quality for all students.  

The California Math Council (CMC) is an affiliate mathematics organization to the NCTM. The CMC is committed to improving mathematics learning in the private and public classrooms throughout California, North America and the world!  As an affiliate of NCTM, CMC is involved at the state level to ensure teachers, administrators, parents and teacher-educators in California a voice in Sacramento. CMC works tirelessly to present conferences, communicate through written articles, and keep members updated on current events which affect math classrooms

CMC is divided into 3 sections:  North, Central, and South.  Orange County Math Council (OCMC) is an affiliate under CMC-South (CMC-S).  The Orange County Math Council is a local organization whose purpose is improving the teaching of mathematics in all education institutions in Orange County.  We offer support for teachers and administrators through our annual OCMC Symposium, as well as two dinner events featuring local and nationally-known speakers.  The OCMC as sponsors a county-wide Math Field Day competition event for Orange County students in Grades 4-6.  We are also active in supporting the CMC-South at the annual Math Conference in Palm Springs. Please consider becoming more involved in OCMC – together we can make a difference for teachers and students in Orange County mathematics education!
