Wishing you a hearty and relaxing Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Winter is a great time to host a CMC Math Festival at your school!
 
Think about hosting a Math Festival in the winter months before the year becomes hectic! A Math Festival is a powerful, cost-effective way to bring your students, teachers, and families together to experience the Common Core first-hand. 
A hands-on, activity-based Math Festival requires NO EXTRA WORK for teachers or staff—CMC does it all with the assistance of just one of your school’s teacher-leaders. We provide everything you need for a successful school-wide math event. A CMC student Math Festival and/or Family Math Festival will be one of the easiest events your school has ever hosted!
 
All primary, elementary, and middle school students, teachers, and families can actively participate in a Math Festival.
 
We are now booking dates for all of the 2015–2016 school year. If you would like to book a Math Festival for your school, please indicate your first, second, and third choice of dates, and which of our Math Festival programs you wish CMC to host:
