Celebrate Mathematics this Spring with a CMC Math Festival!
Let all of your K-8 students and their families experience hands-on activities that reflect the new CA Mathematics Standards.
April, May and June are great months to host a Math Festival since it requires NO EXTRA WORK for your teachers or staff and students are out of class for only one hour. With the assistance of just one of your teacher-leaders, CMC does it all and provides everything for a successful school-wide math event. A Math Festival will be the easiest event your school has ever hosted!
