California Mathematics Council Community Colleges 
Information for Students 

CMC3 is all about the enjoyment and learning of mathematics and has much to offer students. The two conferences,held in December in Monterey and in April in Lake Tahoe, welcome students. Any full time community college math student can come to the conference to listen to invited speakers present what they know about mathematics and mathematics teaching. The conference cost for students is just $5.00.  Students who want to have lunch at the conference will be charged extra.

There are two special opportunities for students for the upcoming conference at Lake Tahoe.

Student Mathematics Speaker at the Tahoe Conference

CMC3 will honor one student who has investigated a topic or application of mathematics. The selected student will come to the CMC3 Recreational Mathematics Conference and give a 20 minute presentation on the student's work. Thanks to Debra Landre, instructor at San Joaquin Delta College, who has sponsored an award of $500 for the selected student. Students must have a Community College math faculty member serve as mentor. Interested students can contact Larry Green at for more information.  Students can fill out their online application at the  callForStudentProposal online application.

Receive College Credit for Attending the Tahoe Conference

Students enroll in Lake Tahoe Community College's MAT 119 (Topics in Applied Mathematic) and receive half a unit of college credit.  Students attend the talks at the conference and then provide a brief synopsis of the talks that they attended.  Interested students can contact Larry Green at for more information.  Registration for the course can be completed online at Lake Tahoe Community College's registration page

Student Poster Session at the Monterey Conference

CMC3 encourages students to submit a poster displaying their original work for our annual poster session.  Posters can involve any level of mathematics that extends the usual curricula (no book problems!).  Independent study or modeling problems are encouraged.  There is no fee to enter and the student gets free conference registration

First place prize is $100 and second place is $50.  Students must have a current CMC3 faculty member who will attend the conference agree to sponsor them.  Students can contact Jennifer Carlin-Goldberg at for more information.  The online application opens late August - early September and closes the Friday after Thanksgiving.  Click here to apply.
