The Orange County Math Circle was founded in 2007 dedicates their time to improving the math culture in our community. Through tournaments, math clubs, AMC events, publications and other service initiatives, we bring math resources accessible to all regardless of race, gender and socio-economic backgrounds. Our mission is to improve the Southern California community by inspiring and sustaining mathematics interest in youths of all backgrounds.
How much time commitment does OCMC require?
Completely up to you! General volunteers may come a couple hours a month, while more dedicated volunteers may contribute more than that. What you make out of the Orange County Math Circle experience is completely up to you.
How do I pickup my AMC awards?
You can pick up your AMC 8, AMC 10/12, or AIME awards at tournaments or during Open House. There will also be various opportunities throughout the year to pick them up.
Once OCMC receives the awards from the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) there will be a period of one to two weeks where we will hand them out at the Ardent Academy Northwood location, 820 Roosevelt, Irvine CA.
How old does my child have to be to take OCMC classes or attend tournaments?
OCMC has four math clubs that offer classes to a variety of age groups. From the Elementary School Math Club, which serves 4th through 6th grade students, to the High School Math Club which caters to 9th to 12th grade students, OCMC serves students of all ages.

What is the Orange County Math Circle?
The Orange County Math Circle is a completely student-run, non-profit service organization that aims to better the education of youths all throughout Orange County through mathematical education of the underprivileged and underserved. We help students and participants explore complex mathematical theorems and concepts through three annual tournaments and a variety of classes offered to elementary through high school students, all completely free of charge.
By integrating learning and teaching, students take part in serving the community in strengthening math culture and making resources accessible to all who want to learn.
