About Us


General Information

The Berkeley Math Tournament Group is an organization founded at the University of California-Berkeley. A student run-organization founded in the early 2010's, the Berkeley Math Tournament and Berkeley mini-Math Tournament gather students from the Bay Area and elsewhere to celebrate mathematics and the spirit of mathematical competiiton.

Goals

The Berkeley Math Tournament Group hosts and organizes mathematical contests for middle and high school students. In organizing these tournaments, the team strives to encourage mathematical exploration and understanding by introducing concepts not covered in the typical pre-college curricula to students with high mathematical aptitude and interest. Each contest emphasizes collaboration between team members, while still allowing individuals to prove their own ability. Any individual currently enrolled in a pre-college institute for youth is welcome to compete, and accommodations may be made for teams with demonstrated financial need.

History

The organization was founded in 2012 by Henry Matlby and other students at UC Berkeley and has persisted for seven years since its initiation. At the time only one-hundred students showed up to a relatively small math competiiton. Today however, we have around three hundred and fifty participatns for BmMT and five hundred for BMT including olympiad level mathletes.

People

Organizing a math tournament requires many talents, and our team has the fortune of including many people from diverse backgrounds. We are constantly growing, and if you would like to get involved, please contact us at berkeleymt@gmail.com.

Special Thanks

We are indebted to the faculty and staff of UC Berkeley's departments of Mathematics and EECS, and in particular, Professors Claire Tomlin, Lauren Williams, Arthur Ogus, and Kenneth Ribet. Additionally, thanks to Innovative Design for helping us come up with our new logo!
