Frequently Asked Questions

  • Step 1: Find some teammates at your school! They can be students from your math club, friends, or any schoolmates who are interested. Just make sure that you have at most five people for a BmMT team or six people for a BMT team.
  • Step 2: Get an adult to coach! You could also ask your math club advisor, a teacher, or any willing parent.
  • Step 3: Once you find a coach, send them to our website. There, your coach will be able to create an account and register your team.
  • Step 4: Show up with your team by the time registration begins on the day of the tournament and have your coach check in everyone.
  • Step 5: Have fun!

You have two options:

  • Driving: From Highway 80, take the University Ave exit towards UC Berkeley.
  • Public transport: If you are from the peninsula, please note that CalTrain does not run early enough to arrive on time. The campus is BART accessible via the Downtown Berkeley station. Students are discouraged from traveling alone on public transportation, as navigating from the BART station to campus can be tricky.

Ideally you would stay with a friend in Berkeley. If you do not know any current students, we highly recommend the Downtown Berkeley Inn, which is relatively close to campus. Unfortunately, we cannot provide lodging for any teams (no exceptions).
