Coaches can sign up for an account with BMT first. Then, after signing up, they can view their portal which will contain information about current tournament signups and previous tournaments that they have attended. They may register teams in any of the current active tournaments during the time period between when registration opens, and the late registration deadline. Coaches may register up to 6 people per team .
Once registered, coaches must pay for each team through the portal by the normal registration deadline, March 23, 2019 , to be considered fully registered and in order to recieve their T-shirts. If they pay afterwards, they will automatically be charged the late registration fee. If they cannot make the late registration deadline, March 30, 2019 and would still like to come to the tournament, they must pay the day of tournament fee during tournament check in.
Once coaches have paid for a team, their ability to edit said team will be limited to basic team information, substitutions and focus round changes only. Any other changes that are to be made, must be made on the day of the tournament, potentially for extra charge, or by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This semester we will not be offering a lunch purchase option through BMT, due to unpopularity and logistical concerns. There will be enough time for students to eat lunch during the provided lunch break. For a list of local restaurants see here.
Breakfast, however will be provided and is included in the registration fee.
Each student must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver for them to come to BMT. There is a waiver upload portal as a part of the registration portal that coaches can access. Uploading waivers is the easiest way to deal with students on our end, but coaches may also bring waivers to the tournament to submit. To view the waiver form click here. For the activity, please put BMT 2019 and for the RSO tag, put "Math Tournament At Berkeley".
Graph paper and calculators are prohibited, but protractors and compasses are
permitted. Blank white scratch paper will be provided for all participants.
All answers must be exact, reduced, and simplified. For more information, please
- We will not grade answers we cannot read.
We have a zero tolerance cheating policy, and failure to comply with all rules may
result in immediate and irreversible disqualification.
Scores and Awards
Final team scores are calculated by a linear combination of focus,
team, and power results, with their respective weights noted below.
- Focus: 25%
- Individual: 25%
- Team: 20%
- Power: 30%
Each exam's scores are divided by the average of the top 10 scores before
overall team score calculations (for normalization purposes), and for individual exams (including the focus rounds),
teams with fewer than six scores will have the missing scores counted as scores of 0 .
The teams with the top 8 overall scores will receive recognition and prizes.
The top 5 scorers on the individual round and the top 3 individuals from each
focus round will also receive awards, with ARML-style tiebreakers used in the
event of a tie. The top finishers at BMT will qualify for the USMCA national championship.
See the USMCA website for more information.
