The Berkeley Math Tournament (BMT) is a high school math competition hosted by Berkeley. It is a team competition, with each team having up to 6 participants.


There are three rounds in the tournament. In the Focus Round, each individual selects 2 of the 5 tests and works on the problems. Solvers have 1 hour to solve 10 problems in each test. Tiebreaker rounds may be used in the Focus Round. In the Team Round, team members work together to solve 15 problems in 40 minutes. Finally, in the Power Round, members write solutions to themed problems in 1 hour.

All problems are free response, and legible writing is needed. All answers must be exact and simplified. Also, calculators and graph paper are not allowed in the competition.

In addition to the competition, members can also attend talks and participate in other activities held by Berkeley.


The Focus Round has five tests, each on a different category:

  • Algebra
  • Calculus
  • Combinatorics
  • Geometry
  • Number Theory
