The Berkeley Math Circle


For BMC Upper (grade 5th-12th)

Reserve emails only for emergencies, not convenience.

  • Questions can be answered in office hours during the math circle (Tuesdays, 5:15-5:45pm; 6:15-7:45pm) in person at Evans 714.
  • Please remember, emergencies are not caused by the lack of organization, preparation, or diligence.
  • Between 5:45-6:15pm: this is the time when we prepare the classrooms and the materials for the circle. This is our priority. We will not answer any administrative questions during this time frame.

At the circle, we direct most resources to the academic quality of the program. Therefore, we expect participants and families to be organized and respect our minimal admin staff's workload. When you have important questions, you need to invest the time and effort in coming to office to have them answered. Most questions can be answered through the information posted here on this website.

DO NOT send email inquiries about your application status. You will be contacted via email when your application is processed.
