We have been holding BMC sessions in Fall 2020 online during the closure of UCB campus. BMC sessions in the Spring 2021 will also be held online, unless UCB campus allows for in-person classes, and it is feasible to move the math circles sessions back to campus. Online sessions will be recorded, whenever feasible and agreeable with the instructor, and posted for viewing to BMC families. 



We are no longer accepting students for MTRW in Spring 2021.
