    BMC Summer Program

    • Date: June 15- June 26, 2020, Monday-Friday
    • Time: 9:00am-12:00pm
    • Location: UC Berkeley campus (exact rooms to be announced in June)
    • Description: The BMC Summer Program is an intensive two-week math program where students will participate for three hours a day in math sessions and also have daily homework for practice. Enrolling in another summer camp at the same time as the BMC Summer Program is strongly discouraged, as students will NOT have enough time to absorb the material from the three math classes and write their three daily HWs, and hence will lag behind their classmates. Some families did not take this seriously and enrolled their children in afternoon camps or afternoon/evening classes elsewhere, and found out within a couple of days that the child had to drop the other program in order to keep up with the BMC program. The BMC Summer Program is a hybrid between the Berkeley Math Circle and the Math Taught the Right Way programs (in each Beginners, Intermediate I, and Intermediate II group). The Advanced group over the summer will enjoy an intensive Berkeley Math Circle experience. 
    • How to apply: The application link, along with all application information, can be found hereThe selection process is based on merit and mathematical maturity, as well as a first-come-first-serve basis. You need to fill in the application and send us a correct check. Until we receive both, the student cannot be considered among the applicants.
