The Berkeley Math Circle

Calendar

Regarding Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters:

  • The BMC Fall 2020 semester will be held entirely online.
  • The BMC calendar for the Spring 2021 semester listed below assumes sessions will be held online. When UC Berkeley re-opens and students are permitted to return to campus, we will switch to in-person BMC sessions. Some groups -- e.g., Advanced -- may possibly still be held online. We will inform families of the mode of  Spring 2021 sessions in due time.

BMC sessions are held on Wednesdays at UC Berkeley (or online):
