Do you like problem solving? Enjoy competition?
The Bay Area Mathematics Olympiad (BAMO) is the first step on the road to competing in the national and international olympics of mathematics. There are two levels of tests: BAMO-8 for students 8th grade and under and BAMO-12 for students 12th grade and under. The test will take place February 26 from 4:00pm to 9:00pm on the SJSU campus.
Space is limited; current and former students of San Jose Math Circle will be given top priority for reserving seats. We will send out e-mail confirmations by February 20. There are other sites in the Bay Area to take BAMO.
See the BAMO website: http://www.bamo.org to learn more about the BAMO and to read questions and solutions from prior years. It is best to spend some time practicing for this competition and learning in advance what is expected. You will have a much better experience if you are prepared.
Math Summer Programs
San Jose Math Circle does not offer a summer program, but around the U.S. there are many great math summer camps. The best summer programs usually have an application process and are selective.
- MathPath is a famous summer camp for students age 11-14 (see: http://mathpath.org). MathPath is already accepting applications for summer 2019; they have a “rolling admissions” process.
- Canada/USA math camp for high schoolers: (see: http://www.mathcamp.org)
- AwesomeMath (see: http://www.awesomemath.org/summer-program/overview/location-dates/)
- Berkeley Math Circle summer program (see: http://mathcircle.berkeley.edu)
- AlphaStar Academy (prep. for contests, see: https://alphastar.academy)
- Idea Math in Cupertino is for students in grades 6-12. (see: http://www.ideamath.org/summerprog.htm)
- Stanford Pre-collegiate Summer Institutes has some math and logic courses (see https://summerinstitutes.stanford.edu)
- Stanford Logic is Fundamental High School Summer Camp (see http://intrologic.stanford.edu/summercamp/)
According to our records, we have now sent e-mail responses to everyone who applied for admission for the 2018-2019 academic year.
If you applied and have not received a response, please let us know by sending us an e-mail.
This year we had twice as many students apply to our Intermediate class as we had room for. This forced us to turn away many qualified students. If you have any questions please let us know and we will respond as best we can.
