BAMO exam is on Tuesday, February 26, 2019. Registration is now closed.
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.
The San Jose Math Circle (SJMC) is a weekly math meeting for middle school and high school students. Around 60 students come each week and are presented with difficult, original and always fun mathematical puzzles. For details on when and where we meet, and who can come, visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. For past and future meetings, see the schedule page, and if you want to know more about our circle, visit the about page.
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.
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.
