In 1998, HMMT was founded jointly by Harvard and MIT students to provide middle and high school students with math problems beyond the scope of what is traditionally offered at their schools. Now, with two annual tournaments, hundreds of staff members and volunteers, and over 20 years of experience, we have expanded into one of the largest undergraduate-run math tournaments, hosting thousands of participants from around the globe. Although we have grown, our mission remains the same: to encourage interest in math, to engage a diverse community of students and support them in reaching beyond traditional math curriculums, and to provide insight into what a future in math may look like.
November and February tournaments held annually
High school students
You may not use books, notes, calculators, pocket organizers, slide-rules, abaci, or any other computational aids. Similarly you may not use graph paper, rulers, protractors, compasses, architectural tools, or any other drawing aids. In addition, communication devices such as laptops, PDAs, and cell phones are prohibited.
At the moment, there are no fees for participating in HMMT. We do not accept "donations" or other forms of financial support in exchange for seats at the tournament.
