Harvard MIT Mathematics Tournament

Categories:Mathematics, STEM

Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

Founded in 1998, the Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament (HMMT) is one of the largest and most prestigious high school competitions in the world. Each tournament draws close to 1000 students from around the globe, including top scorers at national and international olympiads. HMMT is entirely student-organized, by students at Harvard, MIT, and nearby schools, many of whom are HMMT alumni themselves.

The HHMT is held in two tournaments, one in November and one in February each year. The major events of each tournament include individual tests, the team round, and the guts round. In addition, the Friday night before each tournament features optional social events, including dinner and ice cream. While the November and February tournaments follow similar formats, they have many important distinctions. Both tournaments feature individual tests, a team round, and our signature guts round. The testing formats differ slightly between the two tournaments. Students may not use books, notes, calculators, pocket organizers, slide-rules, abaci, or any other computational aids on any HMMT event. 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.

Tournaments have complex evaluation criteria to determine scoring for teams through multiple rounds of the competition. View the competition website for a complete rubric of scoring criteria.

Entry Fee: $80

Eligibility:
Both of our competitions are intended for high school students, but in rare cases, exceptionally strong middle school students have competed at our tournaments. Due to space concerns, we will unfortunately be unable to accommodate every team and individual who applies. No student may attend both the November and February tournaments. Most students compete in teams of 4-6 (November) and 6-8 (February). As of Fall 2017, all members of a team must be from a well-defined geographic region which must be contiguous and must not intersect another region: regions can be as small as a single school or as large as a collection of states. Due to space concerns, no organization may send more than 5 teams to the November tournament, or more than 3 teams to the February tournament. Students may also apply to participate as affiliated (i.e. affiliated to a competing organization) or unaffiliated individuals, who participate officially in the individual rounds and on unofficial teams (formed day-of) in the team and guts rounds. A full team is considered as 6 students for November's tournament and 8 students for February's tournament. The scoring system for teams aggregates the sum of the individual scores, team round score, and guts score. Thus, it is advantageous to have a full team.
