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.
