Bangladesh Mathematical Olympiad (BdMO) is an annual mathematical competition arranged for school and college students to nourish their interest and capabilities for mathematics. It has been regularly organized by the Bangladesh Math Olympiad Committee (BdMOC) since 2001. The first Math Olympiad was held in Shahjalal University of Science and Technology.

With the dedicated endeavor of the members of the committee, the daily newspaper Prothom Alo and the Dutch Bangla Bank Limitedf, BdMOC has already achieved its primary goal – to send team in International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). Bangladeshi students have been participating in the International Mathematical Olympiad since 2005.

Besides arranging Divisional and National Math Olympiad, BdMOC always extends its cooperation to all interested groups and personals who want to arrange Math Olympiad. The Bangladesh Math Olympiad and the selection of National Team for IMO is bounded by the set rules by the BdMOC called BdMO Regulations.
