You don't calculate. You just play. He said it was hidden.

They approximate it. You can't really know your MMR, but you can estimate it based on the "strength" of your opponents, your wins and losses, league placement, etc

For example. If I'm in Silver League, but I'm playing lots of Bronze players (and losing), I can assume my MMR is "lower" than it should be. But if I'm in Gold and I'm winning against Platinum players, my MMR is "high."

However, I do believe there was a thread on either Battle.net or TL.net where some guy had a detailed thread on how to calculate an approximation of your MMR based on your bonus pool, league rank, games played, and such. The number you got would tell you if you were due for a promotion soon, etc
