Math Kangaroo

 

Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest 2023 promotional flyer-- March 19

The Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest (CMKC) is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization which aims to spread the joy of mathematics. The CMKC Corporation is administered by mathematicians and teachers of mathematics who cooperate with other professionals in order to provide an atmosphere and conditions suitable for motivating students to learn. We love mathematics and share our passion for the wonderful cause of creating a better future with better education for children.

The Contest-Game "Math Kangaroo" originated in France in 1991 and quickly became very popular among students in many European countries. Several years later, the association "Kangourou sans frontieres" was founded and it now organizes the event. The contest's main purpose is to promote mathematical thinking and stimulate an interest in math, by providing students with an opportunity to compare their abilities against the abilities of other students, from different countries around the world. In the past several years, the geography of the participating countries has been extended outside Europe, to USA, Paraguay, Mexico, Canada, etc.
