Prime Factor Math Circle is inviting all students grades 1 and up to participate in Math Kangaroo
Contest!

Math Kangaroo is an international competition in solving
mathematical problems. With more than 50
countries and more than 5,000,000 students taking part in 2012,
it is currently the most popular mathematical contest for
children. Now, Math Kangaroo is finding its way into the United States!

The problems you will find in Math Kangaroo are appropriate for
the students' grade. They require no special math skills beyond
what's learned at school. But they are nothing like the
run-of-the-mill problems the students normally tackle in class. They
are creative and challenging. They require logical reasoning and
out-of-the-box thinking.

To learn more about the competition, you can visit

The participation fee is $20 per student. Each student receives a T-shirt,
a certificate of participation, and a gift in addition to
a competition booklet and a pencil on the test day.

The top 10 national winners and top state winners get extra prizes.

Test samples can be found at Kangaroo US page or at Kangaroo Canada
page.
