This year, once again, Prime Factor Math Circle invites all students grades 1 and up to participate in the Math Kangaroo USA Competition!

Mathematical Kangaroo is a popular international non-selective mathematics competition for students in grades 1 to 12. It has been organized in the United States for 15 years, and is in its fifth year in Seattle. Math Kangaroo it is currently the most participated scholar math competition worldwide, with more than 40 countries and more than 5,000,000 participants in 2013. 15,000 students participated in the Kangaroo USA last year.

Math Kangaroo emphasizes math reasoning, logic and creative problem-solving. Math Kangaroo helps students develop their skills and reach their potential in math. 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.
