Math Kangaroo Competition
March 19 2020, Local Math Kangaroo centers
Registration is open at Math Kangaroo website
Cost: $20 per student


Math Kangaroo is a popular international non-selective mathematics competition for students in grades 1 to 12.
It emphasizes math reasoning, logic and creative problem-solving, and helps students develop their skills and reach their potential in math. The problems you will find in Math Kangaroo 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.

The contest can be taken in any local center. Prime Factor runs several centers on Eastside: in Issaquah (Pasific Cascade Middle), Kikland (LWIT), and Redmond (Overlake Office)

Registration is at Math Kangaroo Registration Portal

Math Festivals

Logic Land Math Festival 2019
Sunday, November 10th, 1:00 to 4:00 PM
Bellevue College, Building C, Cafeteria
3000 Landerholm Cir SE Bellevue WA98077


We invite all young students, who like mathematics and share a passion for games, problem-solving, and hands-on math activities, to come to our Festival. The Spring Math Festival is an event for an entire family that brings together kids, parents and math enthusiasts for a fun and interactive exploration of recreational mathematics.

At the Festival, the children (ages 5-12) and their parents can:

  • play games and solve puzzles
  • solve tricky problems
  • explore hands-on math demonstrations
  • build and construct with blocks, shapes, and paper
  • make geometric toys, such as Mobius strips and flexagons
  • encode and decode secret messages
  • and engage in many more fun math activities

Our Festival is designed for learning and playing with mathematics in a self-guided environment. There are no classes, teachers or time limits. Instead, kids and adults work together at 20+ math stations, with each station dedicated to a specific activity. During the Festival, kids visit a variety of stations, choosing topics that are interesting to them and working at each station at their own pace.

We have a great team of volunteers, both adults and high-school students, who are happy to problem-solve, build, and play for three hours straight. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Festival!
