Math Kangaroo @ ROCO
What is Math Kangaroo?
Math Kangaroo is an annual international mathematical competition for thousands of students in grades 1-12. Math Kangaroo's focus is on improving students' math scores and teaching them new strategies for solving word and logic problems, helping them with critical thinking and gaining confidence in the classroom. The contest was started in Australia in 1980, and brought to Chicago in 1998. Held as an in-person exam every year since 1998, it grew to 31,837 participants in 2019. Due to Covid, it has also been offered online and in 2020, the numbers climbed to a record 35,171 participants. You can learn more about this competition at the Math Kangaroo's website.
