Kangaroo

Contest

 

Math Kangaroo Contest

MKC is one of the largest mathematics competitions in the world. The contest was first held in France in 1991 and was named “kangaroo” because the contest format drew from the previously held Australian Mathematics Competition. As MKC became very popular among students, the contest has first spread from France to European countries, and has further expanded to around the world. Now, MKC is coordinated globally by “Association Kangourou Sans Frontières” (AKSF).
