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).
Magic Square Association (MSA) is the official organiser of MKC in Hong Kong as well as Macau. MSA aims to promote the mathematical education in Hong Kong and Macau, which also organises American Mathematics Competition (AMC).
