Kangaroo Mathematics Olympics

Students of our Academy together with almost six million students from 40 countries, and more than 6,000 students from the USA participated in this year’s international mathematics Olympics -Kangaroo. Participation in such events not only increases mathematical knowledge but creates interaction among students with the same interests, personal satisfaction from achievements and promotes self-motivation.  
The test was held at the same time all over the world.  Ours was held at the Korean Center in Queens at 6:30pm.  The test took 75 minutes and the mathematical problems varied in difficulty.  Calculators were not permitted.  At the end of the test, children were given a T-shirt and a certificate of participation.  Prizes for winners also varied from free participation in international mathematics camps, with the highest scoring students receiving scholarships.
