Registration for the 2018 Math Kangaroo Olympiad is open. The competition will take place on March 15, 2018. This is the 5th year that CASE will be hosting the competition and it will be held at two Bridgewater State University campuses (Bridgewater and Attleboro). Registration for the competition is now closed.
The Math Kangaroo is a competition for students in grades 1 through 12. The atmosphere is fun and encouraging and all participants receive a T-shirt, pencil, certificate and a toy. The heart of the competition is the 75 minute multiple-choice test. There are 24 questions for students in grades 1 through 4, and 30 for grades 5 and up. The students work independently and their test is scored. In May, gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded, along with grants and other prizes to the top placing participants.
