Math Kangaroo

The Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest (CMKC) is a not-for-profit organization which aims to spread the joy of mathematics. The contest's main purpose is to promote mathematical thinking and stimulate an interest in math, by providing students with an opportunity to compare their abilities against the abilities of other students, from different countries around the world. In the past several years, the geography of the participating countries has been extended outside Europe, to USA, Paraguay, Mexico, Canada, etc. Over six million students and hundreds of mathematicians from over 70 countries played the game, world-wide.

Math League

Math League Contests give students an educationally enriching opportunity to participate in an academically-oriented activity and to gain recognition for mathematical achievement. Our main goal is educational: we promote enjoyment and study of mathematics by organizing contests for grades 4-12. Our contests help to enrich mathematics programs. Each contest covers topics appropriate to the contest grade level.
