Math Kangaroo - Level 1 & 2
Math Kangaroo Introduction
The Math Kangaroo Competition is an international mathematical competition where over 50 countries are represented. There are twelve levels of participation, ranging from grade 1 to grade 12. The key competence tested by Mathematical Kangaroo is logical combination, not just pure knowledge of formulas. It is also the largest competition for school students in the world, with over 5,000,000 participants.
There are 6 tests each mapping 2 grade levels:
- Level 1 & 2 - For students in grades 1 and 2.
- Level 3 & 4 - For students in grades 3 and 4.
- Level 5 & 6 - For students in grades 5 and 6.
- Level 7 & 8 - For students in grades 7 and 8.
- Level 9 & 10 - For students in grades 9 and 10.
- Level 11 & 12 - For students in grades 11 and 12.
This means that a student in let's say grade 3 will take the same test (level 3 & 4) as the student in grade 4. The test results are however based on individual grade level
