This year, for the first time, Walnut Acres is participating in the 23rd Annual International Math Kangaroo Competition for students in 1st-12th grades. Math Kangaroo's goal is to encourage students to learn mathematics by presenting them with problems that are interesting and by rewarding their efforts.
This year, the competition will take place on Thursday, March 15, 2018. You will soon be able to register online for a $20 fee. Registration will remain open until December 15.. Participants will be invited to practice their math problem-solving skills with parent volunteer leaders over a few Saturdays (to be announced) in preparation for a written, strategy-based math contest held each spring.
On March 15, 2018, students will take an individual math test after school in competition with other students at their grade level from around the world. All participants will earn prizes, enjoy some math fun, and enhance their math skills. For more information, go to www.mathkangaroo.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Walnut Acres parent Chao Yang is coordinating the contest at Walnut Acres. Mr. Yang will host a Math Kangaroo Information Session on Tuesday November 28, at 7:00 p.m. Please join us to learn more about this fun math learning experience.
