Welcome to York University's Math Kangaroo Website! Since 2016, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at York University has hosted the Math Kangaroo Contest, which is held in March of every year. This contest encourages the fun and creativity behind mathematics at an early age. York will not be hosting an in-person Kangaroo contest for 2021. Details of a potential online test will be noted on the National Kangaroo Contest website (https://mathkangaroo.ca/en) in due time.
Complementing the Kangaroo Math contest, we will have learning sessions leading up to the date of the contest in March.* These learning sessions are an opportunity to expose and inspire young minds to the ingenuity, logic, and beauty behind mathematics in a dynamic and carefree learning environment. Anyone who plans on writing the contest in March are welcome to register for these sessions; however, there is no requirement to register for the contest in order to attend our learning sessions. Parents are not expected to attend the learning sessions with their children. There is currently NO fee associated to the learning sessions.
*Due to the pandemic, there will be no 2021 learning sessions available.
