Tournament of Towns in Toronto

Math Kangaroo
History


The Contest-Game "Math Kangaroo" was originated in France in 1991 and quickly became famous in Europe. Several years later the International Association "Kangourou sans frontières" had been founded. With each passing year the popularity of the competition continues to grow attracting new cities and new countries.

In October 2006, Canada became a member of the International Association "Kangourou sans frontières". Valeria Pandelieva, mathematician and educator from Ottawa, was chosen to be the President of the Math Kangaroo Association in Canada.

The first time in Toronto the contest was conducted in 2006. Now in Canada the Math Kangaroo is conducted in seven cities: Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton, St. John's, Montreal, Calgary, and Winnipeg.
