EXPLORING
MATH KANGAROO
TARGET AGES 68
GRADES 1 and 2
 Students with limited or no math competition experience are invited to join the Exploring course.
 In this course, students will be introduced to 2D and 3D visualization as well as the problemsolving strategies of Draw a Picture, Find a Pattern, Make an Organized List, Build a Table, Work Backwards, and Guess and Check through a mixture of games and plentiful exposure to Level 12 Kangaroo problems.
 Homework for this course will be problems very similar to those seen in class to reinforce the use of the strategies taught each week.
 The course will culminate in working through the entire 2012 Level 12 contest together as a group.
 This class is planned to meet 10 times for 1 hour each.
 The class size:12 students
Lesson Topics:
 Patterns
 Draw it out
 Work backwards
 Calendar and time
 Make an organized list
 Make a table
 Guess and check
 2D visualization
 3D visualization
 The 4step method and MK2012

TARGET AGES 910
GRADES 3 and 4
 Students with math competition experience or who are interested in competing at a high level in Math Kangaroo are invited to join the Navigating Course.
 This course draws on problems from the Level 34 competitions, and assumes students have some familiarity with problem solving strategies.
 This course is intense and fastpaced, and the required homework each week will be an entire Math Kangaroo exam to build the students’ persistence and stamina for the actual competition.
 The course will culminate in a math project that the students present.
 This class is planned to meet 10 times for 1 hour each.
 The class size: 12 students
Lesson Topics:
 Introduction
 Draw a picture or diagram
 Make an organized list
 Make a table
 Find a pattern and solve a simpler related problem
 Guess and check
