How to Start Math Kangaroo Center

Thank you for visiting our page for the future Math Kangaroo Leaders!

Basic information about the logistics of Math Kangaroo:

School registration deadline: December 1

School registration fee: $0

Students’ registration deadline and fees:

If registered by December 15 – $21 per student

If registered after December 15 – $35 per student

There are no restrictions on the participation eligibility besides the ability to read and answer questions independently

Managers of In-the-classroom centers: you will receive the question booklets, answer cards, pencils, T-shirts, and gifts for all participants at the end of February or beginning of March. After the test (same day or the day after) you will send the answer forms back to the MK office. In May we will send you awards for your winners.

Managers of online centers: you will receive the T-shirts and gifts for all participants at the end of February or beginning of March. The test will be delivered electronically and you will proctor your students online; the test booklets, answer sheets and pencils are therefore not needed. In May we will send you awards for your winners.

Math Kangaroo Manager to do and to know:

All students have equal opportunities to participate regardless of their math abilities.

It is necessary to review the received competition material asap (late Feb) to make sure there are no discrepancies.

Send an email to the registered students around Dec. 20 with a welcome message and ask to verify the correctness of the student’s name, grade, and the participation center before January 1?

Be prepared to have volunteers (parents or educators) to proctor students (in-person or online)

Be prepared to make copies of all answer sheets for your own record and mail the originals to the Math Kangaroo office right after the test or a day after.

It is necessary to review the received awards (in May) asap to make sure there are no discrepancies.

Send a congratulatory email to the winners with the awards ceremony or pick-up arrangement information. 

Apply to become a new Math Kangaroo center here: APPLICATION FOR BECOMING MATH KANGAROO CENTER.

If you would like to register a few schools/centers that have a different address you should fill out the form multiple times. When your application is received you will be contacted within one week with the center readiness information so you can notify your students about the registration being opened. Even with several centers you will have just one manager account. 

Centers with ‘By Invitation’ registration

By Invitation centers allow registration of only their own students. The manager provides their families with Center Invitation Code to be used on the registration page. The manager should notify the families to keep the code confidential and not share it with outsiders.

Centers with open registration for any student

Open registration centers allow registration for any student. Only in-the-classroom centers can have an open registration status.

We are grateful for your interest to join us in our mission of helping students love math.
