## General

Mathematics Contest

The idea for "Kangaroo" started in the 1980’s in Australia, and its originator was Peter O’ Halloran, a famous mathematician and teacher. The goal of the competition is to evoke interest in mathematics in larger and larger numbers of youths around the world. The 'Kangaroo' questions contain interesting problems of algebra, geometry, logic, and other areas of mathematics. Because there are no qualifying contests, all who are willing can participate in the competition. International Kangaroo Mathematics Contest (also known as Mathematics without Borders) is an international event guided by the International Association 'Mathematiques Pour Tous' (Mathematics for all). Association was created in 1990 and now unites more than 30 countries from all over the world.
