Math Kangaroo is a popular international not-selective competition in mathematics for students in grades 1 through 12. It is organized by “Kangourou Sans Frontiers” with the aim of promoting mathematics among young people around the world. Each participant is seen as a winner and receives recognition and gifts on the test day in March. Those who achieve the top results are awarded in May. The competition consists of a 75 minute multiple choice test with 24 to 30 questions of increasing difficulty that challenge students through posing interesting problems. Math Kangaroo helps the students both to develop their skills and to enjoy mathematics even more.

Silver Oak Math Olympiad team students have been working really hard this school year have achieved excellent results in the Olympiad contests!!!

 

The team of 33 Silver Oak students meets every Tuesday at school library to learn different problem solving techniques and practice solving non-typical math problems. They have completed 3 out of 5 contests now. The students have demonstrated a marked improvement in their mathematical thinking, their confidence when faced with a problem and, most importantly, their love for math. 

 

Math Olympiad contest consists of 5 exams held once a month from November to March. The exam covers advanced math problems and has the same paper for 4th, 5th and 6th graders. We are proud of the work put in by all the students.
