The mathematics department's Math Circle Seminar will host the International Math Kangaroo Competition on March 19, 2020. Registration is available until Dec. 15 at the competition's website

More than 31,800 students participated in the competition last year. Sixty-three students took the test at K-State's center in 2019, and 13 of these students were recognized as all-national or all-state winners.

The competition is open to all students in first through 12th grades. The 75-minute test is offered in 12 levels that correspond to school grade levels. Twenty-four questions are offered to students in grades 1-4 and 30 questions to students in grades 5-12. The challenging competition questions are selected by the International Math Kangaroo committee. Each student will receive a competition booklet, T-shirt, certificate of participation and gift. Students who earn top scores at each level of participation will be awarded gold, silver or bronze medals. Also, in each participating state, first-, second- and third-place winners will be recognized at each level. Winners will be announced in May 2020.
