COMPETITIONS

All Archimedes students are encouraged to participate in competitions happening from October through May. Competitions introduce students to creative challenges in an enjoyable way, inspiring interests in solving problems by fostering self-confidence.
We have carefully selected the following competitions to ensure logical reasoning and analytical thinking are the key skills being tested.

Math Kangaroo

The Math Kangaroo competition emphasizes creative problem-solving, math reasoning and logic. Students are given 24 or 30 challenging and creative problems depending on grade which are sorted in 3 categories by difficulty level. The problems require logical reasoning and are very fun to work on.

Problems from the previous years can be found at Kangaroo US and the Kangaroo Canada page in English or at Kengur bez granica page in Serbian.
