Kangourou sans Frontières Irlande (KSF-IE) is the Irish branch of Kangourou sans Frontières (KSF) International Mathematics Contest.
KSF-IE is run in cooperation with primary school teachers, mathematics teachers in post-primary schools and parents of children in primary and post-primary education in Ireland
KSF International is an Annual International Mathematics Contest having the aim of promoting Mathematics around the world among young people aged 7-18 years. Over 6 million students took part in 2013. The name “Kangourou sans Frontières” was adopted as a tribute to Dr. Peter O'Holloran, a Mathematics teacher from Sydney, Australia who pioneered this Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ) to promote Mathematics in Australian schools in the early 1980s. Two French teachers, Dr. André Deledicq and Dr. Jean Pierre Boudine, ran a similar Mathematics contest in France, in 1991, under the name "Kangaroo without Borders". Since then, over 50 countries have joined. The contest is commonly called "Kangaroo Maths". Every year, representatives of all the participating countries meet to agree a set of questions for each age group. Dr. Michael A. Cotter and Dr. Mark Flanagan took part in the KSF International Workshop in 2013 and as a result Irish students from all 32 counties may take part in KSF for the first time in April 2014.
Registration begins on 18th March and ends on 4th April, 2014
A student may take part only once. The contest will take 45 minutes at Levels 1-3 and 60 minutes at Levels 4-6.
