Since 1994, the association "Kangourou Sans Frontières"
(Kangourou without borders) organizes every year the "Kangourou" international mathematics competition for more than six millions of participants all around the world!
The Kangourou competition was initiated back in 1991 by two French teachers (André Deledicq et Jean Pierre Boudine) who decided to start the competition in France under the name "Kangaroo" to pay tribute to their Australian friends.
In the first edition, 120 000 juniors took part. Ever since the competition has been opened to pupils as well as to senior students, followed by 21 European countries forming altogether "Kangaroo without borders".
The internationalization of this game-competition taking place simultaneously in more than 60 countries allows the announcement of results only from the 21 of April. Results and rankings will be published on the internet as of Tuesday the 23rd of April.
This year, thanks to the initiative of Mathematics and Computer Science Professor Loic Cellier from Université de Strasbourg
, UFAZ hosted the contest for the first time, for 1rst year students.
The winner of the UFAZ competition (provided his ranking enables it) will have a chance to represent UFAZ and Azerbaijan in France amongst international teams during the summer.
