What could kangaroos and mathematics possibly have to do with each other? Can you believe it that the word 'kangaroo' is actually all about mathematics in March? This March, with the help of their amazing teacher mentors, our pupils achieved unbelievable results in the competition! Check this out!
The Kangaroo took place on 16th March in 623 elementary schools in Croatia. Have a look at their official web location Kangaroo – 2023 – Croatian Mathematical Society (matematika.hr). And here are some official numbers, because everything's about numbers in mathematics, right;)?
