Kangaroo Mathematics Competition is an international competition, in which 91 countries all over the world participate. This competition interested in focusing on the logical constructions of mathematics and building applied skills rather than knowing mathematical formulas and equations. This competition aims to help the transition from theories to practice.

The competition was introduced in 1980 in Australia by mathematics teacher Peter Hallron; it succeeded tremendously as a national competition around Australia, and then it moved to France in 1991, and registered in its first version nearly 120 thousand students, in according to this success , 21 countries participated in the competition It was proposed to establish Kangaroo Without Borders.

Now the contest is over 6 million Student participate annually all over the world .

Kangaroo International Mathematics Competition differs from other competitions in that it focuses on developing issues that require the development of creativity skills, critical analysis and problem solving and getting students to deal with mathematical issues from different aspects , thus developing students' positive attitude in life.
