Tips and Tricks

We at Mathnasium of Avon will be hosting Math Kangaroo as a designated testing center this year, on Thursday March 21st. For those who have registered, here is some information, tips and tricks for helping your child to prepare:

  • Levels correspond with school grades:

    • 1st Grade -- Level 1

    • 2st Grade -- Level 2

    • 3st Grade -- Level 3

    • .....

    • 12th Grade (Senior Class in High School) -- Level 12

  • 75 Minutes multiple choice test

  • 24 Questions for students in grades 1, 2, 3 and 4

  • 30 Questions for students in grades 5 and up

  • Each participant receives a competition booklet, an answer form, scratch paper and pencil.

  • Here is an example of a Math Kangaroo answer form. Note that grading is done through the use of Scantron materials, requiring answers to be bubbled in fully. For more information on this, please check out Scantron's informational video on Youtube.

  • No aids other than writing instruments and paper will be allowed. In particular, no calculators will be allowed on any part of the competition, and any cell phones must be turned off.

 

  • Each question has point value. 1/3 of questions are 3 points each, 1/3 - 4 points each, 1/3 - 5 points each. The sum of earned points is the student's result.

  • The maximum possible score is 96 points at levels: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 120 points at levels 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12.

  • Check out the practice material to get a feel for the test.

We look forward to seeing you on test day!
 

 SUMMER MATH CAMPS ARE BACK!

Our Summer Math Camps are the most popular summer camps in Farmington Valley!

Families use them to provide their school-going children the perfect balance of relaxation and math work so that students start the new school grade already AHEAD of their classmates in September!!

Camps are designed to fill in knowledge gaps from prior years so your child can ask all their math questions without fear, without embarressment or any peer pressure of any sort!

A John Hopkins study published in 2010 showed there are academic consequences for children later in life due to learning loss in Summer.

Dont let that happen to your child - call us today at 860-785-6284 to enroll them in our Summer Math sessions!
