The Kangaroo Math Competition is an international school-level mathematics competition which is organized by the Association Kangourou sans Frontieres (AKSF), a transnational education group based in Paris, France. Founded in the early 1980’s, Kangaroo Math Competition is now the world’s largest math competition with more than 6 million participants from some 80 countries in 2018.
Thailand is inducted into AKSF in 2018 and Phi Learning Centre has been sanctioned by AKSF to organize the Kangaroo Math Competition in Thailand starting 2019.
