The Contest "Math Kangaroo" originated in France in 1991 and quickly became very popular among students all over Europe. Several years later the International Association "Kangourou Sans Frontieres (KSF) " was founded, which now organizes the world-wide event "International Kangaroo Mathematics Contest (IKMC)". The contest's main purpose is to promote mathematical thinking and stimulate an interest in math by providing students with an opportunity to compare their abilities against the abilities of other students from different countries around the world. In the past several years the geography of the participating countries has been extended outside Europe to USA, Paraguay, Mexico, Canada, etc. In 2010 almost 6000000 students from more than 50 countries took part in the Contest world-wide. The world "Kangaroo" center, which coordinates the competition in the various countries, was founded in 1994 in Paris. In Pakistan, the competition was first organized in 2005 by the Pakistan Kangaroo Commission.
