  • Sign up for a free Math Kangaroo Review session taking place a week before the Competition (more details coming soon).

Piedmont ALPS (Advanced Learners Program Support) is managing the local center at PMS, and we’ll be offering Piedmont Math Team enrichment programs to assist with training and team-building, running from January to March under separate registration. In order to sign up for those, students must first be registered to sit for Math Kangaroo in March. See below for more details about the training options and how to register for that program.
