For our CAS project we decided to offer a kangaroo competition prep course for first and second graders. We started planning in December 2017 and the course took place from January to March. Since the timetables of the students were so different, we offered separate courses for the two different grades which also allowed us to adapt our teaching style to the different levels. During this course, we practiced math skills by doing past kangaroo competition papers, letting students try to solve examples by themselves as well as letting them present their solutions. If they had questions, we helped them or did the examples on the board. We were very happy to have had so many enthusiastic and talented students participate. We really enjoyed this experience and learned a lot from it!
