Go for the challenge in Math Kangaroo

March 19, 2022.

Go for the challenge in Math Kangaroo!  Morgan and Alex, 5th-graders. took the  competitive exam on Saturday, March 19th, on the NMSU campus. This is an international competition, and an event aimed at fun in solving math puzzles of high order.  In 2020 over 35,000 American students participated; the enrollment increases every year.  Only 3 New Mexicans participated last year;  Morgan and Alex are on the leading edge. Wei Tang blazed the way for them; he’s an LCA parent and Klipsch Distinguished Associate Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering.  He started an after-school math club back in September 2021.  His deep math challenges excite the students in grades 3 and up each week.
