The 2012 Math Kangaroo International Competition (MK) is looking for people to help with this year’s competition.

MK is an open competition for students from grades 2 – 12 who come to the University of Toronto campuses and write the international Math Kangaroo competition.

This year’s competition will take place on Sunday, March 25th and will offer prep-classes on Sunday’s in March.

Currently the following positions are available (multiple people are needed for each position):

You are more than welcome to be involved in more than one position if you would like.

Saturday Prep Assistants
* Sunday, March 4th, 11th and 18th from 12 – 2pm
* Accommodations may be available for those unable to commit to all three sessions but still wishing to assist
* These volunteers are required to help out with prep sessions, assisting students and providing general support

Test Invigilators
* Sunday, March 25th from 9:00am – 1:30pm (attendance for the full time is required)
* This includes set up of the test room, invigilation of the test and collection of papers afterwards.  Invigilators will also be considered “group leaders” for their groups of students.
* Some preparation work before the competition is required (3 – 4 hours) but the schedule for this is highly flexible.

Test Markers
* Sunday, March 25th from 1:00pm – 4:00pm
* Marking the tests and compiling the grades

Other positions may come available as we get closer to the date.

Pizza and pop and the eternal gratitude of the department (including certificates) are supplied to all volunteers.  Training will be provided.
