Eye on Ivy is pleased to bring the Caribou Cup to Pakistan. Previously, only available to students studying at The International School of Choueifat, Eye on Ivy has brokered that any Pakistani student can directly register at the Caribou website: https://www.cariboutests.com!

So What Is Caribou You Ask?

The Caribou Mathematics Competition is a worldwide online contest that is held six times throughout the school year. Each of these days, six contests are offered, one for each of the grade levels 2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12 and each one in English, French, Persian, Mandarin, Ukrainian, and Azerbaijani.

The Caribou Cup is the series of all Caribou Contests in one school year. Each student’s ranking in the Caribou Cup is determined by their performance in their best 5 of 6 contests through the school year.

All support materials (written solutions, current year and previous years contests as online practise tests, online math and logic games, online mini courses) are also available without contest participation. Many of them are free.

The goals of the Caribou Cup are to:

1) Show that mathematical puzzles can be fun and that competing in math contests with interactive questions is exciting.

2) To improve student’s problem solving techniques by providing a wide variety of challenging math activities suitable for all students.

3) Motivate students to get back to their school math when a question needed a technique or formula which they did not remember.

The first contest is on 14th October, 2020!
