In this webinar a Math Kangaroo instructor incorporates engagement triggers through Polls to have students participate in an activity. There are no student-teacher discussions as it happens in a regular small group class.

Webinar Presenter: Dr. Van Koroleva, Math Kangaroo Faculty with a PhD in applied mathematics from Harvard University. Van seeks to inspire students to discover their passion for math and science. She learned early in her career teaching and doing research with college students and scientists that curiosity and strong foundational skills are absolutely necessary for successful learning at higher levels. Currently she enjoys teaching students of all ages, designing highly personalized curricula, and nurturing the inquisitive minds of her young children. She was drawn to Math Kangaroo by the shared interest of spreading the love of mathematics.
Webinar Contributor: Ethan Do – Currently in 11th grade in Bellevue, WA. Ethan has been a participant of Math Kangaroo for the past 10 years since 1st grade.  His latest national ranks are 10 and 7 for Grade 9 and Grade 10, respectively. He has been a volunteer coach for two years, teaching Pre-algebra, AMC8, Python, C++, and Introduction to Physics as well as teaching programming at his fellow middle school's after school competitive programming club.
