The World’s Biggest Mathematical Puzzle Championship
KIC is not just a competition but a journey to math mastery, brain development, personal strengths, and pride for students, parents, schools and country.
KENKEN® HELPS IN DEVELOPING
Based on strategy not luck, KenKen improves your child’s Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS).
KenKen supports a strong ‘number sense’ and helps your child excel in math class and on standardized tests.
KenKen elevates your child’s personal strengths like independent thinking and perseverance-which means finishing what they start.
FUN & ENGAGEMENT
Kids feel the fun and excitement of solving kenken puzzles. When they succeed, they feel a sense of victory and pride.
“There are not many affordable Dubai and UAE challenges that schools/students can enter – I believe there are none for mathematics except this one.”
Deputy Head of Secondary, Regent International School
“The Kenken representatives visited school to explain to the children what the puzzle was all about. By engaging the children with the prospect of winning a trip to New York, they got them both motivated and excited to sign up and have a go. Because of this we have over 100 children trying out for the school level test including all levels of mathematicians attempting the test which is phenomenal!”
Assistant Principal, Jumeirah Primary School
“Our students at Raha International School have thoroughly enjoyed their first opportunity to compete in the KIC. The Raha community has certainly embraced the idea and I believe that next year we shall have an even bigger group participating in the initial stage of the competition, and hopefully going all the way to New York!”
Head of Faculty, Mathematics, Raha International School
“It was wonderful experience for both parents and students. All the exams were organized in such a systematic way that students had no burden on them, and even we were completely stress free. I am grateful to our school for allowing Kenken UAE the platform required to interact with our students.”

KENKEN CLASSROOM PROGRAMME
Main Objectives of the KENKEN Classroom Program:
The main objective of the Kenken Classroom Program, is to introduce Kenken among students in a classroom setting, thereby develop puzzling as a hobby among them.
Other benefits of using Kenken as a classroom tool:
Develop a sense of whole numbers and represent/use them in flexible ways, including relating, composing, and decomposing numbers.
Reinforce the knowledge of their multiplication tables, factorization, and greatest common factors.
Introduce students to the competitive form of puzzling through in class competitions.
Enable teachers to leverage their current math curriculum using Kenken as a tool (using it as extra credits, or mental warm up etc.)
Enable teachers to construct interesting activities around the puzzles, making revision of basic math concepts fun for students.
