Information technology has become part of the educational process in most European countries. However, it should not be just about using information technology to prepare for teaching or to present the curriculum. The digitization of the educational process should be implemented with the active participation of pupils and students. Digitization can also be reflected in the processing of assigned tasks by students.

For modeling and solving more complex geometric problems, we can use, for example, the program GeoGebra or Cabri Geometry. With the use of these programs we have a very good experience in working with students. Using these programs, it is relatively easy to explain the solution of, for example, structural geometry problems. Database of all tasks from the international mathematical competition Mathematical Kangaroo, we recommend to mathematics teacher as a suitable study material in which students get acquainted with various methods of solving mathematical problems. Students can use digital technology to solve these tasks and digital programs. It is one of the forms of integration of digital technologies into the teaching of mathematics.

In our article we will focus on tasks from the Mathematical Kangaroo competition, Cadet category. Among other things, we will look, using Spearman's correlation coefficient, at the statistical dependence between the number of geometric problems and the number of solvers with excellent results.
The main aim of this article is to illustrate the fact that (online) teaching geometry today is much easier.
