SA whiz kids strike gold SIMPIWE PILISO FRITZ van Zyl was one of four South African teenagers who walked away with all the gold medals at the 12th Pan African Mathematics Olympiad. The 17-year-old Western Cape pupil was placed third overall in the week-long contest while his teammate, Tamara von Glehn, 15, took first place. She was not available to speak to the Sunday Times. Forty-two pupils from 11 African countries participated in the event staged in Pretoria last week. Said Van Zyl: "Third place was a bit unexpected since I managed 28th place out of about 40 participants last year." He was also awarded a special prize for a "highly original solution" to one of the maths problems. The 12th Pan African Mathematics Olympiad is an annual event organised by the African Mathematical Union. Olympiad spokesman Nina Bhaktawar said the aim of the 14-year-old contest was to detect "youthful talent" in mathematics, establishing friendly relations between African mathematicians and exchanging information on teaching methods .

Pan-African Mathematics Olympiad Saturday 13 April 2002 Members of the African Mathematics Union, Distinguished Members of the Diplomatic Corps, Colleagues and most important of all, young mathematicians. South Africa is proud to welcome the Olympiad teams – the 60 bright young mathematicians from over Africa who have travelled to our country to participate in this event, the 12th Pan-African Mathematics Olympiad (PAMO). In the spirit of African friendship, it is wonderful that all of you can come together, not only to compete, but also to get to know one another. Through this experience, I hope that you will discover a new enthusiasm for mathematics. Let me first congratulate you all. Some have overcome immense personal difficulties to be here; others have overcome immense mathematical difficulties. You have all shown great talent, perseverance, and a real capacity for tremendous hard work. Welcome to the Ambassadors of participating countries, and the Olympiad team leaders. This year's PAMO is historic in that 11 African countries are participating - two thirds of Africa, and a substantial increase in participants from previous years.

Council Diary June 2000
June's Council meeting saw the presentation by the Treasurer of the Annual Budget, which was approved. Our financial situation is healthy. We are increasing our expenditure on charitable mathematical activities; this seems to be in keeping with our status as a charity, and so Council was not penitent, despite an apparent drop in our income (hard to estimate since an accurate estimate of our publication surplus is not yet available), but felt that many would think we should spend even more in this area. Council also approved small increases in subscriptions and periodical prices. Council continued the discussion sparked off by Ken Brown's visit to Africa in January of ways in which the Society might usefully support mathematics within Africa. It wishes to support exchanges in both directions with African mathematicians. The present scheme 5 will not easily extend for this purpose, and a new scheme may be needed. Proposals for exchanges will be invited from UK mathematicians. It was noted that some excellent links already exist, but since it was recognised that many Africans do not have existing contacts with the UK, it seemed that the LMS would need to facilitate the creation of further links. The Society also agreed to give start-up support to the new Journal of the Southern Africa Mathematical Sciences Association, which will give a forum within the region for locally produced mathematics. The President has now returned from a very enjoyable and successful visit to St Petersburg and Moscow. During his visit he discussed LMS proposals for a ‘prize fellowship’ scheme, which might finance brief visits by young mathematicians to the UK and afterwards offer them some continuing financial support back home. The details of such a scheme would need to be carefully worked out in consultation with leaders of the mathematical community within the fSU. The Society is anxious to provide support within the fSU and Eastern Europe, and not to encourage a brain drain; it is feared that schemes of this nature can often have that effect. There was also strong support in Moscow and St Petersburg for a proposal for a joint mathematical meeting with the LMS; this is being considered.

African Americans in the Sciences
The Past: "What Has Happened Before?" Profiled here are African American men and women who have contributed to the advancement of science and engineering. The accomplishments of the past and present can serve as pathfinders to present and future engineers and scientists. African American chemists, biologists, inventors, engineers, and mathematicians have contributed in both large and small ways that can be overlooked when chronicling the history of science. By describing the scientific history of selected African American men and women we can see how the efforts of individuals have advanced human understanding in the world around us.

When her servitude ended, Molly purchased a farm along the Patapsco River near Baltimore. and two slaves. In time she set the slaves free and married one of them, a man named Bannaky (changed from Banna Ka). They had several children, one a daughter named Mary. Mary Bannaky grew up, purchased a slave, Robert, whom she later married and lived on the family farm. On Nov. 9, 1731, a son, Benjamin, was born to Robert and Mary Bannaky. Using the Bible, Molly Bannaky taught Mary's children to read, and soon after, Benjamin would read the bible to his mother and grandmother. For those times, life was good to this little community, but work was hard, but not challenging to Benjamin. He learned to play the flute and the violin, and when a Quaker school opened in the valley, Benjamin attended it during the winter where he learned to write and elementary arithmetic. He had an eighth-grade education by time he was 15, at which time he took over the operations for the family farm. He devised an irrigation system of ditches and little dams to control the water from the springs (known around as Bannaky Springs) on the family farm. Their tobacco farm flourished even in times of drought.

GENERAL INFORMATION Cape Town in summer is one of the most beautiful cities of the world with its coastal scenery, Table Mountain and famous beaches. The weakness of the South African currency againt the Euro and Dollar makes the cost of food and accomodation very cheap for overseas participants. The organisers of PACOM2000 have put together an impressive sightseeing program which is described on their web page. FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AND DEADLINES Unfortunately we are unable to pay the cost of airfares for attending speakers, however the Centre for Applicable Analysis and Number Theory may be able to contribute some local cost to speakers at NUMBER THEORY DAY 2000.

For the second year running a team of four High School students from South Africa have won top honours in the Pan African Mathematics Olympiad (PAMO) which was held in Maputo, Mozambique from 19 to 27 April 2003.
The South Africa team: Lisa Alberti (Deputy Leader), Divya Babu (Bronze Medal), Linsen Loots (Winner-Gold Medal), David Hatton (Team Leader), Gayle Sher (Silver Medal), Yumna Moosa (Silver Medal-first girl). The team consisting of:
  • Linsen Loots (grade 12, Parel Vallei HS)
  • Yumna Moosa (grade 10, Wynberg Girls' High School)
  • Gayle Sher (grade 10, Reddam House)
  • Divya Babu (grade 11, Ixopo High School) took a Gold, 2 Silvers and a Bronze medal respectively.
The South African team won overall first place in the Olympiad team rankings. Their coach, David Hatton (University of Cape Town), was awarded a Gold Medal as the Team Leader of the winning team. Linsen Loots was awarded the prize for the best student at the Olympiad and Yumna Moosa the best girl participant. Gayle and Divya were in fact the two next best girls.
