Press Release: South Africa Wins Pan-African Maths Olympiad
South Africa took top honours in the Tenth Pan-African Mathematics Olympiad (PAMO) held over the week 17-24 January 2000, winning Gold Medals in both the individuals and team categories. The Olympiad was hosted by the University of Cape Town and the University of the Western Cape. The South African team:
Lisa Alberti, grade 12, Fairbairn College, Cape Town, Theo Mokgatlhe, grade 10, St Dominic's College, Welkom, Shen Tian, St David's Marist College, Johannesburg, Koos van Zyl, Hoerskool Overkruin, Pretoria. was ranked first among the seven competing teams, with Koos van Zyl winning overall first place and a Gold Medal. Shen Tian was ranked 4th and won a Silver Medal, while Lisa Alberti took 11th place and was awarded a Bronze Medal. The South African Team Leader was Professor Dirk Laurie, of the University of Potchefstroom. The seven competing countries were: Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, Mozambique, South Africa and Uganda. The ``obvious question" we should all ask, answer, and try do something about for the future, is: Why didn't Zimbabwe take part?

Elbert Frank Cox (1895-1969). A.B., Indiana University, 1918; Ph.D., Cornell University, 1924. First African American to earn a Ph.D. in Mathematics. Member of the Mathematics faculty at Howard University, 1929-1961. While at Howard, a professional colleague of Dudley Weldon Woodard and William W.S. Claytor. Photograph courtesy of James A. Donaldson, "Black Americans in Mathematics," in Peter Duren, ed., A Century of Mathematics in America, Part III (Providence, Rhode Island: American Mathematical Society, 1989), at page 452.
In 1882 the University of Pennsylvania established its Ph.D. program in arts and sciences and ten years later awarded its first doctorate in mathematics. The modern Department of Mathematics at Penn dates from 1899 when mathematics at Penn became fully distinguished from cognate disciplines. Like other departments in the Graduate School, Mathematics admitted women and people of color from its inception. Roxana Hayward Vivian was the first woman to earn the Ph.D., taking her degree in 1901 and later becoming Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy at Wellesley College. In the years before 1927 four women earned the Ph.D. in Mathematics at Penn. In 1896 Lewis Baxter Moore was the first African American to earn a Ph.D. at Penn, taking his degree in Classics. Other talented African Americans had preceded him in earning degrees in the College and in Penn's several professional schools. Their contributions to University history were celebrated in A Century of Black Presence, an exhibition opened in 1980 and still on display in the lobby of the DuBois College House. Penn's first African American Ph.D.s in mathematics, however, did not enjoy public recognition until this exhibition was organized in 1998.

African Female Mathematicians Margaret Alic (1986) in her book, Hypatia's Heritage , discusses women in science. Alic asserts that women were the first botanists. Women are given credit for inventing weaving and spinning. Alic bases her claims on the assumption that "...evidence from the early scientific work of women can be traced..." from "oral traditions." Alic goes on to say that Neolithic women were often thought to be possessed of magical powers, not only because of their ability to give birth, but also because of their skills in the domestic sciences - manufacturing, pottery, agriculture, the domestication of animals and healing. It was these achievements that early cultures personified in their goddesses. (See Women in Egypt Alic relates that in the Kahun medical papyrus, women "...diagnosed pregnancy, guessed at the sex of the unborn child (if the mother's face was green it would be a boy), tested for sterility and treated dysmenorrhoea (irregular menstruation). Women surgeons performed caesarian sections, removed cancerous breasts, and set bones with splints." She attributes the following accomplishments to the women of prehistory, many of whom were undoubtedly African:
  • methods of gathering, preparing and preserving food

A Mathematical Renaissance in Africa
Mathematics was born in Africa. A notched calendar stick over 35000 years old, discovered recently in the Lebombo mountains, is the oldest mathematical artefact known. Written mathematics is first found in Africa, in the papyri of the pyramid-builders of ancient Egypt between four and five thousand years ago. And mathematics reached its full maturity as a rigorous axiomatic subject in Alexandria over two thousand years ago.
Africa needs to reclaim its position at the forefront of the world's mathematical stage.

Electronic Mail Address: On June 21-23, 1995, a Conference for African American Researchers in the Mathematical Sciences was held at MSRI in Berkeley, California. The conference presented current research in a broad range of mathematical areas to stimulate cross disciplinary discussion and highlight future trends. Workshops were held to discuss: the ways that all mathematics researchers can encourage the greater participation of under-represented minorities in their fields, a summer program for minority graduate students, and career development for researchers and professionals in the mathematical sciences. Information about events related to that conference and some publications from that conference can be accessed here.

    Clarification: Professor Gloria Emeagwali does not share the same gender or profession with the computer scientist/mathematician and winner of the 1989 Gordon Bell Prize. In fact we have never met- but I congratulate him for his magnificent achievements.
    In this site we present various perspectives on African Indigenous Knowledge Systems(AIK) from a wide range of scholars. We publish brief extracts from scholarly works on the subject and focus on several areas. We are proud to say that this site has been listed by the United Nations Educational,Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as one of the top 50 of African websites.

    The Study of the African Sona Geometry as an Example of Ethnomathematical Research
    1. Author's publications on Sona Geometry and Ethnomathematics
    The following paper presents an introduction to the German language edition of the book "Sona Geometry: Reflections on the Sand Drawing Tradition of Peoples of Africa South of the Equator". The original edition was in three volumes in Portuguese (Universidade Pedagógica, Maputo, 1993/4): Volume 1 : Analysis and reconstruction;
    Volume 2 : Mathematical and educational exploration;
    Volume 3 : Comparative analysis. The first volume has already been published in English (Universidade Pedagógica, Maputo, 1994). The three volumes have been published in French in 1995 under the title "Une Tradition Géométrique en Afrique - Les Dessins sur le Sable" (Éditions L'Harmattan, Paris / Montreal, 594 pp.). The German language edition "Ethnomathematik dargestellt am Beispiel der Sona Geometrie" (Spektrum Verlag, Berlin / Heidelberg / Oxford, 1997, 436 pp., ISBN: 3-8274-0201-8) contains the three volumes in one book and was enlarged by an introduction on ethnomathematics as a field of research. It has a preface by Harald Scheid and Erhard Scholz (Bergische Universität, Wuppertal). An earlier book, in German, by the author on ethnomathematics was published in 1990 under the title "Ethnogeometrie. Kulturanthropologische Beiträge zur Genese und Didaktik der Geometrie" (Verlag Franzbecker, Bad Salzdetfurth /Hildesheim, 360 pp., ISBN 3-88120-189-0). It contains a preface by Peter Damerow (Max Planck Institut für Bildesforschung, Berlin), and is reviewed by Bernhard Andelfinger in 'Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Mathematik' (ZDM, Karlsruhe, 94/1, 22-24). Related to the educational use of the sona sand drawing tradition, the author also published the following books:
