The South African Mathematics Foundation (SAMF) is delighted to announce the selection of two distinguished teams representing South Africa on the global stage of mathematical excellence. These teams will participate in the International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) in London, United Kingdom from 11-22 July, and the Pan-African Mathematics Olympiad (PAMO) in Johannesburg from 12-22 August.
Mathematics education often headlines for its challenges rather than its successes. Alarming statistics from international comparative studies like PIRLS and TIMSS paint a bleak picture. However, a closer look by Professor Gerrit Stols, Director at the Department for Education Innovation at the University of Pretoria and its Department of Institutional Planning, Monitoring, and Evaluation, reveals a more nuanced story.
