The African Mathematical Union (AMU) or Union Mathematique Africaine (UMA) is the African equivalent of the International Mathematical Union. The official webpage of the AMU is in preparation and will be operated from the Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco ( Until that time we operate this website.



Among the activities of the AMU is the organisation of commissions:

1. AMUCHMA- the Commission on the History of Mathematics in Africa whose newsletter is available online.

2. AMUCME, the Commission on Mathematics Education in Africa.

3. AMUCWMA, the Commission on Women in Mathematics in Africa.

4. AMUCMO, The Commission for the African Mathematics Olympiads.

5. The AMU Mathematical Sciences Network

The AMU also publishes the journal Afrika Matematica, The First Pan-African Mathematical Journal.

This web page was constructed with help from past AMU President, Professor Aderemi Kuku and Professor Paulus Gerdes of Mozambique.
