African Maths Initiative

Sharing Initiatives in Maths Education


The African Maths Initiatives is a a collective of mathematicians and mathematics educators working to create a stronger mathematical community and culture of mathematics across Africa. By creating a broader base of locally-produced mathematically literate people, we will provide Kenyans with the skills to take on major problems facing the nation from AIDS to climate change. We are working to create stronger ties between African mathematical communities and the international community in order to raise local standards and improve local conditions. Our vision cuts across all levels of mathematics, from schools to institutional frameworks.

This website is intended to provide information on some key initiatives in maths education and provide regular updates on the progress of these initiatives.  If you've never visited before, a good place to start may be the video about one of our maths camps, hosted in Maseno University, Kenya.
