The Aga Khan University (AKU) Institute for Educational Development East Africa, in collaboration with the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) organized the 5th Africa Regional Congress of ICMI on Mathematical Education (AFRICME). The AFRCIME was launched in 2005 and aims at offering a forum for mathematics educators throughout Africa. This event took place at the AKU campus in Dar es Salaam Tanzania from August 29-31, 2018.
The AFRICME program offered an exciting combination of keynote lectures, panel and round table discussion, paper presentations, workshops, East Africa presentations, displays of local teaching learning materials and posters. Focus in all these will be on key developments and research in mathematics education in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly the Eastern and South-Eastern countries. Participants will be able to meet with educators and experts from the continent and get some insights into the African mathematics traditions.
The conference was attended by more than 100 delegates from 16 different countries and was opened by the Minister of Education, Science and Technology of Tanzania.
The congress venue was centrally located in Dar es Salaam which is East Africa’s second-busiest port and Tanzania’s commercial hub. The city has a rich eclectic architecture reflecting African, Indian and German infuences. It offers a wide array of craft markets and restaurants.
