A project by the International Mathematical Union (IMU) supported by the Simons Foundation.

The International Day of Mathematics (IDM) is a worldwide celebration of mathematics, held each year on March 14, see idm314.org. It is coordinated by the International Mathematical Union and has been proclaimed by UNESCO. For the IDM 2021 and its theme “Mathematics for a Better World” we joined hands with partner organizations in 3 African countries to plan and organize a series of ONLINE EVENTS with panel discussions, talks, interactive workshops, classroom activities, competitions, teacher trainings, etc.

The partner organizations are:

  • Mathematical Society of Algeria
  • Mathematical Society of Senegal
  • Mathematical Society of Congo
  • Knowledge Sharing Campaign (KSC)
  • IMAGINARY 

 

The events will happen around March 14, 2021, and are held in French, English, and Arabic (see details for events and languages below). This project is supported by the Simons Foundation. The support includes help in organization, coordination, setting up the online platform, conducting interactive workshops/activities, and train local organizers.
