PAMO is an activity of the African Mathematical Union Commission on Pan African Mathematics Olympiads (AMUPAMOC) created in 1986, one year later, after the creation of African Mathematical Union (AMU) in Morocco in 1976
Objectives of AMU-PAMOC
1. To stimulate and develop the interest of African Youths in solving Mathematical problems.
2. To promote positive interactions and healthy competitions among African youths at national, regional and continental levels thus furthering African unity through Mathematics.
3. To use the medium of mathematics Olympiads to popularize Mathematics among African youths.
4. To encourage many African countries, through their participation in the Pan-African Mathematics Olympiad (PAMO), to participate in the International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO).
5. To enable exchanging experiences between African countries concerning teaching Mathematics.
During each mandate a new AMUPAMOC members are appointed. FOR THE MANDATE 2022-2026 : THE NEW AMUPAMOC MEMBERS FOR THE MANDATE 2022 - 2026

What is PAMO ?
The Pan African Mathematics Olympiads (PAMO) are prestigious event of the African Mathematics Union (AMU) organized each year, since 1987, in an African Country where the best pupils in Mathematics of the Secondary Education who are less than twenty (20) years old, are invited to compete.
While emulating the African Youth, it contributes to integration and allows the AMU to detect new talents in Mathematics in order to secure a changeover of quality.
The competition is made of two rounds. Each round is made of 3 problems for four hours and thirty minutes while each problem's total score is 7 points. There are up to six candidates per country.
