The 9th Annual Competition of The Ultimate Mathematics Ambassador (TUMA) Set to Begin
Ambassador Schools Ota in Ogun state has started accepting applications from primary school pupils for The Ultimate Mathematics Ambassador (TUMA) competition.
The Ultimate Mathematics Ambassador (TUMA) competition targets primary five and six pupils in private and public schools within the states which form our areas of coverage: Lagos State and Ogun State. What inspired our decision to begin from the grassroots – the foundational level of our education system – is the need to eliminate the phobia for Mathematics with a view to preparing the pupils for future problem-solving tasks as they advance to higher educational levels. Our objective is to sensitise, encourage and stimulate learners’ interest in Mathematics.

The first stage will consist of all applicants sitting down for the examination in which the first 50 will be chosen to sit for the 2nd stage of the examination and then finally the top 10 candidates will sit for the final exam which is in the 3rd stage as scheduled below:
