MATHEMATICS

Department of Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics was set up in 1992 with only one faculty and mathematics was taught as one of the subjects in B.A. Programme. The department introduced B.Sc. Programme with mathematic combination in 1998 and this necessitated the expansion of the department upto 4 faculty members.

The Department has committed faculty members, specialised in different branches of the subject, ensure that the students receive the best possible instruction in the subject. This means imparting sound knowledge of mathematical concepts by using a variety of pedagogical practices such as seminars, quizzes, group discussions, etc., along with conventional classroom teaching methodology. The department exemplifies the philosophy ‘The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics.’ Though the department strives to build a strong foundation of mathematical concepts in students by means of instruction, it also recognizes and encourages the importance of creative exploration and discovery by the students themselves. Hence, the Department aims to inculcate academic rigour, critical reasoning, independent thinking as well as innovative ideas for in the minds of students.

OBJECTIVES

The prime objectives of the Department of Mathematics include:

  • To make students derive mathematical proofs, solutions and interpretations for mathematical problems clearly, concisely, and correctly.
  • To explore and research on various mathematical applications inside and outside of mathematics.
  • To encourage students to participate on research projects.

 

PROGRAMMES OF STUDY:

The Department of Mathematics offers the following Programmes in CBCS mode since the academic year 2015-2016.

UG PROGRAMMES

1. B.Sc. (M.P.C)
2. B.Sc. (M.P.Cs)
3. B.Sc. (M.S.Cs)
