DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS


Mathematics includes the study of such topics as quantity, structure,space, and change. Mathematicians seek and use patterns to formulate new conjectures; they resolve the truth or falsity of conjectures by mathematical proof. When mathematical structures are good models of real phenomena, then mathematical reasoning can provide insight about nature. through the use of abstraction and logic , mathematics developed from counting , calculation , measurement, and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects.

VISION

To be recognized as a global centre of excellence in Mathematics providing Research and consultancy and be a part of the challenging growth of Science and Technology.


MISSION

The mission of the mathematics department is to provide an environment where students can learn and become competent users of mathematics and mathematical application. Moreover, the department will contribute to the development of students as mathematical thinkers, enabling them to become lifelong learners, to continue to grow in their chosen professions, and to function as productive citizens.

In pursuing this mission, primary departmental functions are the development, dissemination, and application of mathematical knowledge and in the areas of: mathematics, mathematics education, and actuarial science. We will serve students who are our majors and minors, general education students, and those from other service areas.

OBJECTIVES
  1. • Enjoy mathematics and develop patience and persistence when solving problems
  2. • Understand and be able to use the language, symbols and notation of mathematics
  3. • Develop mathematical curiosity and use inductive and deductive reasoning when solving problems
  4. • Develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to pursue further studies in mathematics
  5. • Develop abstract, logical and critical thinking and the ability to reflect critically upon their work and the work of others
  6. • Develop a critical appreciation of the use of information and communication technology in mathematics
  7. • Appreciate the international dimension of mathematics and its multicultural and historical perspectives.

DEPARTMENT ACTIVITIES


Activities of our department focus on practical training for the theoretical knowledge, which students gain in the classroom.

  1. 1.To help the students motivates them to develop curious minds and curiosity about mathematics. Emphasis is given not only to the syllabus and academic performance, but also to extra-curricular activities that makes the learning process less tedious. Intensive coaching is given to achieve academic excellence and serve to the growing young and aspiring women students to achieve goals. Students are trained to communicate mathematical ideas, think creatively and solve the problems.
  2. 2. Providing induction training for the final year students for attending interviews.
  3. 3. Conducting classes for Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning ability and communication skill for fostering their Knowledge and skills.
  4. 4. Furnishing the students with bank details like filling of pay in slip, cheques etc.,

Apart from this, we are conducting other activities too

  1. Role Playing
  2. Brain Storming
  3. Business quiz.
