DEPARTMENT OF mathematics

Motto

GIVE THE BEST AND GET THE BEST

INTRODUCTION

The department of Mathematics was started as one of the earliest departments of the college in the year 1956. It was upgraded as PG department in 1985 and elevated as research department in 2003. Right from its inception the department has been striving to set high standards of teaching and learning adhering to the goals of the college. The department maintains a record of good service with the vision of the Founder to establish a strong mathematical foundation among the young learners.

Vision

To provide value based mathematical education with continuous enhancement through innovative and flexible curriculum that enables the students to efficiently adapt in multidisciplinary academic and research environments and the society at large.

Mission

To develop mathematical thinking and apply it to solve problems with confidence by providing rich and diverse curriculum and to expand the frontiers of mathematical knowledge through innovative teaching –learning techniques.
To assess the individual needs of the students and educate them accordingly so that they bloom as resourceful mathematicians.
To provide an ambience for originality and creativity that leads to quality research and collaborative work.
To inculcate social responsibility among students and to involve them in community related activities.

OBJECTIVES

In accordance with the mission and vision of the founder, the department of Mathematics has formulated the following objectives to translate, transform and realize the student’s expectations both qualitatively and quantitatively.
provide Learner – centric and industry ready curriculum.
Adopt new teaching –learning strategies and innovative evaluation process. motivate and provide a strong foundation for research oriented activities like projects, internship and building mathematical models, in the curriculum.
To provide a conducive environment to the students for their academic physical and mental development.
To reach the unreached through extension activities.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEO)

1. To develop logical, analytical and problem solving skills.
2. To provide ample learning opportunities to the students to comprehend and construct mathematical proofs independently.
3. To enable them to explore the nuances of mathematical techniques and apply them to various domains.
4. To instill confidence in one’s own mathematical skills and knowledge.
5. Prepare the students to be either readily employable, engage in higher learning or Indulge in research and to make them responsible citizens.
