Department of Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics at SPM college came into existence in the year of 1969, with the establishment of the college in the same year. At present, there are four permanent teachers and four adhoc teachers in the department, all highly qualified for teaching any specialized area of pure as well as applied mathematics and for achieving excellence in the subject. The Department offers following courses:
1) B.Sc.(Hons.) in Mathematics
2) B.A.(Prog.) with Mathematics
3) Generic elective courses for B.A./B.Sc.(Hons.) in subjects other than mathematics.
4) Liberal course in Mathematics for B.El. Ed. Students
The discipline of Mathematics is highly diversified as it has applications in almost every academic field specially in economics, commerce, computer science, physics, engineering and Bio-medical sciences. With this view in mind, we offer generic elective courses of interdisciplinary nature for the students of other departments and try to enrich such students in an additional and useful field of study. The focus is on the holistic development of the students by making them understand the subject and appreciate its applications in day to day life. We groom them by intertwining classroom sessions with paper presentations and group discussions.The department extensively uses computer softwares like Mathematica and maxima to help the students visualize the beauty of mathematical concepts and techniques. The practical/Lab classes are very enriching and stimulating for the development of their logical and rational thinking.The departmental association conducts many accademic and co-curricular activities at intra-college as well as inter-college level for students which help them in developing their skills in mathematics and other areas. Mathematics Festival is our regular annual function where workshops, seminars, personality development, stress management and career counselling sessions are held along with other activities such as mathematical quiz, Sudoku competition, power point presentations, mathematical rangoli and poster making competitions etc.The primary function of the faculty is to provide innovative teaching to the students in order to ensure that they must learn the subject for achieving their academic goals to the fullest. Our mission is to set a new standard of teaching, discovery and innovation.
