Department of Mathematics
Course Offered: B.Sc.(Mathematics)
The Department of Mathematics was established in the year 1965. Mr. M. P. Jain was the first Head of the Department. Initially, the department started B. Sc. (Non-Medical) program. From the session 2012-13, the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) was introduced under Rashtriya Uchttar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) and the semester system was introduced for the first time. Under RUSA, the department offered B. Sc. / B. A. with Mathematics (Pass Course and Honours in Mathematics) and B. Sc. Physical Sciences Courses. From the session 2017-18, the department started a Postgraduate Course M.Sc. in Mathematics. In the session 2018-19, again the Annual System was introduced and the department offered B. Sc. / B. A. with Mathematics (Pass Course) and B. Sc. Physical Sciences Courses under CBCS with the new syllabus as per new UGC guidelines. All faculty members actively engaged in teaching, research and extension activities.

- List of Innovative Teaching Methodology:
Teaching-Learning through ppt. mode:
Effective teaching and learning in mathematics through the PowerPoint (PPT) mode involves utilizing the features and capabilities of PowerPoint to enhance the understanding and engagement of students. Here is an explanation of how this can be achieved:
- Visual Representation: PPT allows for the integration of visual elements, such as graphs, diagrams, and illustrations. Visual representations help students visualize abstract mathematical concepts, making them more accessible and easier to understand.
- Step-by-Step Instruction: PPT can be used to present mathematical concepts in a step-by-step manner. Breaking down complex ideas into smaller, sequential steps helps students follow the thought process and grasp the underlying logic.
- Interactive Elements: PPT enables the incorporation of interactive elements like hyperlinks, animations, and multimedia. These interactive features can engage students by allowing them to explore mathematical concepts, solve problems, and interact with the content actively.
- Practice and Application: PPT can include practice exercises, problem-solving scenarios, or interactive quizzes to provide students with opportunities to apply their learning. This promotes active learning and helps students reinforce their understanding of mathematical concepts.
- Real-World Contexts: PPT can be used to connect mathematical concepts to real-world applications. By illustrating how mathematics is used in practical situations, students can better appreciate the relevance and importance of the subject.
- Scaffolding: PPT can be used to scaffold learning by starting with simpler examples and gradually increasing the complexity. This gradual progression helps students build their understanding and confidence, ensuring they are ready to tackle more challenging mathematical problems.
- Formative Assessment: PPT allows for the integration of formative assessment tools such as quizzes, polls, or interactive activities. These assessments can help instructors gauge students' understanding, identify misconceptions, and provide immediate feedback to guide their learning.
- Visual Organization: PPT enables instructors to organize mathematical content in a visually appealing and logical manner. Well-structured slides with clear headings, bullet points, and subheadings can help students navigate the content and follow the flow of the lesson effectively.
- Multimedia Integration: PPT allows for the integration of multimedia elements, such as videos or audio clips. These multimedia resources can be used to present real-life examples, demonstrations, or explanations, enhancing students' understanding and engagement.
- Recap and Summary: PPT can be used to recap key points and summarize the main concepts covered in a lesson. This helps students consolidate their learning and provides a clear overview of the essential takeaways.
Overall, the effective use of PPT in mathematics teaching and learning involves leveraging its visual and interactive capabilities to present content in a clear, engaging, and organized manner. By incorporating various instructional strategies and multimedia elements, PPT can support student understanding, application, and retention of mathematical concepts.
