Pawle who worked as a HOD has joined the University department of Mumbai University as a faculty.
Department of Mathematics has courses at the undergraduate level with entire Mathematics for the third year in Science stream while in Commerce stream Mathematical and Statistical Techniques is taught at the first-year level. Presently, the department has six faculty members and about 720 students. Faculties encourage and guide students to participate in various intercollegiate competitions. Also, students are given guidance for various competitive examination
The Department has organized two days state-level workshop on “Application of Computer-Aided System to Mathematics Teaching” sponsored by UGC and also organized a seminar jointly with Vijnan Bharati on ” Journey of Mathematics in India” to celebrate the 125th Birth Anniversary of great Mathematician Shri. Shrinivas Ramanujan in the National year of Mathematics. Mathematics Department organizes MATHSPIRE exhibitions and events based on Mathematical knowledge during UTSAV.
One of our students Ms. Divya Revankar showed exceptionally all-round performance, she stood First in Mathematics in the University examination and overall the seventh rank at University. Also, she won Bronze Medal in Karate at South Asian Games. Every year our students attend MTTS and mini MTTS programs conducted by the National Board of Higher Mathematics. One of our students Ms. Divya Nadar won second prize at state level seminar competition based on Mathematical concepts.
The College Library has a number of books on various topics in Mathematics. Every year department purchases books as per the requirement of the syllabus as well as reference books for teachers and students.
Department has well equipped Computer Laboratory with software required as per the syllabus and has Mathematics Laboratory. Students of the department have a bright future as they could secure good jobs in IT companies, Banks, Insurance Companies, Schools, and Colleges.
About the Subject
Faculties of Mathematics department are required to teach two papers in the first year, three papers at second year and four papers at a third-year level covering topics like Calculus, Algebra, Topology, Discrete Mathematics, Complex Analysis and Number Theory in Science Stream while in Commerce Stream we teach Mathematical and Statistical Techniques at the first year.
Mathematics is one of the important subjects for Science as well as Commerce students. It helps students to improve their analytical skills and Quantitative techniques, Many organizations, Institutes, and companies require persons with good mathematical backgrounds.
Our faculties apart from usual teaching encourage students to use library books, different mathematical software also guides students for various competitions such as Madhava Mathematics Competition, Seminar Competition, Quiz Competitions, etc. Every year our students attend MTTS and mini MTTS program conducted by the National Board of Higher Mathematics which helps them to understand their basic concepts.
Applied component subjects i.e. Computer Programming and Systems Analysis help students to get jobs as well as helps them in the preparation of competitive exams.
Many of our students get opportunities to secure jobs through campus placements in Companies like Wipro, Patani, and Infosys, etc.
