Department of Mathematics

 

History

The power of antiquity, the richness of its heritage, the pride of serving the cause of education, the nobility of its goal of uplifting the down-trodden and its unparalleled art of moulding clay into gold in academics with its dynamic touch make the Department of Mathematics a venerable monument in this great arena of academic adventures. It is also one the oldest departments in the College. Incessant showers of success from the Department of Mathematics at the under-graduate level ever since 2007 proved its academic fertility to stake its claim for postgraduate courses. In 2010 the Periyar University granted permission to run the Postgraduate Course in Mathematics. The Department is elevated into a research department from the year 2014 by offering a full-time M. Phil. course.

The members of the Department miss no chance of attending seminars, refresher courses, symposium and the like, to keep themselves enlightened for efficient classroom management. The power of antiquity, the richness of its heritage, the pride of serving the cause of education, the nobility of its goal of uplifting the down-trodden and its unparalleled art of moulding clay into gold in academics and make the department a venerable monument in this great arena of academic adventures.

The students of Mathematics constructively use the department library shelved with very recent books in many fields of Mathematics and its applications. The department has been using new strategies for advanced learning such as instructional strategy, additional assignment of responsibility, providing access to professional learning careers. The curriculum is updated according to the changing environment in industry, business world, and mathematics through board of studies with eminent members.
