**Name of Programme: (B.Sc. Mathematics / B.A. Mathematics)**

**Mathematics Programme:**

According to German Mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss “Mathematics is the queen of the science”. Mathematics is a fundamental part of human thought, logic and integral to attempts at understanding the world and ourselves. Mathematics provides an effective way of building mental discipline and encourages logical reasoning and mental rigor. It provides foundational knowledge and skills for other subjects such as sciences, art, economy, etc. Thus there arises the need for its detailed study by adopting a systematic programme.

**Programme Objectives:**

- Develop the ability to think critically, logically and analytically and to use mathematical reasoning in everyday life.
- Create deep interest in learning mathematics.
- Communicate mathematics effectively by written, computational and graphic means.
- Develop broad and balanced knowledge and understanding of definitions, concepts, principles and theorems.
- The program covers the full range of mathematics from Classical Calculus to modern Number Theory. Thus it provides learners sufficient knowledge and skills to enable them undertake further studies in mathematics and its allied areas on multiple disciplines.
- Pursuing a degree in mathematics introduces the students to a number of interesting and useful ideas and helps them prepare for job exams in the field of education, research, government sector, business sector and industry.

Ability to identify unethical behavior such as fabrication, falsification or misrepresentation of data and adopting objective, unbiased and truthful actions in all aspects.

**Lifelong** **learning:**

Ability to think, acquire knowledge and skills through logical reasoning and to inculcate the habit of self-learning.

**Programme Specific Outcomes:**

**DSE (Discipline Specific Elective):**

Choices from DSE provide the students with liberty of exploring his interest within the Mathematics. They enhance the ability of learners to apply the knowledge and skills acquired during the programme to solve specific theoretical and applied problems in mathematics.

**SEC (Skill Enhancement Courses):**

These courses enable the student to acquire the skill relevant to Mathematics. They familiarize the students with suitable tools of mathematical analysis to handle issue and problems in mathematics and related sciences.

Let us have a look on different courses of this programme: –

**MATH101TH: Differential Calculus: –**

This course will enable the students to assimilate the notions of limits, continuity, differentiability of functions at a point. Sketch curves in Cartesian and Polar co-ordinate systems, expansion of functions using Maclurin’s and Taylor’s theorems, curvature, asymptotes and curve tracing.

**MATH102TH: Differential Equations: –**

It will enable learners to learn various techniques of getting exact solutions of solvable first order differential equations and linear differential equations of higher order. They will be introduced to partial differential equations and their solutions.

**MATH201TH: Real Analysis: –**

Learners will get concept of real line, completeness property, real sequences, infinite series, uniform convergence and power series.

**MATH202TH: Algebra: –**

Students will learn about algebraic structures, groups, subgroups, their types; They will be also introduced to rings, subrings, integral domains and fields.

**MATH309TH: Integral Calculus: –**

This SEC will lead expertise in integration, rectification and quadrature. Students will learn to handle double and triple integrals.

**MATH310TH: Vector Calculus: –**

It will teach students to find gradient divergence, curl, vector integration and provides a peep into the beautiful world of Gauss, Green and Stokes theorem.

**MATH301TH: Matrices: –**

It will enable students to read different types of matrices, corelate matrices and linear transformation, compute eigen values, eigen vectors, concept of vector spaces, subspaces,solution of linear equation using matrices.

**MATH304TH: Numerical Methods: –**

This course will help in administering numerical methods for solutions of non-linear equations, iterative methods for solution of linear equations. Students will know about interpolation, differential operators, numerical differentiation and numerical integration methods.

**MATH313TH: Probability and Statistics: –**

This course will change one’s sight of viewing different experiments by defining sample space, probability, providing in depth knowledge of different probability distributions and joint probability distribution functions.

**MATH317TH: Transportation and Game Theory: –**

No mathematics programme is complete without operations research. Operations research is that branch of mathematics which helps in optical decision making in various business situations. So, this SEC deals with solution of transportation problems, assignment problems and game theory.
