The Department of Mathematics has been in existence since the inception of this college in 1967. Department started its journey with B. A. (Pass) and papers in Commerce and Economics with one its now pioneer member, Ms. Promila Goswami. Dr. Neera Bahadur joined the Department in 1970. With sincere and dedicated efforts of the founder teachers, the Department started B. Sc. (Gen) in 1980. B. Sc. Mathematics (Hons) began in 1992.
Dr. Sudha Jain, Ms. Anshu Chotani and Ms. Neelam Bareja joined the Department in 1995. Later Ms. Charu Khanna (1996), Ms. Anju Rattan(1997) and Dr. Anju Gupta (1997) joined the Department.
Presently we have an excellent faculty of five Associate Professors and nine Assistant Professors (Ad- hoc) with Ms. Anju Rattan as the Teacher In- charge.
All along its journey of learning, this department has achieved great heights, especially under the leadership of erstwhile Principals, namely, Dr. Dua, Dr. Nirmal Kapil and Dr. Malti. Now under the constant guidance of our Principal Dr. Anula Maurya, this department has achieved far greater heights than before and students have shown excellence not only in academics, but also in various extracurricular activities.
This department aims at providing opportunities for students to explore areas of mathematics outside the classrooms and to enhance inter-student communication and co-operation. The goal is to enable students to express mathematical ideas more creatively and to develop their talent whilst making them confident, capable and responsible human beings. The department provides a platform for promotion of mathematical interests by hosting various useful events throughout the year, such as the following:
The strength of the department roots from the encouragement of the Principal and active participation of its members, be it teachers or students.
After graduating from the college the B.Sc Mathematics students can pursue academic P.G. Courses like M.Sc or M.S. followed by Ph.D or M.Phil. They can also take up BEd. Thus they can find a promising career in Research or Teaching field.
They can also take up Professional Courses like MCA or MBA. MCA is the best option for the B.Sc Mathematics graduates who wish to pursue their career in IT sector and MBA for those who wish to pursue their career in Management field.
The students can also explore areas like actuarial sciences, banking, civil services etc.
