In education system across the globe, there is one constant subject, a language that is universally spoken: Mathematics. The department of Mathematics was established in the year 1964. Initially, mathematics was offered as one of the Discipline subjects in B.A. (Programme). Later on, B.Sc.(Hons.) Mathematics was introduced in the year 2006. At present, the department offers B.Sc.(Hons.) Mathematics to the students of all streams under UGCF-2022 based on NEP 2020. Besides the honours course, it is offered as a Discipline course in B.A. (Prog.) and General Elective course for other B.A.(Hons.) and B.Sc. (Hons.) courses.

The course structure allows the students to develop conceptual understanding via the use of advanced softwares such as Mathematica, R, Latex, TORA etc. The teaching methodology lays emphasis on interactive classes, skillful problem-solving techniques and uses various available e-resources.
“Affine”, the mathematics association organizes various lectures by eminent Professors throughout the year. An inter-college annual festival “Shoonya” is organized wherein several competitions related to Mathematics are held. In addition to it, annual newsletter “Mathpunch” is launched, which brings forth the creative talent of the students.
To motivate the students to excel in academics, the college awards Proficiency Prizes (for securing highest marks in each year), Silver Jubilee Merit Scholarship (for securing I, II or III rank at university level in Ist or IInd year) and Teachers Memorial Prize (for securing I, II or III rank at university level, all three years combined).
