The Department of Mathematics, Gargi College offers a three-year degree program B.Sc (Hons.) Mathematics. The department comprises of fifteen faculty members with the combination of experienced seniors and dynamic young members. Faculty members are specialised in different areas of pure, applied, financial mathematics, and Computer Science. Faculty members are involved in various research activities and their research papers get published in various Journals of National and International level. The Department is also involved in inter departmental teaching through other courses such as B.Sc (Hons.) Chemistry, B.Sc. (Hons.) Physics, B.Sc. Physical Sciences, B.A. (Hons.) Economics, B.A. (Hons.) Business Economics and B.A. (Prog), B.El.Ed, etc.
The curriculum for B.Sc. (Hons.) Mathematics is prepared by the University of Delhi keeping in mind the needs and aspirations of students of mathematics as well as the evolving nature of mathematics as a subject. The course holds a balance between pure and applied mathematics. There is an exceptionally broad range of topics covering: Linear Algebra, Metric Spaces, Statistics, Linear Programming, Numerical Analysis, Mathematical Finance, Coding Theory, Mechanics and Biomathematics in the course.
The main aspect of mathematics teaching is the application of it in the real world. To achieve this goal many papers in the course are based on computer programming and simulation techniques involving real-life problems. For this purpose, the college has a well-equipped computer lab having latest facilities along with several mathematical softwares like Wolfram Mathematica, R, Scilab, Latex, etc. The department emphasizes on training the students in such a way that they can opt for teaching, research or join industry after graduation. The department also supports the students to enhance their analytical skills by studying mathematics which helps them in cracking various competitive examinations of national and international levels. Students were made aware about various avenues which would be open after studying mathematics such as Education, Research, Management, Civil Services, Industry, Finance and many more. A student is required to complete 148 credits for completion of the course. The detailed syllabus is available on following link : http://maths.du.ac.in/Courses/BABSc/Maths(H)(2019-)LOCF.pdf
