B.Sc Mathematics

Course Structure – B.Sc Mathematics

The Programme in Mathematics must include (1) Common courses, (2) Core courses,     (3) Choice Based Courses (4)Open Courses(5)Project (6) Complementary Courses.

During the First four Semesters the student must complete 10 common courses of which Six English courses are compulsory and common for all streams. The students can choose one language course from among French, Hindi and Malayalam. There will be 13 core courses. The student shall select any choice based course from the two courses offered by the Department.Open course may be offered in any subject and the student shall have the option to do courses offered by other departments other than Mathematics in the fifth semester. Every student has to do a project during the 6th semester. The topics for the project can be selected as early as the beginning of the 5th semester. Physics and Statistics are the Complementary Courses during the first four semesters.

Open course offered for other Departments
Department of Mathematics offers the open course ‘ Applicable Mathematics’ to the other streams during the fifth Semester.

The syllabi are framed in such a way that it bridges the gap between the plus two and post graduate levels of Mathematics by providing a more complete and logic frame work in almost all areas of basic Mathematics.

By the end of the second semester, the students should have

  • Attained a secure foundation in Mathematics and other relevant subjects to complement the core for their future courses.

By the end of the fourth semester,the students should have been

  • Introduced to powerful tools for tackling a wide range of topics in Calculus, Theory of Equations and Numerical methods.
  • Familiarized with additional relevant mathematical techniques and other relevant subjects to complement the core.

By the end of sixth semester, the students should have

  • Understood a range of topics in almost all areas of Mathematics including Analysis, Graph Theory, Calculus,Fuzzy Mathematics, Operations Research and Algebra.
  • Experienced independent works such as project, seminar etc.
