ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Initiation and Brief Overview

Mathematics as a subject was introduced at the undergraduate level in Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Vivekananda Vidyabhavan from 1962.Students of the Department participate in open book tests, group discussions, assignments and PowerPoint presentations. At present, the Mathematics Department has a two-member faculty with one SACT teacher and one monastic faculty.

Vision and outlook

We try to make our students aware about the curriculum which strives to equip them with the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind that are essential to understanding and enjoying the importance and beauty of mathematics. As students engage with the curriculum, they may incorporate their prior experience and existing mathematical understanding, and then integrate the new ideas they learn into their daily lives.We focus on providing mathematical confidence and overall development of our students so that they make connections to other subjects, explore the world, and later pursue further studies.

Methods of teaching

Board work is very important for this subject.

Apart from classroom lectures or the chalk and talk method, the Department uses ICT based classes such as PowerPoint presentations, to stimulate learning interests.

To enhance their learning interest Movies related Mathematics & Mathematicians are shown in the computer.

Regular assessments through written classwork and class-tests ensure that the students are well prepared for their final end-semester examinations.

Infrastructure

The Department has its own sitting room for the teachers and a library for both the teachers and the students.

A degree in math is a professional pathway for those interested in solutions and solving real-world problems. It’s an important discipline to study because many roles require a basic or advanced understanding of mathematical concepts.

 

Course  Outcome

 

Semester Paper Course specific outcome
1 MA-1,Algebra  1.Algebra is Faster Than “Basic” Math. It helps us solve problems more quickly and easily than we could otherwise. Algebra also opens up whole new areas of life problems, such as graphing curves that cannot be solved with only foundational math skills.

2. Algebra is Necessary to Master Statistics and Calculus. While learning one kind of math to learn more kinds of math may not be an immediately satisfying concept, statistics and calculus are used by many people in their jobs. Calculus helps us describe many complex processes, such as how the speed of an object changes over time.

3· Algebra Can Be Useful in Life Outside of the Workplace. For example, algebra can be helpful in making financial decisions such as picking a health care plan or even for choosing a cell phone plan.

4· Algebra Reinforces Logical Thinking

 

2 MA-2,Calculus In mathematics,calculus is used:

1. To find the rate of change of a quantity with respect to others.

2. In case of finding a function is increasing or decreasing functions in a graph

3. To find the maximum and minimum value of a curve

4.To find the approximate value of small change in a quantity

5. Real-life applications of differential calculus are:

6.Calculation of profit and loss with respect to business using graphs

7. Calculation of the rate of change of the temperature

8. Calculation of speed or distance covered such as miles per hour, kilometres per hour, etc.

Mathematics Department uses the following methods of continuous evaluation to judge students learning & understanding of the study materials taught in the classes:

1.Tests: It is a most popular tool for collecting data for our student’s evaluation. We conduct  three types of tests.

  1. a) Monthly test
  2. b) Surprise test
  3. c) Oral test

2.Questionnaire: A systematic compilation of questions are formed to judge the students understanding of the topic.

3.Assignment

4.Self reporting techniques: Our students provide information about their feelings, cognitions (i.e. Thoughts) & weaknesses on the topics taught in the classes. Thus, after disclosing themselves to us we try to explain them the topic more easily & interestingly.

Apart from these regular classwork, homework & assessment tests are also major part of this continues evaluation process.

Breif description of event and Programme outcome:

The students are made aware with different examples of how mathematics helps us in many ways in our daily life.They were informed  with examples that how  maths is involved in figuring out distance ,time& cost for travel;understanding loans for cars,trucks,homes etc.;shopping for the best price;balancing the checkbook;understanding sports results & statstics; preparing food;household budgeting;playing an instrument;crafts such as sewing etc.It was also discused that how our universe can be understood through the language of mathematics.The world is interconnected,everyday maths shows these connections & possibilities.In todays time,it is impossible to live without mathematics.The Golden Ratio which is needed to achieve symmetry & beauty was discussed. A person is thought to be attractive if the length of their face divided by the width of their face equals 1.618.It was also explained by mathematics on that day.

The interest of the students in maths has increased noticeably and the seats are filled as soon as the portal is opened in the next value add on course on Mathematics in Daily Life. Arts based students have taken classes very attentively. Everyone has done all class work, home work and assignments with great interest. Most of the students got very good marks in the final evaluation.

The Mathematics department offers general course for CBCS system and minor course for new NEP system to the students. As education is fundamental right, the institution practices significant strategies and scientific techniques to benefit both the advanced learners and slow learners in the college. Advanced Learners are those students who are ahead on the learning curve and are identified based on the performance in class room, class test and end-sem exam. They are more potential with their comprehension, retention, memory, critical thinking, problem solving ability. These students are in a great extend gifted and talented than the others in the class. These students can take up higher level learning and academic responsibilities. They can bring some new concepts, method and strategies for solving problem, and also can take the leadership in the teaching learning activities. To meet the advanced technical know-how of advanced students following special activities are conducted –
• i. Individual academic counselling for carrier planning is done by concerned subject teacher
• ii. Doubt clearance session after classroom session
• iii. Guiding the students for JAM, NET and other Competitive Examinations.
Slow learners are those who find it difficult to understand the lessons and may have difficulties in their
comprehension, retention, reproduction and integration. They lag behind with the academic life. They
may fail in exams or will score only poor grades. They may fail in articulations and critical reflections.
Their motivation levels also may be poor and may find it difficult to adjust with the teaching learning
process. The poor performance may not be a sign of the poor capacity or talent but may be due to
inappropriate teaching methods, poor family situations, inadequate motivations and supports,
unscientific learning practices or even the inability to converse in an unfamiliar language. These
students need special attention and interventions to make their learning activity more enriching and
effective. To meet the need of slow learners following special activities are conducted –
• i. They are provided with extra classes for improvement and achievement
• ii. The Department and individual teachers help the slow learners by giving proper guidance
and support to them.
• iii. Organize bridge classes and remedial programmes for them.
• iv. Conduct extra classes for the difficult topic in the curriculum.
• v. Bilingual explanation and discussions are imparted to the slow learners after the class hours
for better understanding.
• vi. Provision of simple and standard lecture notes/course materials
• vii. Getting the support of the advanced learners to the slow learners in making their learning
process more participatory and interesting.

R.K.S.M.V.V is a place where I have discovered myself. It reminds me of a family who has touched and moulded my life. I would like to recommend everyone to be a part of this institution. It will surely make one ready to deal with the professional world.

 

Testimonial by Sayani Das:

When I came to this college, I was introduced with the hostel life for the first time. I was a hosteller for one month. Back then, adjusting to a new hostel culture seemed tough for me. But I gathered new experiences to cherish forever. I learned some of the most valued lessons, being a student of this college, like, study-building habits, maintaining discipline, which are worthwhile for life. I am grateful that I belong here.

My name is Sohini Sadhukhan. I completed my graduation in economics from RKSMVV in 2023 and l’m proud to say that I was a student of RKSMVV, where I learned all the necessary skills and gained knowledge to sustain in the professional world. My experience at RKSMVV had been wonderful. Environment of our college is really different from other college. The environment provided more positive thing in me. We had always been fascinated by the natural beauty of our college. Every teacher of our college is very supportive and our respected Principal Mataji was always been by our side as our guide and still is today. I can say RKSMVV had made me a better person. It had helped me develop a positive attitude towards my studies and discover more about myself. I am really thankful to all my respected teachers and our Principal Mataji for helping me in building my career.
