Mathematics

The department of mathematics was started in the year 1960. Prof. A.G. George was in charge of the department.  The department was started with the major objective of equipping  student teachers with necessary skills and competencies to become  effective teachers of mathematics at secondary level. The department provides adequate training to student teachers to develop good teaching skills, to transact the secondary school mathematics curriculum effectively, to prepare innovative teaching learning materials, to create the general awareness of student teachers in mathematics, to become proficient in modern innovative strategies suitable for stimulating and maintaining interest in learning mathematics which seems to be difficult and boring for students. The department has a good mathematics laboratory suitable for teaching/ learning mathematics up to higher secondary level. The class is equipped with interactive board and desktop computer with internet facility.
