Society

The Department of Mathematics has a vibrant  society “RamanuGEN” which was formed in July 2014. As the name suggests, the society believes in building mathematical skills like the great Indian mathematician Srinivasa Aiyangar Ramanujan, with the ideas and minds of new generation students.

Activities

The Department of Mathematics organized the following events in the academic year 2015-todate:

  • A special talk on “Career Opportunities in Actuarial Science” by Mr. Akshay Chauhan having a rich experience of 5 years in teaching Actuarial Science (Actuation, Satya Niketan) and 3 years of working as an Analyst in a Multinational company on 6th August 2015.
  • A Counseling Session on “Higher Education prospects for Mathematics and Statistics students after Graduation” by Manoj Karnatak, Director of the Maths Panache Institute, having its branches at Satya Niketan, Rajouri Garden, North Campus and Gurgaon on 24th August 2015.
  • The “RamanuGEN” Society of Department of Mathematics organized an Inter-College Mathematics Festival “ArchNet-2015” on 17-18 September 2015. All the events included in this fest were infused with ideas of Mathematics and use of Technology. The participants had to use their ARCH mind together with proper NETworking to come out as a winner. Apart from the events like IPL Bidding, Quiz, Play Station, Ad Mad, Extempore, Doodle, Chess, Treasure Hunt, Snap That and PowerPoint Presentation, various stalls were set up by different departments and societies of our college (and other colleges) which attracted the audience in abundance. The main attraction of the fest was a Skit on the former President of India, Late Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam by the students of the Department of Mathematics which was appreciated by all.
  • Add-On Course: The Department of Mathematics conducted a 10-week Certificate Course on “Working with LaTeX” to empower the students with the knowledge of “LaTeX,” a document preparation system which is highly recommended for reports, PhD thesis, publications, papers and books in many fields, including Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Statistics, Economics and Political Science.A total of 39 students across various disciplines like Mathematics, Statistics, Commerce and Economics enrolled in the Certificate Course, along with three faculty members, two from Ramanujan College and third from SRCC. The registration fee for the course was Rs. 250/- and the classes for the same commenced from 20 August 2015 every Thursday at 2:00 PM.

    The curriculum for the Certificate Course can be broadly divided into 3 categories: (i) Document classes, fonts, layout; (ii) Environments; (iii) Mathematical Concepts. All the lectures were accompanied by practical sessions on Laptops with hands-on experience and regular assignments were given to the participants after each class. The qualifying examination (which was held on 5 November 2015) for the certificate course was cleared by 22 candidates.
