Pawle who worked as a HOD has joined the University department of Mumbai University as a faculty.

 

Department of Mathematics has courses at undergraduate level with entire Mathematics for third  year  in  Science stream while in Commerce stream Mathematical and Statistical Techniques is taught at first year level.   Presently, the department has five faculty members and about 720 students

 

     The  Department has organized two days state level workshop on “Application of Computer Aided System to Mathematics Teaching” sponsored by UGC and also organized a seminar jointly with Vijnan Bharati  on ” Journey of Mathematics in India” to celebrate 125th Birth Anniversary of great Mathematician Shri. Shrinivas  Ramanujan in the National year of Mathematics.

 

 One of our students Ms Divya Revankar showed exceptionally  all round  performance ,she stood First in Mathematics in University examination and overall seventh rankat University .Also she won Bronze Medal in Karate at South Asian Games  .Every  year our students attend MTTS and  miniMTTS  programme conducted by National Board of Higher Mathematics. 

 

The College  Library has number of books on various topics in Mathematics. Every year department purchases books as per requirement of syllabus as well as reference books  for  teachers and students.

 

Department has well equipped Computer Laboratory with   softwares  required as per syllabus and  has Mathematics Laboratory.   

 

Students of the department has bright future as they   could secure jobs in   IT companies ,Banks ,Insurance Companies ,Schools and Colleges  .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About the Subject

Faculties of Mathematics department are required to teach two papers at first year ,three papers at second year and four papers at third year level covering  topics like Calculus ,Algebra ,Topology, Discrete Mathematics, Complex and Real Analysis and Number Theory  in Science Stream while in Commerce Stream we  teach Mathematical and Statistical Techniques at first year.

 

 

 

Mathematics is one of the important subjects for Science as well as Commerce students .It helps students  to improve their analytical skills and Quantitative techniques, Many organizations ,Institutes and companies require persons with good mathematical background .

 

 

 

Our faculties apart from  usual teaching ,   encourages students to use library books , different mathematical softwares  also guides students for various competitions such as Madhava Mathematics Competition ,Seminar Competition  ,Quiz Competitions etc. Every  year our students attend MTTS and  miniMTTS  programme conducted by National Board of Higher Mathematics which helps them to  understand  their basic cocepts.

 

 

 

Applied component subject   i.e. Computer Programming and Systems  Analysis  helps students to get jobs as well as helps  them in the preparation of competitive  exams.

 

 

 

Many of our students get opportunity to secure jobs through campus placements in Companies like Wipro , Patani and Infosys etc.

Ms.Pramodini M. Sawant
Associate Professor

I have been working in sathaye college, since 1989. I have been teaching to F.Y.B.Sc., S.Y.B.Sc. & T.Y.B.Sc., F.Y.B.Com. & T.Y.B.A.[ Economics]. At present I am Associatte Professor teaching Mathematics - I, III, IV to the students of F.Y., S.Y. & T.Y. B.Sc.

Eventhough, I have done my M.Sc. In Applied Mathematics. I have not been able to work further in this area due to nature of my current teaching because a pure Mathematics is a syllabus for the classes I am teaching as per Mumbai University. However, this has provided me the opportunity to deveolope newer interest in Pure Mathematics. I plan to continue to focus these areas and get deeply involved. I constantly update pure  Mathematics by  attending various work shops and courses in Mathematics organised by Mumbai University Maths Department. I take extra efforts to bring students to the level of degree course as now a days we are getting students of poor knowledge in Mathematics. For this, we take tutorials, one to one communication with the students in doubt solving sessions and Remedial Coaching Training to take care of students weak in the subject. 

My aim is to create awareness about the inovative use of Mathematical software among Mathematics students. 

WORKSHOP /CONFERENCES & SEMINARS ATTENDED:

             1) Seminar on "JOURNEY OF MATHEMATICS OF INDIA" held on 17th Aug.2012.

              2) National Conference on "TOPICS IN COMMUTATIVE ALGEBRA" held during

                  24 - 25 Jan.2013.

             3) Workshop on T.Y.BSc Mathematics examination pattern & revised syllabus as

                 per CBGS held on 4th july 2013.

             4) Workshop on "Indian Women and Mathematics,IWM-2013 during the period
