The department organizes various seminars , workshops and public lectures for its slow as well as advanced learners.The department organizes special lectures in mathematics for students of Biological sciences.The teachers of the department undergo rigorous training programmes for the benefit of its students. They incorporate different collaborative learning strategies in their teaching like:
● Project based learning is introduced and assigned 25 marks in applied component.
● Participative learning: Flip the class room (Round Robin, Think-Pair-Share etc)
● Participative learning: students are asked to deliver seminars on topics of their choice as a part of internal evaluation
● Problem solving methodology: Tutorials are part of internal evaluation. This methodology has proven to be useful in training students for competitive examinations.
The department promotes environment friendly practices by setting an example for its students. The department takes special efforts to incorporate paperless documentation. The department encourages its students by taking utmost care to create a plastic free environment.
