From the hurried arithmetic that we perform in our daily lives, to the exacting calculations of science and technology, mathematics shapes and influences nearly every object around us. As it is very well said, “A great discovery solves a great problem but there is a grain of discovery in the solution of any problem”. A student of honours course in mathematics is gradually trained in such logical and mathematical techniques that there is a good chance that mathematics will become ‘something’ for the student: a hobby or a tool of his profession or his profession or a great ambition. With this very aim, the B.Sc (Honours) Mathematics syllabus provides training in such diverse mathematical disciplines like algebra, analysis, vector calculus, statistics, differential equations, mechanics, and computer programming. A mathematics graduate has a wide variety of career options in areas like computer applications, business administration, statistics and operational research, banking and insurance sector, civil and statistical services.
