Department of Mathematical Sciences

HISTORY OF THE PROGRAMME/SUB-DISCIPLINE/DISCIPLINE

The Department was established to produce B.Sc. graduates with the sole objective of providing solid ground for teaching and research in various areas of Mathematical Sciences, which will be relevant to the socio-political and economic development of the community in particular, and the state in general. It is also meant to provide manpower in different areas of Mathematical Sciences and for the grandaunts to be self employed.

This Department came into being during 2002/2003 session and was formally known as Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and hence offers two programmes; B.Sc Computer Science and B.Sc Mathematics. Professor M.Y. Balla, was the pioneer Head of Department. Subsequent heads are Prof. G.M. Wajiga (Feb.2004-Dec.2004), Dr. K. B.Yuguda (Jan.2005-Nov.2005), Mr. Chi E. Chi (Nov. 2005-July, 2006), Mr. I.P Onokebhagbe (July,2006-Feb.2008), Prof. F. W. O Saporu (Feb.2008 to Nov. 2008) and Mr. Donald, J.Z(Dec.2008- Date).The programmes have progressed satisfactorily in terms of students’ enrolment. Currently the programmes have graduated its first students in 2005/06 session,2006/07session,2007/08 session,2008/2009,…, Our graduates are performing well in their various endeavours.

(b) How staff are involved in the decision-making process and in general administration
Through regular and emergency meetings, work schedules are assigned to officers. Such officers, in there capacities as Exams Officer, Registration Officers, Time table Officer and SIWES Officer perform their duties in order to enhance the smooth running of the Departmental Programmes and also through Departmental Board meetings where academic matters are thoroughly discussed.
(c) Policy and practice on staff development.
Academic staff are encouraged to attend Post Graduate Studies under University fellowship, participate in conferences, workshops and organized departmental seminars. Staff are also encouraged to publish by writing journal articles or books for self development.
(d) Staff Promotion
After three years of satisfactory services, the University promotes academic staff based on publications, experience and qualification, while non- academic staff are assessed after every four years. Assessment for promotion is done through the filling of annual evaluation forms by each staff in line with University scheme of service and guideline on promotion of staff.
Students’ Welfare
(a) Handling of academic grievances Staff advisers are assigned to handle individual complaints and if not successfully handled, same are referred to the HOD.
(b) Student academic problems Assigned Academic Programme coordinators at different levels which are responsible for advising students on all academic matters.

Examination
Setting, conduct, evaluation schemes, moderation schemes-internal and external for degree examinations and issuance of results.
Questions and marking schemes are submitted through Exams officer and the Departmental board moderates them while for final year questions and projects, external examiner, who must at least be a Reader, is appointed for moderation.

Academic Atmosphere
Any policy adopted and practiced by the College/School/Faculty/Department in pursuit of academic standards and maintenance of academic atmosphere.
Academic Staff are encouraged to seek internal and external aid to develop themselves academically by attending seminars, workshop and higher degree courses.
Good quality students with minimum requirements are admitted through Pre-degree, JAMB, and Direct entry as specified by NUC. An attendance score of 75% is compulsory to qualify a student to write a particular examination paper.

Students are encouraged to form and/or affiliate to National subject Association with the view to encouraging student’s participation on extra curricular academic activities hence creating conducive academic atmosphere and in the process shun such vices as hooliganism and cultism.

ACADEMIC CONTENT: Existing Curriculum for the Programme/Sub-Discipline/Discipline
Attach to this Form, the complete and current prospectus which should include:
(a) Programme Title: B.Sc MATHEMATICS
(b) Programme/Sub-Discipline/Discipline /Philosophy and Objectives:

Philosophy
The philosophy of the department of Mathematical Sciences is aimed at developing the mind and impact theoretical and practical knowledge that will encourage self reliance of the individual and of the nation. The curriculum is also aimed, to assist the individual to understand, exploit and if need be change his environment.

Objectives
In conformity with the foregoing philosophy, the Department has the following objectives
(i) To provide basic knowledge needed for an understanding and analysis of problems related to the environment,
(ii) To equip students with analytical and quantitative skill needed for recognizing, defining problems and taking appropriate decision using scientific techniques,
(iii) To provide basic knowledge and skills that will sharpen the mind of the students so that they respond to career prospects in other fields and also be able to compete, in such, in a global market,
(iv) To develop in students leadership and interpersonal relation skill which are needed for the working environment.
(c) Admission Requirements
Minimum of five (5) credits including Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry/Geography. At least a pass in English. Entry into degree programmes through UME, Pre-degree and Direct entry.
(d) Programme/Sub-discipline/Discipline Structure to include period of formal Studies in the Universities, Industrial training, planned visit and projects: the course duration is four academic years.
The course duration is four academic years. Students of B Sc. Mathematics write projects in their chosen areas in the final year.
