NCU MATHEMACTIVE SOCIETYby NCU Northcap University NCU - Northcap University
Mathematics is not about number, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about UNDERSTANDING. - William Paul Thurston
“Mathemactive”, the Maths society of NCU (Formerly ITM University), was envisaged by Applied Sciences and Humanities Department in 2008 with a vision to promote and facilitate the knowledge and applicability of Mathematics in various fields and encourage the students to participate and drive out their inherent fears of mathematics being a ‘tough’ subject and subsequently increase their ‘mathematical quotient’ which forms the crux of most competitive exams as well.
Society’s major focus is to ADVANCE the understanding of the modern mathematics and the technical mathematics. The society PROVIDES professional development activities, information and educational resources for mathematics, increases participation of students from other institutes as well. The society aims to PROMOTE public information and general education about the nature of mathematics, discovery and results and implications of latest research. It also INFORMS students about new scientific knowledge, recent developments and emerging opportunities in mathematics research and their implications.
The society aims to organize events, seminars and workshops every year to extend the scope of the mathematics and provide the students an opportunity to learn new things. Faculty of Department of Applied Sciences along with a devoted team of students had come together to meet the institute’s vision of promoting mathematical research and benefit the lovers of mathematics. It also brings together the ideas of professors and facilitates the integration of research by encouraging improved and easy methods of learning.
The society conducts 10 events every year, 5 in odd and 5 in even semester with whooping participation of more than 200 students. The events of the society are multilevel quizzes cum games based on mathematics and mental ability. The students are judged on the basis of their skills and their mental ability to cope up with time. All the events of the society are backed with overwhelming responses with students from different streams and semesters. The students participate from all disciplines of engineering, management and science. The major achievement of the society is that no event is repeated and all the events are fresh, dynamic and path leading. The membership is opened once a semester and efforts are made to invite students from other colleges as well to participate in the events organized by Mathemactive Society
