In every arena of human activity and endeavor, whether in specialty areas or in plain daily living, mathematics plays an important and vital role in shaping and advancing civilization and the frontiers of science and technology. Mathematics is an abstract science and its abstractness finds application in the solution of numerous and diverse types of problems encountered in all branches of science, engineering, business, economics, etc., and in any problem that pertains to man and the universe. [T]he existing affinity between mathematics and the physical world calls for better discernment of the environment in which we live. Classroom instruction is one of the media by which this could be accomplished. This is the basic reason for arranging a departmental programme which lays emphasis on the usefulness and the utilitarian aspect of mathematics. This programme could also provide an avenue for students to be exposed to new and more mathematical ideas to enhance their ability to analyze problems and to think critically and creatively. In addition, bearing in mind that God did create this world with mathematical precision, it is incumbent for this programme to encourage students to do their academic task with finesse and accuracy. And whatever knowledge and skills they can acquire can be oriented towards the development and further development of their mental, spiritual and physical powers.
The Department sees as its mission the provision and advancement of a wholistic Christian quality education to the youth for better service to God and Mankind.
To offer quality education in Mathematics and Physics that will prepare the youths enrolled in our programmes to face the challenges of the 21st century and beyond with confidence.
The programmes offered by the department aims to achieve the following:
1. To provide qualified teachers for secondary schools and teachers’ colleges.
2. To prepare students to pursue careers in science, industry, engineering, business, economics and in physics and statistics and other mathematics related fields.
3. To develop in the students moral values which are important in their intended professional careers.
4. To prepare students for post graduate studies.
