Workshop on Teaching Mathematics for Engineering Students

Date: 30.10.2015

A one day workshop on ‘Teaching mathematics for engineering students’ was organized by the department of mathematics on 30.10.2015, in which 27 mathematics teachers as well as a few research scholars from several engineering colleges from all over Tamil Nadu took part.

The workshop commenced with an inaugural function, presided over by Dr Vijayalakshmi from VIT university, Chennai. The function began at 8.30 a.m. with a prayer song, invoking God’s blessings. Ms. S A Josephine, the head of the department of mathematics welcomed the gathering, followed by felicitations by the Director of LICET, Rev. Dr Francis Xavier SJ, the Principal, Dr Jose Swaminathan, and the Dean, Rev. Dr John Pragasam SJ.

The inaugural session was handled by Dr Vijayalakshmi from VIT University, Chennai on the topic, ‘Optimization Techniques’. It was interesting with very many life incidents as examples. The participants were very happy to learn the art of making their mathematics classes interesting to the students. The second session was lead by Dr Pavai from RMK engineering college, chennai. She dealt on the topic, ‘How to teach engineering mathematics interestingly’. It enabled the participants to infuse lots of day to day examples in their every day class room teaching.

The third session was dealt by Dr Shankar from Anna University, Chennai on the topic, ‘Teaching Calculus to the engineering students’. He covered the entire couse on Engineering Mathematics I. It was a kind of a revision for the participants. The fourth session was handled by Dr Indra Rajasingh from VIT University, Chennai. She dealt with the topic, ‘Fourier series and Fourier Transforms’. The session was so interesting with life time examples and models of Fourier series. The participants felt that the entire session was very useful with lots of new techniques and exmaples to teach Fourier series in a lively manner. The workshop came to a conclusion with a vote of thanks by Ms Kirupa of Mathematics department.
