The Mathematics Association organizes programs, activities, social events,
and seminars for the Postgraduate math community at IIT Bombay.
We are associated with the Mathematics Department at IIT Bombay.
The Mathematics Association of IIT Bombay was formed in 1978 as a student body organization aimed at bringing awareness, generate and promote interest, and facilitate communication among students of various age groups with an interest in Mathematics.
Targeted at motivating and encouraging student participation, this association aims to host activities at national level in the coming years. The quickly growing popularity of the association is not only a success for the association but for Mathematics itself.
The association is responsible for the different mathematical activities that takes place round the year in the department. Association tries to foster the development of mathematics inquisitiveness among students of IIT and students around Mumbai through various events and workshops.
The most important and widespread activity of the Association is the Mathematics Olympiad, a competitive examination, conducted at the end of January or the start of February each year.
The Association also organizes,a Popular Lecture Series by eminent Mathematicians. This allows a direct link between students and Mathematicians doing work at the very cutting edge. Recent developments and applications in technology never fail to interest a plethora of students. This highlights the importance of these lecture series.
Besides the Mathematics Olympiad, the association conducts Cipher, an annual inter-school mathematics quiz . This quiz has been widely acclaimed to be highly innovative and this is reflected by the rapidly growing participation in it. Hence, apart from promoting independent thinking, the association also inculcates the virtues of team spirit.
