About Mathematics Association
The Mathematics Association of IIT Bombay was formed in 1978 as a student body organization aimed to bring about awareness, generate and promote interest, and facilitate communication among students of various age groups with an interest in Mathematics. It has been very successful in identifying and nurturing young talent in Mathematics. Targeted at motivating and encouraging student participation, this association aims to host activities at national level in the coming years.
