EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY 


"Statement on
Teaching and Research Interests"
The goal of
education is to develop authentic individuals who
exercise freedom of choice, take responsibility for their actions,
solve social problems and create a better world. The philosophy
of my teaching also lies in these facts. The goal of my teaching
is to create successful independent and selfdisciplined learners,
who could set challenges and solve problems. These individuals
should be able to develop inquisitive mind, apply critical thinking
skills, and take action also. The goal of any research is to solve
some real world social problems and create a better world. The
goal and philosophy of my research also lies in these facts.
I have a strong interest in and commitment to research in
mathematics, statistics, mathematical sciences, and math & stat
education. I have special interest in interdisciplinary and
collaborative research. I have research interests in the field of
Numerical Analysis, Functional Analysis, Topology,
Linear Algebra, Matrix Theory, Mathematical Modeling,
Special Functions, Statistics, History of Mathematics,
Curriculum Development, and
Mathematics Education.
