Departmental  Objectives : At the end of the first year course in Mathematics , the student should be  able to:

Knowledge      :Acquire  the  basic  mathematical concepts  which  will  later  be  useful  in  its application  to  medical  sciences.

Skill      :Apply  the  knowledge  of  mathematics  in  solving  the  problems.

Attitude      1.  Developed  skills  in  computing  methods  and  techniques  associated  with   information  on  practical  work  and  research.

                   2.  Achieve  a  habit  of  going  through  a  process  of  logical  thinking  by training  in  mathematical  reasoning  and  thus  make  correct                                     decisions suitable  to  circumstances.

                  3.  Attain  basic skills  in  mathematical  modeling  and  interpretation  of  results in  medical  sciences.
