Associate Prof. Md. Abul Hossain, Acting Head of the Department of Mathematics, Dhaka College

Mathematics is the queen of science. It is also called the nature of science. For the development of logical capability and training there is no other education replacing mathematics. According to C.D. Oakley-Through countless dimensions riding high the winds of intellectual adventure and fitted with the test of discovery, the mathematician track the heaven of harmony and eternal variety. There is not wholly unexpected surprise, but surprise nevertheless, that mathematics has direct application to the physical world around us. Mathematics, in a wilderness of tragedy and charge, is a creature of the mind, born to the cry of humanity in search of an invariant reality, immutable in substance, unalterable with time. Mathematics is crystallized clarity, precision personified, beauty distilled and rigorously submitted. The life of the sprit is a life of thought, the ideal of thought is truth; everlasting truth is the goal of mathematics.
