Matheactive

NCU Mathemactive Society:

“Mathemactive”, the Maths society of NCU(Formerly ITM University), was envisaged by Applied Sciences and Humanities department in 2008 with a vision to promote and facilitate the knowledge and applicability of Maths in various fields and encourage the students to participate and drive out their inherent fears of mathematics being a ‘tough’ subject and subsequently increase their ‘mathematical quotient’ which forms the crux of most competitive exams as well.

This society concentrates on events related to Mathematics.

VISION

ADVANCE the understanding of modern mathematics and the technical mathematics by bringing together the ideas of professors of diverse background, by facilitating the integration of research directed at all levels of mathematical organization and by encouraging translational research to develop improved methods and easy ways.

PROVIDE professional development activities, information and educational resources for mathematics, increase participation of students from other institutes as well

PROMOTE public information and general education about the nature of mathematics’ discovery and results and implications of latest research.

INFORM students about new scientific knowledge, recent developments and emerging opportunities in mathematics research and their implications.

Menerva – The quizzing Club

OBJECTIVES:

At the grassroots level, the Quizzing Society aims to inculcate curiosity in students and encourage them to undertake the quest for knowledge. The Society aims to prepare all student members to be competent enough to face the fast-moving, competitive world by motivating them to participate in competitive examinations with confidence and emerge victorious.

Quizzes are different from GK Tests in the sense that they have the aspect of “work-ability” to them. This means that even a novice can attempt these quizzes and do well in them – this helps encourage and inculcate curiosity in the student. They promote sportsmanship and a healthy spirit of competition.

The Quizzing Society aims to unite interested individuals and provide them with a platform to practice quizzing in the pattern followed across India at the university level. As part of the society, we aim to train members and keep them up-to-date with the latest trivia and current affairs, so that we can represent the university at various quizzes held at the intra-university, inter-university, regional, national, and international levels.

BENEFITS OF JOINING AND OUTCOMES:

Students get to stay up-to-date with current events and get to express themselves in a new format. They also get to learn in-depth about any field they wish to know about.

They may also get exposure to participating in various quizzing contests around the Delhi-NCR region (as beginners) and outside Delhi, based on their performance in the society.

This will help them gain confidence, forge new bonds with fellow members, and gain knowledge which will help them in the long run (in interviews, in general development, etc.).

The quizzing society plans to conduct at least two events per semester, either independently, or in coordination with other clubs or societies as jointly conducted events. Each quiz will have slightly different patterns, but follows the same basic rules and structure.

Yoga Club

Introduction

Yoga, when we hear the word yoga, our very first perception is exercises or Asana and the second is, spirituality or rituals. But yoga is far beyond that. Yoga does not only mean doing Asanas and getting a fit and flexible body, that is just a side benefit. But the main aim of doing Yoga is calming and pacifying our mind. And making our body and mind work together in harmony.

Why?

And in today’s rushing environment, calm mind and fit body working according to the mind is the need of the hour. But we often do not know. In education institutes like ours, where faculties, students, management and every stakeholder give his or her heart and soul for the betterment of the University, I believe its my duty and University’s responsibility to take care of the whole round development of their stakeholders.  So that a teacher can teach better, a student can study better, management can manage better, sportsperson can play better and because of which university can grow better.

It would be one of its own initiatives, which will reflect the beliefs of The NorthCap University, about the whole round development of not only students, not only faculties but each and every stakeholder of the University
