Who We are?
Stamford University Math_Circle (SUMC) emerged as a study circle on 25 January, 2013 by the Department of Natural
Sciences, though the journey began in the mid of 2011 as Stamford Math Olympiad Team. Initially, the core objective
was to prepare the students for university levels’ Math Olympiad competition in our country. Our team first
participated in the Inter University Math Olympiad 2011, organized by the Bangladesh Mathematical Society (BMS).
After this, Stamford Math Olympiad Team is regularly participating in various math competition arranged in different
public or private universities.
Early in the current year 2013, the team has just come back from 4th
National Undergraduate Mathematics Olympiad 2012 organized by Bangladesh
Mathematical Society (BMS). Stamford Math Olympiad Team is one of very few teams
from private universities, which bravely fought against very strong opponents
like teams from BUET, CUET, DU, CU, NSU, etc. Our math warriors returned from
that event with the confidence of doing better. A feeling—our students can go to
the ace if we guide them properly.

Currently, Mr. Noor-A-Alam Siddiki, acting Chairman of this department, is
working as the Chief Advisor and the Chief Coordinator & Mentor of SUMC is Mr.
Dewan Ferdous Wahid, Lecturer of Mathematics.
What is Our Purpose?
Stamford University MATH_Circle runs with the motto that “Think
Math”. Our epic purposes are-
To boost the analytical capability of our students
To achieve one of the top ten positions in the next National Undergraduate
To organize Inter-University Math Olympiad regularly at Stamford
University Bangladesh from 2014
To include ‘Programming Contest’ along with the Math Olympiad from 2015
5. Finally, to extend these competitions for students from school and college
levels with a view to boosting up the fame of our university

What are We Doing Now?
After reforming, Stamford University MATH_Circle (SUMC) is
arranging one weekly class from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm regularly. The Chief
Coordinator and Mentor of SUMC, Mr. Dewan Ferdous Wahid, mentor these classes.
Here, we focus on higher level of mathematical analysis and its application in
real life. We are trying to increase the analytical capacity of our students as
well as to prepare them for any undergraduate level math contest. Sometimes we
invite our advisory members from both home and other institutes to deliver
lecturer on a particular topic. For instance, Mr. Sahidul Islam, Lecturer of ECE
in East-West University, Dhaka delivered a speech on ‘Fundamental of
Functions and its Application’ on 28 January 2013. Moreover, we are hopeful
that Dr. Nur-e-Mostafa, Asst. Professor in the Dept. of Natural Sciences, SUB will be going to offer a lecture on ‘Application
of Differential Equations in Real Field’ in September/October.
Since, students in
our country most often consider mathematics as a tough and boring subject
matter, SUMC is always trying to change this kind of view among our students. We
are representing mathematics as an extremely fun and interesting topic. To
attract the present ‘NetGen’ (internet generation), we have created a
facebook page and a website. Our facebook page has more than 130
student-followers. We have been posting different interesting topics,
mathematical problems, book review, helpful website information etc. regularly
on our page wall and the students are actively joining in the discussions by
arguing, question-answering etc.
SUMC is constantly
attracting fresh, interested minds to be included in our study circle. Our
faculty members are always inspiring students to join SUMC. From next week, we
are arranging a display board to let all know our regular activities. Now many
interested students are joining this study circle, however, a handful of them
are truly interested due to our limited capacity.

An Initiative to Stamford Inter-University Math Olympiad
Stamford University MATH_Circle is also planning to
organize Inter-University Math Olympiad regularly at our university from 2014.
For making it a success, we have already formed a committee, consisting of
teachers from different departments, to study the different aspects to arrange a
competition in our university such as suitable time, fund collection, standard
question setting, etc. The committee members are -
Dr. Nur-e-Mostafa, Asst. Professor, Dept. of NS, SUB (Head of the
Dewan Ferdous Wahid, Lecturer, Dept. of NS, SUB and Chief Coordinator of
Md. Ashrafuzzamman Khan, Lecturer, Dept. of CEN, SUB
Mohammad Raihanul Islam, Lecturer, Dept. of CSE, SUB
Md. Khalilur Rahman, Lecturer, Dept. of NS, SUB
What are Our Achievements?
Stamford University MATH_Circle (SUMC) has nearly 30 registered student
members in nearly half a year. In the last trimester, in an average 10 to 15
students attended in every class. It has already created an attention among our
students about the necessity of developing mathematical ability in both
theoretical and application areas. Pleasantly, we observe that some of our
student has definitely increased their analytical and computational skills than
they had previously.
students have participated in three national undergraduate and one EWU math
Olympiads. They have done their best in those competitions. Yet, we have to
prepare more consciously to reach the ace.
Our small, fun but active and dedicated study circle…
We Need Supports…
Stamford University MATH_Circle is run as a voluntary work by our faculty
members. There is no registration/membership fee for student to attend the study
circle. Therefore, most often we are facing problems regarding managing travel
and registration expenses to send our students along with accompanying teachers
to different competitions. Lack of fixed classroom is another major problem.
Surprisingly, with enough enthusiasm from the students, we managed to continue
classes at our garden. Again, the students especially who are yet to be
motivated to join our circle are deprived of display board to present our
activities and interesting ‘Problem of the Week”. Therefore, we will appreciate
highly if our university authority kindly provide following supports:
- 1. To endow us with a display board so that our
activities can be represented properly
- 2. To make a fixed classroom available from 4 pm-
6 pm for one weekly class
- 3. To support students along with associated
faculty member financially to attend the different competitions
registration fees, transportation etc.)
