History of the Department "Mathematics and MTM"
Department of "Mathematics and Methods of teaching Mathematics" was founded in 1967 in Zhambyl Pedagogical Institute. In the early years the department was headed by K. Abdulgafarov, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences., Associate Professor.
By the beginning of the 1968-1969 academic year the Department "Mathematics and Physics" was divided into two separate departments : Mathematics and Physics. After that, the department of "Higher Mathematics" was created, the head of the department was an experienced representative of public education I. Pak . In 1969, along with the department of "Higher Mathematics" the department of "Algebra and Geometry" was formed and headed by T.T.Taubaev , an experienced teacher of Mathematics of high school.
In 1970, the head of the department of "Higher Mathematics" was elected K.K.Nagmetzhanov, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical sciences, Associate professor.
In 1974, the department of "Higher Mathematics" was renamed to "Mathematical analysis and the Theory of Functions." In 1985-1986 the Department of "Algebra and Geometry" was headed by M . Muratbekov, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical sciences, Associate professor.
Those years in the department a special course on Functional Analysis was taught by the rector of the institute professor M.Otelbaev. Now he is an academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Kazakhstan, winner of the State Prize of the Republic of Kazakhstan, famous Kazakh Mathematician . According to his assistance and guidance those years Physics and Mathematics classes were formed at the regional boarding school named after S. Makarenko (now the Kazakh-Turkish High School), and Urban Seminar "Functional Analysis and its Applications" known all over the country began to work . Now for more than 26 years this workshop has successfully continued its work under the supervision of Professor M. Muratbekov.
At present the staff of the department consists of two doctors, six candidates of sciences , four senior teachers, one teacher and one assistant. Since September 2010, the department of "Mathematics and MTM" is headed by Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor M. Muratbekov. He is well-known scientist in the country and abroad, currently in Taraz his school is formed. In 2007, Professor M.Muratbekov was conferred the title "The best teacher of the higher educational institutions of Kazakhstan."
The famous scholars and experts from leading universities and research centers of Kazakhstan and abroad are invited to conduct the special courses and to supervise Master's theses . They are : a professor at Moscow University and L. Gumilev State Eurasian National University; a laureate of the State Prize of the Republic of Kazakhstan, academician M. Otelbaev ; head of the department of the Eurasian National University, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor K. Ospanov; professor at the Free University of Berlin, Heinrich Beger; professor of the University of Friendship of Peoples (Moscow), Doctor of Sciences G.A.Kalyabin ; head of the laboratory "Differential Equations" of the Institute of Mathematics of RK NAS ; professor D.S.Dzhumabaev and other leading scientists.
Also, the department established a close academic and creative connection with MSU, University of Novosibirsk, and Berlin, University of Friendship of Peoples (Moscow).
At the department great attention is paid to the organization of the research work of teachers. A long-term plan of research is developed. Basically, all the members of the department are involved in the implementation of a state budgetary topics under the guidance of Professor M. Muratbekov.
