Student Seminars
Each student in a class gave a minimum of two seminars one Technical and one General.
Based on assigned learning groups students should give seminars in seminar sessions.
Student Project
Agroup of 6 students of each II Year and III year MCAare given a Project either Application or System,
to analyze and implement in a semester.
Student Assignment
Questions picked up from previous question papers of in University exam and Campus recruitment are
given to students groups as assignments. The assignments submitted are corrected and thereby students
are given guidance in attempting typical questions.
Student Tutorials
The students are given programs in sessions monitored by faculties fromthe respective field of expertise.
The students in small groups are assisted to prepare themselves and to write logical and application
oriented programs.
Future Plans
1. Steps will be taken to improve the pass percentage by identifying the weak students and the subjects they
are falling back. Accordingly, special classes will be conducted for their improvement.
2. Attendance monitoring has to be done strictly with periodic warning given to those falling short of 75%.
3. A state level conference on latest trends is planned by the department in the next semester.
4. Adjunct courses to make students aware of the new technologies will have to be conducted.
5. Students are given mini projects to be supervised carefully by the faculty.
6. At least one technical visit has to be arranged for each batch in the coming semester.
7. Staff members have to be encouraged to pursue higher education.
8. Staff members will be deputed for National & International conferences for enhancing their technical
skills.

OBJECTIVE
Logic is the discipline that deals with the methods of reasoning. Logical reasoning is used in computer
science to verify the correctness of programs and to prove theorems. Inter relationship of set theory, and
logic are being discussed. In order for students to be able to read technical articles and books in computer
science, it is necessary for them to know something about predicate calculus.

5.2.1 OBJECTIVEANDRELEVANCE
The modern development in the field of not only management, commerce, economics, social sciences,
mathematics and so on, but also in our life likepublic services, defence, banking, insurance sector, tourism
and hospitality, police and military etc are dependent on a particular subject known as statistics.
5.2.2 SCOPE
Statistics play a vital role in enriching a specific domain by collecting data in the relevant field, analyzing
the data by applying various statistical techniques and finally making statistical inferences about the
domain.
5.2.3 PREREQUISITES
In the present world, statistics has almost a universal application. Government applies Statistics to make
the economic planning in an effective and a pragmatic way. The businessman plan and expand their
horizons of business on the basis of the analysis of the feedback data. Most of the research scholars of
today apply statistics to present their research papers in an authoritative mannar. Thus the list of people
using statistics goes on and on and on. Due to these factors it is necessary to study the subject of statistics
in an objective manner.
5.2.4 SYLLABUS O.U.
UNITI
OBJECTIVE
Statistical analysis therefore it is must to know about data collection technique including distinction of
primary data and secondary data and also to represent the data graphically using Histogram frequency
polygon. Collection of data plays the very important role for any.
SYLLABUS
Data validation and information abstraction: Methods of collecting dataefficiently, gathering information
fromdata charting
UNIT II
OBJECTIVE
Probability is a branch of Mathematics. In olden days it is applied to enhance the chances of winning in
different games of gambling. Further to achieve a target fixed for any activity, it is possible to know how
much percentage, the target fixed can be achieved. For unpredictable phenomena in the filed of business,
economics and social sciences or even in day to day life application of probability is indispensable.
SYLLABUS
Probability: Laws of probability, Probability distributions, Discrete equiprobable, binomial, poisson.
UNITIII
OBJECTIVE
It is an extension of probability when the activities are involved a continuous randomvariable. Continuous
random variable arise when deal with quantities which are measure on a continuous scale viz., speed of a
car, the amount of alcohol in a persons blood etc. The continuous Probability distribution is used in
No objects of value are worth risking the priceless experience of waking up one more day.

decision making analysis. Among all the continuous probability distribution normal distribution is most
important and it serves as the guiding instrument in Researches. It is indispensable tool for the analysis
and the interpretation of the data obtained by observation and experiment in Physical and Social sciences,
Medicine, Agriculture and Engineering
SYLLABUS
Continuous distributions: Rectangular, normal gamma and beta
UNITIV
OBJECTIVE
Different Statistical methods are used to find out the following:
i. Overall performance of the data available.
ii. To knowwhich activity is more prevalent in the data available.
iii. To findout average annual growthrate, Average distance traveled by different modes of convenience.
iv. Measures of dispersion is used to know the consistency of the data, comparison of different distributions
etc.
v. Kurtosis is one of the technique used in biological sciences.
vi. Skewness is applied to find out lack of symmetry in the distribution
SYLLABUS
Statistical methods: Frequency distributions mathematical expectation, moments, skewness and kurtosis.
UNIT V
OBJECTIVE
To determine the degree of relationship between any two relative variables namely viz., price and demand,
price and supply, crop yield and rainfall etc. The coefficient of determination is widely used in economic
analysis to know what percentage of any dependent variable depends upon the independent variable.
Regression technique is used to know the average relation between any two related variables and it is one
of the best forecasting technique. There is hardly no field without of application of sampling techniques. It
is widely used by most of the business organization while they are launching any New Product in the
market. In simply it can be stated that going in detail about the entire information on hand, by taking a
sample from the entire data it is possible to take a decision about the entire data under statistical enquiry.
