The history of department begins in 1934 due to opening Mining and smelting institute there was organized department of "high mathematics and theoretical mechanics".
The first head of department in 1934-1935 was Volovik V.I. Then in 1935 it was Ermek Alimkhan graduate of the Tomsk polytechnical institute. In 1937-1941 and 1943-1952 the department was headed by docent Starkov N. S.
In 1941-43 department was managed by famous scientist, doctor of physics and mathematics sciences, professor Akhiyezer N. I. Continuously department was headed in different years by : in 1952-1962 professor Gorshin S. I., in 1962-1972 – associate professor Haymuldin O. M., in 1972-1979 – docent Kalizhanov U. K., in 1979-2000 – professor Khayrullin E. M.
In 1995 «Applied mathematics» department was opened and headed by doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor Sakabekov A. S. In 1999 the department was taken the status of the releasing department and began preparation in the specialty: "Interdisciplinary applied mathematics".
In July, 2000 «Applied Mathematics» and «High mathematics» departments were integrated into "Mathematics" of Natural and humanitarian institute of al-Mashani. The first head of department became doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor Sakabekov A. S.
In 2002-2004 department was managed by doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor Tungatarov A. B. and in 2004-2016 professor Satybaldiyev O. S.
At present, chair of the department of «Mathematics» is candidate of physico-mathematical sciences, docent Keltenova R. T.
The department prepared and published textbooks and manuals in kazakh and russian languages, authors such as Satybaldyev O.S., Bozhanov E.T., Khayrullin E.M., E.A. Kasymov, Aubakir S.B., Aidos E.Zh., Haseinov K.A., Zhanbyrbaeva U.B.
The researchal work of department is maintained close contact with ITAM, IKI, ANRK, Kazakh - National University named after Al-Farabi, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Steklov’s Mathematical Institute, Computing Center SB RAS (Novosibirsk), Institute of Applied Mathematics of Keldysh (Moscow). Institute of Problems in Mechanics. Teachers of the department actively make presentations at scientific conferences and international symposiums.
Teachers of the department annually participate in the contest "The best teacher of the year" and win government grants MES. The following teachers were winners: E.A. Kasymov in 2006, Haseinov K.A. - 2005, Aidos E.Zh.- 2006, Otarbayev J.O. - 2006, Satybaldyev O.S. - 2007, Khayrullin E.M.-2009. repeatedly won grants.
In 2007 in the department was opened new specialty 050705 "Computer and Mathematical Modeling". Graduates receive the academic degree of Bachelor of engineering and technology.
Currently the department has 42 teachers, among them: professors – 2, Ph.D., associate professors – 23, PhD, Senior lecturer -2, Senior lecturer without scientific degree -4, lecturers without a degree -4, assistants-7.
