Physics and Mathematics was founded in 1935 as one of the three faculties of the Tashkent State Pedagogical Institute. Since 1968 the physical and mathematical faculties began to conduct its activities separately. And since 1999, in connection with the awarding university status have been combined in Physics and Mathematics. Over the years, the faculty ran R.Otazhonov, M.Zhdanov, S.Tursunov, B.Habibullaev, S.Hodzhaev, Sh.Maksudov, M.Saydamatov, A.Baydedaev, N.Dadadjanov, A.Hikmatov, H.Nazarov, M . Madirimov, M.Djoraev, U.Begimkulov, E.Saydamatov, Abdullayev B.Islamov, R.Turgunbaev, K.Djumaniyazov, D.I.Yunusova. Now the dean of the faculty is the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, associate professor Djabbarov Gayrat Farhadovich.
At the faculty were teaching career academics P.K.Habibullaev, Sh.A.Ayupov, Sh.Farmonov, R.Muminov leading scientists R.Otajonov (Honored Worker of Science of Uzbekistan), professor R.Mallin (R.Mallaboev), W.Makhsudov, Zh.Tashkhanova, M.Ziyahodjaev, N.Dadadjanov, I.Ismailov, R.Yunusmetov, B.Mirzahmedov, A.Baydedaev, E.Imamov, K.Nasriddinov. Currently, along with teaching conducted fruitful research and teaching and research work of leading scientists Uzbekistan I.Sattarov, M.Djoraev, M.Mamadazimov, J.O.Takhirov, R.Beshimov, U.Yuldashev, M.Madirimov, Abdullayev and others.
Physics and Mathematics prepares highly skilled professionals - teachers of physics, mathematics and computer science to specialized secondary and vocational education in the areas of undergraduate,"Mathematics and Computer Science","Mathematics","Physics and Astronomy","Methods of Teaching Mathematics,""Methods of teaching science ,"" Methods of teaching physics and astronomy,"and specializing in" Methods of Teaching Mathematics"," Information Technologies in Education"," The method of teaching physics,"" Methods of teaching astronomy."
In the 2012-2013 academic year, the faculty trained 43 graduate students and 934 undergraduate students.
The Faculty has four departments:
1). The department"General mathematics". Head of Department of Physics and Mathematics Sciences R. Beshimov;
2). Department"Methods of teaching mathematics ." Head of Department of Physical and Mathematical Sciences D. Davletov;
3). Department of"Methods of teaching physics and astronomy." Head of the Department PhD, associate professor H.M.Makhmudova.
4). The department of"Methods of teaching informatics." Head of the Department PhD, associate S. Tursunov;
Currently on the faculty at the main units are 76 full-time professors and lecturers. 12 of them - doctors of science, 29 - PhD, associate professors, 18 - senior teachers, 16 - teachers - assistants.
In the 2012-2013 school year, teachers, professors conduct research and development work on two fundamental projects:
1) F-2.2.8."Solar activity and coronal bright spots." Supervisor: Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences professor.I.Sattarov;
2) 4-F 27."The study of topological properties of some fundamental and covariant functors moving into the category of topological spaces." Supervisor: Doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, associate professor R.Beshimov.
Faculty of physics and mathematics of the Tashkent state pedagogical university named after Nizami, one of the oldest faculties is contributing to the entire system of public education, secondary vocational education. In 1935, the faculty of the institute (university) consisted of two departments: mathematics and physics departments. In the physics department of the faculty physics, general physics, electro-engineering, theoretical physics and physics teaching methods are taught. In the chair of the mathematics department of higher mathematics until 1939 T.N.Kari-Niyazi, Sh.T.Maksudov, M.Qodiriy, O.Karimiy and Suleymonovs had worked.
The department of Higher mathematics was separated into the department of mathematical analysis and geometry and elementary mathematics. In this department principles of modern algebra, number theory, geometry and geometric theory were taught.
In 1998 two faculties rejoined and were named the Faculty of physics and mathematics. U.Sh.Begimqulov, E.M.Saydamatov, R.Z.Abdullaev, B.Islamov, Q.Jumaniyozov, R.M.Turgunbaev, D.Yunusova were the deans of Physics and Mathematics faculty. Faculty is proud of the scientists who work in the country. In particular, R.K.Otajonov - Honored worker of science of the republic, leading academics and education veteran, M.S.Saydamatov – public excellence worker in education, T.Turdiev – public excellence worker in education, A.G'.Hikmatov – public excellence worker in education, labor veteran, medal of Labor glory of the Excellence in education, T.Rizaev – public excellence worker in education, M.Madirimov – have been awarded the title of Honored Worker of Education of Uzbekistan.
Graduators of the famous scientist, doctor of biological sciences professor, P.O.Hakimov is the head of the pediatric department of the Institute of Central Asia PhD Professor M.G.Xaliulin (deceased), PhD Professor B.M.Mirzahmedov, PhD Professor M.Jo'raev, A.Abdukadirov, N.Sherboev, T.Tulaganov (deceased), Sh.Ahrorov, M.Mamadazimov, F.Zakirova doctors of physics and mathematics, Abdukhakimov (deceased), R.Beshimov, K.Xudayberganov, A.Zaitov, D.Yunusova and others.
At present, the Department of Physics and methods of teaching concludes: methods of teaching mathematics, the teaching of mathematical analysis, computer science and information technology in education.
