Faculty of Mathematics was founded in 1972 on the basis of physical and mathematical faculty of pedagogical Institute.

The first mathematicians of Karaganda were prepared physical and mathematical faculty of the Teachers' Institute, which was opened in 1944 and became the third faculty of the Institute. Great contribution to organization of mathematics education was introduced candidate of pedagogical sciences, docent S.B.Baymurzin who from 1952 to 1972 was rector of Pedagogical Institute, in 1967-1969 he was head of chair of Higher Algebra, in 1972-1976 he was head of chair of mathematics teaching methods. Taking these positions Seytkali Baymurzinovich paid much attention to young teachers not only in determining the direction of their scientific work, but also supported by directing training in graduate school, providing internships and sabbaticals.

Therefore in 1972, at the organization of the faculty the major part of staff were young teachers, including teachers invited from different universities of the Republic: of 30 teachers only 6 teachers had academic degrees and titles. The first dean of the faculty was appointed T.S.Smatov. Initially, 5 chairs functioned: mathematical analysis, differential and integral equations, higher algebra, higher geometry, mathematics teaching methods. Their first heads were the candidates of physical and mathematical sciences, docents M.A.Perevertun, A.I.Iglikov, T.G.Mustafin, Senior Lecturer N.T.Mochernyuk and candidate of pedagogical sciences, docent S.B. Baymurzin.
