Department of Mathematics and Information Technology
Mission Statement

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Information Technology at the Education University of Hong Kong!

Our primary goal is to nurture future generations to become quality educators and researchers in mathematics and information technology with passion, love and responsibility to ride on the challenges of the dynamic landscape of the 21st century. Towards this goal, we strive for excellence in teaching, research, and service. Many faculty members form research groups to conduct collaborative research which may involve undergraduates. Moreover, we bring innovative teaching methods and valuable learning opportunities into the classroom by incorporating emerging technologies such as dynamic mathematical apps, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality and augmented reality. Over the years, we won a number of major international innovation awards in education technology.

We have a strong networking with local teachers’ community through our involvement in teaching practice and engagement in research and development projects. We serve a number of key educational bodies such as the Curriculum Development Council (CDC), the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA), professional associations, and school boards. During an academic year, we organize many outreach events, such as study tours, mathematics and AI competitions, public lectures, monthly mathematics challenges, professional training workshops, and international conferences. Through these activities, our department has established strong networks with schools, businesses and organizations, and other institutions at local, regional and international levels to increase students’ exposure and make an impact in the world.
