The General Education Program at HKBU provides a strong foundation for well-rounded university education with the goal of promoting individual development. The Department of Mathematics currently offers several GE courses at Level 1 (Quantitative Reasoning) and Level 2 (Science, Technology and Society). Also, Level 3 (Service-learning) courses are under preparation and will be launched next academic year.
The General Education Numeracy Team was formed in 2009 with the support of a Teaching Development Grant. The team members cover a wide array of backgrounds to on one hand maintain the smooth functioning of instructors' teaching and on the other hand offer face-to-face support and consultation for students’ learning of all kinds of numeracy related GE courses at all levels.
Quantitative Reasoning is one of the categories of Foundational Courses in General Education. All students are required to take one 3-unit course in this category. The Department of Mathematics offers the following courses in this category:
Science, Technology and Society is one of the themes of Interdisciplinary Thematic Courses in General Education. All students are required to take two 3-unit courses under any one or two of the themes including this theme. The Department of Mathematics offers the following courses in this theme:
Matlab's m-files, zip format, size: 6kb
SPSS's data files, zip format, size: 742kb
