Introduction

Originally, our department was entitled the Department of Mathematics and Science Education. In August, 1998, in order to strengthen mathematics and natural science teaching in primary schools, the department was divided into the Department of Mathematics Education and Department of Natural Science Education. The department was later renamed as the Department of Applied Mathematics on August 1, 2006.
