Department of Public Mathematics
The predecessor of the Department of Public Mathematics is the Mathematics Teaching and Research Section of Beijing Business College and Beijing Institute of Light Industry. In 1999, the Mathematics Teaching and Research Section was merged with the Physics Teaching and Research Section, and then named as Department of Mathematics and Physics, Beijing Technology and Business University (BTBU). The Department of Public Mathematics has been chronologically managed by the Department of Mathematics and Physics, the Department of Fundamental Courses, the Department of Mathematics and Physics, the School of Computer and Information Engineering，and the School of Science. In May 2019, the Department of Public Mathematics became a part of the newly-founded School of Mathematics and Statistics of BTBU.
The Department of Public Mathematics has 16 regular faculty members, including 1 professor, 8 associate professors and 7 lecturers.
Teaching and Research
The Department of Public Mathematics offers all basic mathematical courses and some elective courses for non-mathematics undergraduates. It mainly undertakes the teaching tasks of higher mathematics(I)(II), calculus(I)(II), probability & statistics and linear algebra for 5,000 non-mathematics undergraduates. The Department of Public Mathematics also takes charge of Mathematics Competition of College Students. In the past 3 years, the number of participants is 500 per year. The competitions have made outstanding achievements, and have many awards: 22 students have won the first prize in China, 58 students have won the second prize in China and 94 students have won the first prize in Beijing.
The Department of Public Mathematics is both teaching and research. In teaching, our faculty members devote themselves to educational innovations, and have accomplished a few teaching reform projects. In research, the faculty members of the Department of Public Mathematics host and participate in several National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and scientific projects of Beijing, and have published many papers on well-known international academic journals.
