College of Natural Sciences

Department of Mathematics

Introduction

Mathematics is applied in almost every academic subject and it is a basic discipline that is expected to be used in much more areas in the future.

From this perspective, the educational objectives are to improve the ability to deal with mathematical subjects in strict logics, consistent systematics and simple abstraction and to foster human resources that are able to solve the problems presented in the society. The following are sub-objectives.

First, we help students understand basic and intermediate mathematical theories based on mathematics learned in high school and develop creative mathematical thinking abilities.

Second, based on mathematical abilities, we develop problem-solving skills that can be creatively applied to various academic disciplines.

Third, we develop the abilities for math teachers to provide creative education to teach mathematics more strictly and easily.

Fourth, we develop the qualities needed to become pure and applied mathematicians who can play an important role to improve mathematics for the next generation.

History

The Department of Mathematics was first installed and authorized within the College of Liberal Arts in 1967, which was changed to the College of Sciences after restructuring of the university in 1980. Graduate school courses were opened in February 1974. As of March 2010, 1,821 undergraduates, 116 masters and 40 Ph. D. were graduated. Graduates are currently active in parts of society such as in educational institutes including secondary school and universities, as well as in processing centers of financial institutions.

Job Fields

After completing teacher courses, students can become math teachers. Students can also find employment in processing centers at companies, financial institutes and public organizations. Students can also enroll in various application fields in graduate schools and there are more opportunities for students having double majors.

PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH
The aim of the course is to help students develop basic English verbal skills in real life situations. The course will be co-taught by Korean and Native English instructors. Korean instructors will provide students with basic English structure, vocabulary, and expressions, and students will be encouraged to practice speaking English utilizing basic English structures. Students will further practice expressing themselves in English with native English instructors.
1-1
PRACTICAL CHINESE(I)
This course is for students just beginning to learn Chinese. The most difficult aspect of learning Chinese is pronunciation. So, first of all, in this course students will learn how to pronounce Chinese correctly. Then, through topics of daily life conversation, students will learn the basic communication skills Chinese as well as basic grammar.

SEMINAR FOR ACADEMIC LIFE
1. Summary of the course This course is to assist university freshmen in CRM designing to adapt university life well through the instruction and counselling of supervising professor. (This course is composed of self analysis, personality type test, career research, instruction for the success of university life, career plan and direction setting, CRM designing method and CRM designing. The course should be teaching in classes of the students by supervising professor.) 2. Course objectives This course is to motivate the students before the mid term exam and provide students with self analysis, personality type test (MBTI or TCI) and career research (YAT test). Also, this course shall has a plan to instruct the students to enhance the efficiency of university life through career and time management. In addition, this course is to make a chance for the students to have practical assistance to university life by providing study method, report designing strategy and the information on academic system and various kinds of internal programs of the university. After the mid term exam, the students will be instructed to set the direction of career designing through continuous counselling of supervising professor and the students will be able to establish CRM designing and execution plan.

STATISTICS(1)
This course defines events and probabilities, conditional probabilities and independence to evaluate probabilities. Elementary probability distributions such as binomial distribution, geometric distribution, Poisson distribution, and normal distribution are also introduced. The concepts of sample distribution of the statistic and the central limit theorem are introduced. The statistical inference including estimation and hypothesis testing of the mean and the standard deviation will be discussed.

CONVERGENCE- AND INTEGRATION-BASED THINKING AND WRITING
The ability of analyzing and solving problems is emphasized as one of the conditions for survival in the 21st century and one of the core elements of creative capabilities. This course was designed to cultivate convergence- and integration-based creative capabilities, which are integrated problem-solving capabilities to collect, analyze and process knowledge and information by reinforcing the ability of analyzing and solving problems, recreate it in a synthetic fashion, and express it effectively through speech and writing. The course will help the students cultivate their synesthesia thinking and communication skills based on sympathy with other human beings, understanding of the community, and positivity or Gongseong that is sought after by Yeungnam University. Its ultimate goals are to promote the students' creative knowledge development and reinforce their writing capabilities consistently through "convergence- and integration-based thinking and writing as a problem-solving approach."

PRACTICAL CHINESE(II)
This course is for students who successfully completed Practical Chinese(I). Students should be aware of basic Chines grammar and can speak a little Chinese. This course will focus on a little more advanced grammar and expressions. Utilizing a variety of common everyday situations, students will practice what they have learned in Practical Chinese (I)

ACADEMIC ENGLISH
The aim of the course is to help students increase their fluency and accuracy in English. The course will be co-taught by Korean and Native English instructors. Korean instructors will provide students with an opportunity to practice English structure, vocabulary, and expressions, and students will be encouraged to enhance their verbal skills by actively participating in classroom activities. Students will further practice expressing themselves in English with native English instructors.
