Distinguished Lecture Series on Applications of Mathematics in STEAM World

Background

Mathematics and its applications pervade all aspects of life in the modern world. The developments in various disciplines, technology and fields highly rely on the use of mathematics. To promote the latest real-life applications of mathematics, the Mathematics Education Section of EDB invites distinguished experts and scholars in various fields to conduct Distinguished Lecture Series on Applications of Mathematics in STEAM world from 2022/23 to 2024/25 school years, so as to enhance teachers’ knowledge of frontier applications of mathematics and making connections between mathematics and real life.

Sixth Distinguished Lecture: The application of Mathematical Modelling in Economics: Analysis of Human Behaviour

Promotion video:  




Programme Description

Economics is closely related to our lives. You may wonder, "Shall I stay at home and watch online movies with a monthly fee, or go to the cinema to watch a movie on the big screen?" These are the kind of questions involving "calculation and choice" in economics. By combining with mathematics, economics not only explains the wealth gap around the world, or the phenomena like high wages of top athletes, but also predicts whether bus fares will increase in the coming year. Mathematics is the foundation of theory, while economics utilises theory to analyse various human behavioral phenomena. Through mathematical tools such as big data and statistics, economists can assess economic conditions, such as employment rates and inflation, allowing the government to formulate effective policies to promote social and economic development. In this lecture, Dr Paul LUK will provide a brief introduction to the importance of mathematical and statistical tools in economic research, so that participants can understand the interdisciplinary nature of the analysis of human behaviour.

Date: 16 May 2024 (Thursday)

Time: 2:30 – 5:15 p.m.

Venue: Tang Shiu Kin Victoria Government Secondary School, 5 Oi Kwan Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong


Vacancy: 300

Fifth Distinguished Lecture: A Brief Introduction on the Application of Mathematics in Biomedicine


Promotion video: 




Programme Description

Pathology is a discipline that investigates the mechanisms underlying the causes and progression of diseases, providing a scientific foundation for the development of new diagnostic and treatment methods. The study of cancer, a major health burden and leading cause of death worldwide, has experienced significant advancements in research due to modern technology. These advancements allow researchers to decipher genetic alterations in cancer genomes and identify novel driver mutations.

 

In this talk, Prof Jack WONG will provide a brief introduction to the importance of mathematics and statistics in biomedical research, as well as their roles in enhancing our understanding of complex diseases like cancer. The aims of this talk are to inspire participants to appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of modern medical research and recognise the essential role that mathematics plays in advancing our knowledge of human health and disease.

Date: 22 April 2024 (Monday)

Time: 2:30 – 5:15 p.m.

Venue: Chiu Lut Sau Memorial Secondary School, 7 Tai Yuk Road, Yuen Long, New Territories.



Vacancy: 300
