It shows the good teaching accomplishment of young teachers in our school. Six mathematics courses from Xi’an Jiaotong University, Xidian University, Northwest Universities, Shaanxi Normal University and Chang’an University in teaching competitions at all levels young teachers through on-site teaching demonstration, demonstrated the good comprehensive quality of young teachers in the new Era mathematics curriculum, by the participants alike.
As an important support unit for the school to carry out general education, the College of Science has undertaken more than one-third of the teaching work of the whole school.

In recent years, our University Mathematics course teaching a group of outstanding teachers have retired, for this reason, the College of Science to take stock of the curriculum, overall planning, according to the current trend of university mathematics education Teaching Reform, mobilize a group of scientific research quality, enthusiasm for teaching work of young teachers to join the university mathematics teaching work, and through the "Race to promote teaching" Ways to enhance their comprehensive teaching ability in all directions. A group of young teachers represented by Lin Du, Ying Zhang and Lulu Pan stand out, who have grown into the backbone of college mathematics teaching while winning a number of national, regional or Alliance University Teaching Competition Awards.
At the closing ceremony, Professor Yufeng Nie, vice president of the College of Science and head of mathematics, thought that the successful holding of the seminar would bring positive promotion to the transfer of teachers from the Department of Applied Mathematics of the College of Science to the undergraduate teaching work and the improvement of teaching ability, strengthen the exchanges and cooperation among the College mathematics teaching colleges in the province. To jointly improve the teaching level and ability of mathematics course teachers in universities in the province. Shenggui Zhang said that the reform of mathematics teaching in our university will take this meeting as an opportunity to construct the teaching of Mathematics course in the new era, renew the teaching idea, and strive for innovation, so as to provide a strong guarantee for improving the teaching quality of our undergraduate students.
