Recently, Yun Gong Forum was opened again in the Building of Creative Literature and Arts. Hou Zixin, former president of Nankai University, delivered a lecture under the topic of Mathematics and Society. He analyzed three main issues: what does mathematics study; how mathematics has developed; and why modern people need sense and knowledge of mathematics. As he has described, mathematics is the core of modern rational culture, and is one of the basic qualities that modern people need to acquire. During the discussion, several teachers voiced their own opinions on the development of mathematics and social science.
