Chinese Name : 文耀光

Variants : Man, Y. K.

Dr Man obtained his BSc (Hons) degree in Mathematics from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and his MSc (with Distinction) and PhD degrees in Mathematics from Queen Mary, University of London, UK. He also obtained a PGDE (with Distinction) from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. 

His publications include books, book chapters, conference papers, international refereed journal articles and CD-ROMs in the areas of Computer Algebra, Geometry, History of Mathematics, Problem Solving, Number Theory, Mathematical Algorithms, Computer Assisted Learning in Mathematics and Mathematics Educaton, etc. Together with his team members, Dr Man had received a Certificate of Merit in a QEF Project called "Promoting problem-solving practices among teachers and pupils in primary mathematics" in 2008. He had also received the Sir Robert Black Trust Fund scholarships and the ORS scholarships from Hong Kong and the United Kingdom before. He is now a member of the International Association of Engineers (IAENG) and the Institute of Physics (IOP) of UK. He also serves as an Editorial Board member for the following journals: (i) International Journal of Applied and Experimental Mathematics, (ii) International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Mathematics, and (iii) American Journal of Mathematical and Computer Modelling.

Dr Man is now an Associate Professor of the Department of Mathematics and Information Technology, and the Programme Leader of the Master of Arts in Mathematics and Pedagogy Programme at the university. He teaches undergraduate and postgraduate courses of mathematics and mathematics education, as well as professional development courses for in-service mathematics teachers.
