In terms of training, Faculty of Mathematics currently provides full-time training of Bachelor of Mathematics Teacher Education with approximately 200 students per year and training for part-time students. Regarding postgraduate training, the Faculty has two Master's programs in Mathematical Analysis and Applied Mathematics and one Ph.D. program in Mathematical Analysis with a total of 100 students per year. In addition, the Faculty is responsible for teaching some mathematics modules to students of other faculties in the university.
Closely linked to the establishment and development process of Hanoi Pedagogical University 2, the Faculty’s history and development can be divided into 3 periods:

The training quality of Faculty of Mathematics has now been confirmed from the positive feedback of employers, from the success of the National Mathematics Olympiads for students, etc. Faculty of Mathematics, Hanoi Pedagogical University 2 is among the top-ranked Mathematics Faculties in the country, being priority choices for high school students in the localities. Every year, the Faculty of Mathematics holds Mathematics Olympiad for students who are interested in mathematics. From this competition, the Faculty select a team to participate in National Mathematics Olympiads in which many students have won high prizes. Thereby, they have grown up, being honored to become teachers and successful in scientific research.
At the beginning of the 21st century, with a strategic vision of training to meet the social requirements and with the approval of Ministry of Education and Training, Faculty of Mathematics opened Master programs in Mathematics Analysis, Applied Mathematics and PhD program in Mathematics Analysis. With the aim of improving the quality of higher education and meeting the demand ofhighly-qualified human resources, in the school year of 2015-2016, Faculty of Mathematics advised the University to establish collaboration with the Institute of Mathematics, Vietnamese Academy of Science and Technology.
