The security investment is a comprehensive course with a combination of theories and practices. This paper tries to give some thoughts of reforming the teaching of security investment for the undergraduates majored in financial mathematics. Based on the experiences of teaching this course in Sustech, we emphasize both the mathematical and technical details and practical teaching. We give an illustration of the mathematical derivation for Markowitz minimum variance set. The experience of practical teaching in Sustech are summarized. Through trading competition and course projects, the students could consolidate the investment theories and improve their world problems solving abilities. Finally, future improvements in teaching this course are discussed.
