Knowledge
• Define the function of one variable.
• Find the domain and range and basic properties.
• Draw graphs of elementary functions.
• Compute limits and derivates of functions.
• Find the properties of no elementary functions a draw theirs graphs.
• Obtain easier imagine about economic functions.
• Order knowledge about vectors in the plain.
• Identify the types of matrices.
• Solve the system of linear equations.
Comprehension
• Express economic dependences using a mathematical function.
• Explain the slope of a function.
• Restate the terms “concavity” and “convexity” into the “degressive” and “progressive”.
• Generalise the functions on the dependences in the real live.
• Express knowledge of vectors to the space.
Applications
• Relate economic and mathematical functions.
• Discover the tools suitable for describing of dependences in economics and other sciences.
• Develop the technique of graphs drawing.
• Apply knowledge of linear algebra in economics, e.g. traffic problems, structural analysis.
• Solve basic problems of linear programming.
Analysis
• Analyse mathematical principle of some economic terms and properties.
• Appraise the trends of economic values.

The subject is built on the university level of mathematics.
It continues fulfilling general methodical and professional
goals of mathematics, i.e. to train the rational thinking and
the ability to conceive and work with quantitative information
concerning the outer world as well as the ability to enunciate
thoughts accurately and to give the correct argumentation
when solving the practical problems. This is being done
especially by mathematization of the real as well as
theoretical economic problems. This subject supplies
the students’ education with realms of higher mathematics
which is applicable namely to the creation and study
of economic models.
