Teaching methods


The subject 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. Students get knowledge of several mathematical techniques which are necessary to understand economic relationships and models.
