Lectures

Tutorials

The course Mathematics G extends the basic concepts of mathematics and introduces the most important concepts of higher mathematics, i.e., the concept of limit of a function at a fixed point and the derivative of a function (as a special case of limit). Similarly, the course introduces the concept of integration (indefinite and definite integration). All this techniques have extensive applications in economic theories. Moreover, the course discuss also the solvability of systems of linear equations which forms the starting point for description of many problems from economic branche.
Besides this facts, the student in the course should learn and fix the accuracy when arguing.

Requirements (100 points, minimum 51 points):
Credit (45 points, minimal 23 points)
1. passing out the tests (at least 50 %),
2. sucesfull completion of all tasks until the end of the winter term (see the valid harmonogram).
