### Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

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.

### Summary

Taught in Czech only. It contains the following topics: 1. Linear algebra – matrices, determinant, rank. 2. Linear algebra – the inverse of the matrix, linear equations. 3. Functions of one real variable – definition, properties, graphs, inverse functions. 4. The limit of function – properties of limits, limits to infinity, one sided limits, definition of continuit, sequences, limits of sequences. 5. An introduction to the derivation – slope of a tangent line at a point, 6. Higher order derivations, l´Hospital´s rule. 7. Additional applications of derivation.

1. Real sequences – definition, properties, graphs, arithmetic sequence, geometric sequence, summation. 2. Functions of one real variable – definition, domain and range, classification, graphs, even and odd functions, monotonic functions (strictly increasing, strictly decreasing), inverse functions, composition of functions. 3. The limits of functions – properties of limits, limits to infinity, one sided limits, definition of continuity, continuity on an interval. 4. An introduction to the differential calculus – slope of a tangent line at a point, derivative, equation of a tangent line and normal line to a curve at a point, techniques of differentiation, higher order derivations, l´Hospital´s rule. 5. Course of a function – local and global extrema, intervals of monotonicity, points of inflection, convexity, concavity, asymptotic lines. 1.
