Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The students will be able to master the basic techniques specified by the five main topics listed in the syllabus. Also, they will be able to freely, but logically correct, discuss selected theoretical units that will allow talented individuals to excel. The student will also have an overview of basic application possibilities of the discussed apparatus in the field of economics. (1) The student will be able to solve systems of linear equations and apply them to describe the basic problems of network analysis. (2) The student will be able to apply the basic rules and formulas for the calculation of integrals, use them to calculate the area of planar regions, and for calculating of improper integrals and integrals of discontinuous functions. (3) The student will be able to find local extrema of functions of two variables without/with constraints, level curves and total differential, will be able to decide whether the given function is homogeneous. (4) The student will be able to solve selected ordinary differential equations of the 1st and 2nd order. (5) The student will be able to use basic rules and formulas to calculate the difference of the sequence and to assess the dynamic of monotonic sequences, will be able to solve linear difference equations of the 1st and 2nd order.

Summary

The course is primarily focused on the practical mastery of selected mathematical methods in the field of linear algebra and calculus, which form the basis for further quantitative considerations in related subjects. The student will also be acquainted with the derivation of basic theoretical findings. This enables the development of logical skills, which form the basis for analytical and critical thinking. For better motivation of students, the presentation in lectures is always connected with appropriate economic problems.
