Learning activities and teaching methods

Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Work with text (with textbook, with book)

Learning outcomes

The course is designed to acquaint students with basics of linear algebra, differential and integral calculus of functions of several real variables and theory of ordinary differential equations and to develop their ability to find and use appropriate mathematical methods to solve problems of various economic and technical disciplines.
Students will be able to solve problems of all topics covered by this course and to find and use appropriate methods to solve problems of subsequent mathematically oriented subjects.
