Learning outcomes
To follow up with the previous mathematical and mathematic-economical courses and acquaint the students with the topics of mathematical sets and logic, graphs theory and numerical methods with the view to economics and informatics.
Students will be able to solve basic as well as follow-up applied problems in the area of mathematical sets, logic, theory of graphs and numerical methods by the use of EXCEL programming environment.
Basic mathematical knowns and skills of the mathematics of the middle schools, subjests of mathematics of the bachelor study and EXCEL programing language.
