**fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with**- there are 12 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
**Course objectives**- The aim of the course is to provide students with the basic tools necessary for quantitative analysis in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and other courses.
**Learning outcomes**- After completing the course, students will be able to

- handle routine mathematical operations and calculations.

- understand basic mathematical concepts

- apply procedures on solving practical problems in real situations.

- figure out how to use mathematical tools in economic, commercial, managerial and financial fields. **Syllabus**- Tutorials (with numbers of chapters in SYD2008) 1. Basic concepts, infinite sequences and series (from 3.1 to 3.6, 10.4-6), functions (4.1-4.3, 5.1-5.3), limit of functions of one variable (7.9 to 7.12)
- 2. Derivatives (6), derivatives in use (7), optimization of function of one variable (8)
- 3. Functions of two variables (11.1-11.11.5-11.7, 13.1 to 13.3) integration (9.1, 9.5 to 9.6), definite integral (9.2 to 9.4, 9.7)
- 4. Linear algebra (15.2 to 15.5), determinant and inverse matrix (16.1 to 16.7), systems of linear equations (15.1, 15.6, 16.8), linear independence (15.9)

**Teaching methods**- The course is divided into four tutorials. Students are expected to study the literature. There are obligatory auto-correction exercises and homework.
**Assessment methods**- The course is completed by an exam. The total score consists of:

- the points gained in final written test (70%)

- the points for autocorrection exercise (20%)

- the written homework (10%)

Any copying, recording or taking out the tests, use of unauthorized devices and means of communication or other distortions of test objectivity will be considered a failure in the course and a gross violation of study regulations. Consequently, the teacher closes the test (credit) score in IS by grade "F" and Dean initiates disciplinary proceedings. **Language of instruction**- Czech
**Follow-Up Courses****Further comments (probably available only in Czech)**- The course is taught annually.

Information on the extent and intensity of the course: tutorial 12 hodin. **Listed among pre-requisites of other courses**
