Cíle předmětu
This course is an introduction to financial mathematics. It introduces basic concepts and principles in finance and basic mathematical and statistical tools used by financial mathematicians and application in finance.
The topics will include: interest calculation, application of annuities, discounted cash-flow valuation, the term structure of interest rates, rate of return problems and basics of derivatives valuation.
The main objectives of the course are the following:
- understanding fundamentals of financial mathematics, understanding principles of interest and application of interest in fundamental areas of financial mathematics;
- applying acquired knowledge to the related areas which are not discussed within this course.
Výstupy z učení
Student will be able to:
- understand and apply the concept of time value of capital;
- make decisions on time-diverging cash flows;
- interpret an informative content of interest rate;
- apply variations of interest calculation: after-term and pre-term (linear, compound, exponential and combined);
- understand the value of real and nominal capital depending on the form of taxation and price level;
- effectivelly work with the annuities on which the whole field of finance is based;
- orient in the problems of depreciation and capital budgeting;
- process data usable for further financial analysis

Metody hodnocení
Form of the exam: written
1. The progress test I and progress test II are written in the seminars (according to the time schedule of seminars). The absence in progress tests must be apologized by Information System and student is allowed to write extra test at individual day.
Each test consists of three problems of different difficulty and at most 5 points are granted per one problem (maximum 15 points per 1 test).
2. The final evaluation of results of work in the seminars: Points from progress tests (to pass students need to write each test for at least 60%) and minimum 70% attendance in the seminars.
Students who do not fulfill requirements about minimum percentage from progress tests could re-take it by one extra test containing problems from the whole course.
3. The exam and final evaluation (the exam has two parts – running, which consists of the in-term test I, in-term test II and the final oral exam - discussion about topics related with the course).
The final grade is comprised of two parts:
Points from two progress tests (max 30 points in total)
Oral exam (max 10 points)
Student knowledge will be assessed using the following grade range:
A= 92 – 100 %
B= 84 – 91 %
C= 76 – 83 %
D= 68 – 75 %
E= 60 – 67 %
F= less than 60 %
Important information! If student commits a prohibited act, such as usage of various forbidden tools, cribbing, taking out any part of the exam or any other cheating, teacher is allowed to interrupt an exam and to grade a student with F, FF or FFF according to the seriousness of the offence. Mentioned procedure relates to all the activities that are included to the final evaluation of the course (seminar work, essays, tests etc.).
