*Essential mathematics for economic analysis*. Fifth edition. Harlow: Pearson, 2016. xvi, 807. ISBN 9781292074610. info - SYDSÆTER, Knut.
*Further mathematics for economic analysis*. 2st ed. Harlow: Prentice-Hall, 2008. xi, 616. ISBN 9780273713289. info

*required literature*- SYDSÆTER, Knut, Peter J. HAMMOND, Arne STRØM and Andrés CARVAJAL.
**Teaching methods**- Lectures and seminars. Homeworks.
**Assessment methods**- The final grade is composed of three parts: homeworks (max. 40 points), midterm test (max. 20 points), and final test (max. 40 points). The final test is available only for those students who achieve at least 40 points from homeworks and the midterm test.

The final evaluation is based on the following scale: (0-60)=F, [60-68)=E, [68-76)=D, [76-84)=C, [84-92)=B, [92-100]=A

The conditions (especially regarding the form of tests) will be specified according to the epidemiological situation and valid restrictions. **Language of instruction**- Czech
**Follow-Up Courses****Further comments (probably available only in Czech)**- Study Materials

The course is taught annually. **Teacher's information**- https://mpevpam.page.link/V4SP
