 Synopsis:

The course Applied Mathematics combines both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Theoretical knowledge is necessary to formulate a mathematical model and then to solve decisionmaking and optimization problems in economic processes. Practical knowledge is trained by solving concrete situations using sample examples, where students are introduced to specific methods and techniques of mathematical data analysis.
 Requirements:

1. Active participation in seminars (maximum 2 absences allowed)
2. Min. 50% pass rate in the credit test (max. 20 points)
Examination conditions: the examination consists of two parts: written and oral.
The written part contains 4 examples (max. 60 points).
In the oral part of the exam (max. 20 points) the student defends the grade from the written part. The student must demonstrate that he/she understands the content and the logical connections.
Assessment according to the ECTS scale for the sum of all points (max. 100 points)
 Syllabus of lectures:
