this text provides the students with simple "cookbook" recipes for solving problems they might face in their studies of economics. Since the target audience was supposed to have some mathematical background (admittance to the program requires at least BA level mathematics), the main goal was to refresh students' knowledge of mathematics rather than teach them math "from scratch".
