The Interdisciplinary Integration of the Mathematical and Economic Disciplines within the Modern Economic Education

Shelekhova Lyudmila Valeryevna


The article describes the features and conditions of the successful interdisciplinary integration of the mathematical and economic disciplines within the educational practices of higher education institutions, emphasizes the importance and significance of the mathematic education for the future professional activities. It states that the most important factors contributing to the effective implementation of the mathematical and economic disciplines include: the coordination of the time-space characteristics of the process of studying various academic disciplines and all components of the educational space; the consideration of the prior conceptual framework and the natural interrelation of educational material on the mathematical and economic disciplines based on their interdependence and complementarity; the implementation of a unified approach to the educational process; the adherence to the succession and continuity in the development of the concepts providing for the enrichment with the new content and communications; the unity in interpretation of the general scientific notions; the avoidance of duplicating the same concepts while studying different subjects; the commitment not only to the fundamental nature of mathematical training, but also to the implementation of the professional functions of mathematics; the determination of the core areas of mathematics courses, their basic ideas, generalizations, leading concepts, categories, and their natural integration with the economic theories (the principle of generalization of knowledge in the direction from the main (common) properties of knowledge to the specific (individual) knowledge and vice versa). It substantiates the author's point of view on the interdisciplinary integration as a single educational space based on the interdependence and complementarity of the content of mathematical and economic disciplines, in order to implement the system of generalized professional knowledge and master the skills and abilities to apply effectively the knowledge in the future professional activities.
