Higher Mathematics


a course of study in the curriculum of technical and certain other specialized educational institutions, usually encompassing analytical geometry, elements of advanced algebra, differential and integral calculus, and differential equations. In connection with the requirements of contemporary technology, this course of study has tended to expand during the 1960’s and 1970’s to include other mathematical disciplines. Sometimes higher mathematics is understood to mean the aggregate of mathematical subjects that are not taught in secondary schools. But such an interpretation cannot be considered correct, since in order to develop secondary school mathematical programs both in the USSR and abroad, elements of various mathematical disciplines are used, in particular, those of analytical geometry, mathematical analysis, and probability theory.
