Abstract: Knowledge of mathematics is required for students of agricultural specialities both in their studies of other subjects and in the future organisation of agricultural activities after graduation. At Vytautas Magnus University Agriculture Academy, mathematics is compulsory for students of all specialities. However, the number of semesters, credits and the curriculum vary. The paper discusses the impact of state education reforms on mathematics studies at the university. In the country, demographic factors, as well as mandatory competitive enrolment scores, reduce the number of students in agricultural studies. In addition to university merging processes, students of different specialities are joined in common lectures and mathematics modules are merged. Difficulties arise due to the choice of applied exercises and the lack of time to present mathematical topics required for certain specialities. The mathematical background of the new students has a great influence on the study of mathematics. The paper presents the results of a study of students’ mathematical preparedness levels over the last 10 years (2010- 2019). Ongoing education reforms in schools have an effect on these outcomes. In order to ensure successful studies, mathematical methodological material is prepared and presented in the Moodle environment. Student ratings and opinions on the usefulness and intensity of e-learning material are obtained. In the case of a short one-semester mathematics course, mini-tests teaching methodology is applied. It allows for continuous uptake of new material and knowledge testing throughout the semester. A method of statistical quantitative analysis of the research data were used in the study
