Abstract: Flexibility in the teaching of Mathematics is understood as the ability to create more than one method of teaching, which allows to understand and master Mathematics taking into account the specific needs of students and creating a learning environment that encourages thinking and effective work. While working with first-year students, we observe their varying competence and confidence in Mathematics. During the first-year studies, students of agricultural and economic specialties have a short course of Mathematics (3-6 ECTS credit points). Before graduating from school, they had studied Mathematics at different levels of A and B, they took either a school or state examination, or none of them. After the initial diagnostic test, we find very different mathematical fundamentals. Therefore, it is necessary to use several teaching methods that help to understand and learn Mathematics, taking into account the different backgrounds of students, their attitude towards Mathematics, the pace of learning and the way in which they learn. In addition, the aim is to interest students with this subject and to show the possibilities of applying Mathematics. The paper discusses the structure of the course of Mathematics, the use of methodological strategies, e-learning opportunities and the organization of additional work in order to ensure good mastering of the subject matter of Mathematics. The answers to questions on what, where, when and how to teach Mathematics are based on practical experience. A graphical analysis method and a method of statistical quantitative analysis of the research data were used in the study. The study presents the results of student surveys on the acceptability and necessity of the measures used to promote learning. The use of mini-tests, the Moodle environment, the practical self-testing tests with answers and the additional weekly counselling were rated positively by students
