    The problem of students’ understanding and mastering mathematics is currently one of the most emphasized topics of expert public discussion. Mathematics is a specific subject. Having mathematical knowledge does not mean only to know definitions, sentences, algorithms or formulas. It is only the first step. The key competencies are to understanding of their mutual context, and ability to apply mathematics for solution of the problems of the life. If we want to teach mathematics more effectively, we need to use the new methods, forms and means of teaching as: the attractive applications, the adequate visualizations, contextual teaching, and observation based learning. A pedagogical experiment, whose results are stated in this article, was realised during the academic year 2015/2016 on the University of Zilina. After using the new alternative forms of teaching the subject Mathematics 1 we carried out a pedagogical experiment. The aim of this experiment was to find out whether this implementation of new methods would have a positive influence on the student’s attitudes to mathematics.

    There are described in the article current applications with the artificial intelligence and value of using it for the road transport efficiency. This paper deals with concept of artificial intelligence, main reasons for successful growing of AI at present and main areas of AI using in transportation. One part of the article aims to define the artificial neural networks and basic elements of them. The article describes the reason of use them in transportation problems solving, the possibility of using neural networks in the road transport, examples of tasks solvable by neural nets, the advantages and disadvantages of using neural networks.

    This paper deals with the use of Internet by the road transport business, especially with the marketing web services. The aim is to show the importance of the Search engine optimisation (SEO) methods for the creation of webpages, as their consistent implementation is relevant for improving marketing communication and improving the search-engine rankings. The results of a survey among small and medium enterprises in the road transport business show that proper attention given to the creation of a company website brings clear economic effects.
