Abstract: This paper outlines theoretical and methodological foundations of teaching mathematics to extramural students, formulates and argues requirements for the organisation of teaching mathematics to extramural students of technical universities, clarifies the concept of distance learning, develops methodology of teaching mathematics to extramural students of technical universities via program-methodological complex and it proves that it effectively improves teaching mathematics to extramural students of higher technical institutions, providing additional opportunities for individualisation of students' learning due to the use of interactive and educational programs, which help to control acquired knowledge, skills and competences acquired in mathematics.

Keywords: extramural learning; distance learning; information and communication technologies; ICTs; independent learning; mathematics; pedagogical experiment; 'zero' tests; software application; technical universities.
