**Abstract:
**We have adapted our two laboratories
at our department based on our research results, which were presented at the
conference CADGME 2014 in Halle and published in the journal [1]. In this
article we describe the hardware and software structure of the Laboratory 1:
LabIT4KT-1 -- Laboratory of Computer Modelling and the Laboratory 2: LabIT4KT-2
-- Laboratory of Numerical Mathematics. We explain the functionality of these
laboratories in teaching mathematics courses at our faculty with priority given
to usage of freely available software. We describe why we have made some
changes in the laboratories and how these changes assist in their operation. We
focus mainly to teach the following mathematical subjects at these
laboratories: Operational Analysis, Linear and Quadratic Programming, Numerical
Mathematics, Applied Statistics, Queuing Theory, Software Computing Resources,
Software tools for modeling processes, Applications of Differential Equations,
Optimization Methods, and Fundamentals of the TeX, (LaTeX).
