Environmental monitoring combines a large number of topics and interdisciplinary relations, which leads to a mandatory reduction of the learning content. This article presents the application of mathematical methods for the didactic reduction of the whole program and single topics of the environmental monitoring course. These methods include the selection of monitoring objects and partial components and indicators. Entropy, constructing regression models, clustering and application of graph theory are carried out. This article gives examples of applying the didactic reduction method in the monitoring of Ukrainian regions. The method can be interpolated to any geographic object. Implementation of this method leads to a flexible reduction of the learning time and better performance of future professional duties. It provides the development of theoretical skills in analysis and synthesis, determining essence from a large data set and the degree of influence of factors.
