Annotation: The article deals with the psychoemotional state of students when studying the modules "Integral calculus" and "Differential equations" in the course of higher mathematics. The factors that affect the degree of assimilation of educational material by first-year students are described, and the causes of emotional (psychological) stress are noted. The study is confirmed by an empirical description, which was conducted using the "colour painting" technique, first used to assess the psychoemotional state of first-year students when studying sections of the higher mathematics course. The proposed method makes it possible to "see" the mood of students on each topic of the module, to track the dynamics of emotional states in the team on the topics of each module and the overall picture of the mood of each individual in the student group. Colour matrix allows recording the emotional response to events (for the authors of the article, these are modules of the course) and finding out how it was perceived by students, who of them is experiencing difficulties. The study of the psychoemotional state of respondents was conducted by means of a questionnaire, where the authors were interested in how the study materials on the topic "Integral calculus" and "Differential equations"affect the students' health/mood. Based on the analysis, the most difficult topics for learning modules were identified, and recommendations were given on their possible forms and methods of teaching.
