Mathematics forms the core of data science and machine learning. Thus, to be the best data scientist you can be, you must have a working understanding of the most relevant math.

Getting started in data science is easy thanks to high-level libraries like Scikit-learn and Keras. But understanding the math behind the algorithms in these libraries opens an infinite number of possibilities up to you. From identifying modeling issues to inventing new and more powerful solutions, understanding the math behind it all can dramatically increase the impact you can make over the course of your career.

Led by deep learning guru Dr. Jon Krohn, this course provides a firm grasp of the mathematics — namely linear algebra and calculus — that underlies machine learning algorithms and data science models.

Course Sections

•Linear Algebra Data Structures

•Tensor Operations

•Matrix Properties

•Eigenvectors and Eigenvalues

•Matrix Operations for Machine Learning

•Limits

•Derivatives and Differentiation

•Automatic Differentiation

•Partial-Derivative Calculus

•Integral Calculus

Throughout each of the sections, you’ll find plenty of hands-on assignments, Python code demos, and practical exercises to get your math game in top form!

This Mathematical Foundations of Machine Learning course is complete, but in the future, we intend on adding bonus content from related subjects beyond math, namely: probability, statistics, data structures, algorithms, and optimization. Enrollment now includes free, unlimited access to all of this future course content — over 25 hours in total.
