Data Science: Math and Python
Want to study machine learning or data science, but worried that your math or python skills may not be up to it?
Do words like ‘algebra’, ‘calculus’, ‘pandas’, scikit-learn’, ‘SQL’ fill you with dread?
Has it been so long since you studied math at school that you’ve forgotten much of what you learned in the first place?
You’re not alone. Machine learning and Data Science are built on mathematical principles like Calculus, Linear Algebra, Probability, Statistics, and Optimization; and without Python and data collection skills you are lost.
This course is not designed to make you a mathematician or a Python programmer. Rather, it aims to help you learn some essential foundational concepts and the notation used to express them. The course provides a hands-on approach to working with data and applying the techniques you’ve learned.
This course is the first step in Data Science career.
