Math for Data Science workshop

Date: 27 April – 17 May 17:00-20:00

Fee: 10000 UAH

Description:

The course is intended for those who want to start Data Science journey, but math knowledge does not allow you to feel confident enough; for those who want to refresh basic mathematics before delving into the data science; for those who do not want to make a reference to a math textbook every time when studying new algorithms.

Key skills:

In the course we will give a base that will allow you to easily learn new specialized sections of mathematics for Data Science. Recall the basic functions, their properties, operations with them; we will go through the basics of differentiation and integration and their application; we will get acquainted with sets and matrices, combinatorics and an introduction to probability theory.
