## О курсе

This course offers a brief introduction to the multivariate calculus required to build many common machine learning techniques. We start at the very beginning with a refresher on the “rise over run” formulation of a slope, before converting this to the formal definition of the gradient of a function. We then start to build up a set of tools for making calculus easier and faster. Next, we learn how to calculate vectors that point up hill on multidimensional surfaces and even put this into action using an interactive game. We take a look at how we can use calculus to build approximations to functions, as well as helping us to quantify how accurate we should expect those approximations to be. We also spend some time talking about where calculus comes up in the training of neural networks, before finally showing you how it is applied in linear regression models. This course is intended to offer an intuitive understanding of calculus, as well as the language necessary to look concepts up yourselves when you get stuck. Hopefully, without going into too much detail, you’ll still come away with the confidence to dive into some more focused machine learning courses in future....

Excellent course. I completed this course with no prior knowledge of multivariate calculus and was successful nonetheless. It was challenging and extremely interesting, informative, and well designed.

Very Well Explained. Good content and great explanation of content. Complex topics are also covered in very easy way. Very Helpful for learning much more complex topics for Machine Learning in future.

Great overall, but some of the teaching falls short of clarity, too much hand waving, and programming exercises can be obtuse.

This is a nice course for beginners, as it relies on intuition for the explanation. Also, this has very interesting exercises.

it is pretty good for week1 to week4, but week5 and week6 are too complicated, I think the course should explain more details.

Can be hard in some parts. But it's not instructors fault as they had to put a lot of material into relatively short course

Interestin to refresh notions you already learned. Probably a bit difficult if you're totally new to multivariate calculus

Sometimes I need more explanation, I needed to find another resources to clarify what I haven't understood at that time.

Feedback on assessment could be improved, and there could be more practice questions relevant to the final assessments

I think I've improve my understanding of mathematics for ML, mainly, I've understand much better the concepts involved

More focus on concrete data centric machine learning instead of abstract function definitions would have been helpful

Very nice and concise, definitely review normal calculus and look up materials to get the most out of this course.

more on optimization techniques like in-depth concepts of gradient descent would have helped, rest was great

It seems that the lecture is not quite closely connected with the quiz, which may bring great confusion.
