About the Course

Are you interested in Data Science but lack the math background for it? Has math always been a tough subject that you tend to avoid? This course will teach you the most fundamental Calculus concepts that you will need for a career in Data Science without a ton of unnecessary proofs and techniques that you may never use. Consider this an expressway to Data Science with approachable methods and friendly concepts that will guide you to truly understanding the most important ideas in Differential Calculus. We will review some algebra basics, talk about what a derivative is, compute some simple derivatives and apply the basics of derivatives to graphing and maximizing functions. This course is designed to prepare learners to successfully complete Statistical Modeling for Data Science Application, which is part of CU Boulder's Master of Science in Data Science (MS-DS) program.

Took the class with the intention of practicing concepts and getting a taste of how University of Colorado Boulder conducts their online classes, because I was interested in the Master of Science in Data Science. The class was good, could have been better, but that's not issue. Several students, including myself, are complaining on the group forum because there's a programing error on the last quiz. We are unable to submit the answer and thus we get and automatic fail on the test. It's been over a week, my deadline to complete the course is about to expire and no one from the school has answered a single word. Apparently I'm going to fail a class, because the quiz doesn't work and the moderators are MIA.
