About the Course

Calculus through Data & Modeling: Differentiation Rules continues the study of differentiable calculus by developing new rules for finding derivatives without having to use the limit definition directly. These differentiation rules will enable the calculation of rates of change with relative ease the derivatives of polynomials, rational functions, algebraic functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions. Once these rules are developed, they are then applied to solve problems involving rates of change and the approximation of functions....

An outstanding Differential Calculus MOOC. The exercises require a lot of work and understanding how-to-do it. It covers a series of advanced mathematics in derivatives of single and multivariable functions, chain rule, gradient, and interesting mathematical models by working with numerical data. It requires the prior two courses of this specialization and a very good background in Mathematics and/or Physics in the concept of Derivatives and Differentiation Rules. Overall, this course shows a different approach in interpreting mathematical patterns by core topics in Calculus, that is important in the general view of Data Science and Modeling.

Really nice course. Everything was clear, the assignments gave me enough opportunity to practice. And the final project was interesting and not too long.

I found the first course in the specialization a lot harder than this one to be honest

Best Differential Calculus course online

The professor is very engaging and the lectures are well explained. The problem is the same for almost every course in this platform: Not enough material that can help students prepare better for the assessments, not enough examples in the lectures, the problems on the assessments cover material that was briefly mentioned during a lecture. The content of the course is great, but I hope they can work on some of these areas of improvement.

The word "Data" must be removed from the course title.

There is zero mentions of any form of data in the entirity of the course. There is a peer graded assignment in the end that definitely is a mere placeholder, and it is not even mandatory. What a waste of time. The caculus part is mediocre as well.
