TOP REVIEWS FROM DATA SCIENCE MATH SKILLS
I thought this course was a nice refresher on basic mathematical concepts and it introduced me to set theory and probability very well! I think I am better prepared for data science afterward!
Good course. The probability portion is very challenging. Dr. Eggers is a tremendous instructor, but I did not feel adequately prepared for the some of the practical application in the quizzes.
This course was very easy to understand, though I think week 4's context required more examples. Overall, it was a concise course for brushing up basic math skills required for data science.
This was mostly review for me though probability especially Beyes Theorem derivation was new. The instructors provided clear often refreshing ways to look at material.
Thank you for a great class!!
