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.\n\nThank you for a great class!!
This course syllabus is great. It starts wonderfully. Week 1 to 4 is taught by Paul Bendich, and Daniel Egger the instruction is awesome. Effective way to refresh and add the Data Science math skills!

The course is very good. Maybe more topics could be included. The videos would be better if direct writing is not used, sometimes it leads to confusion with letters and numbers.

Estoy muy contento, porque el curso me ha permitido crear una adecuada ruta de aprendizaje de las habilidades matemáticas que se requieren en la ciencia de datos. Muchas gracias
By Mohammad M U•
The course was important especially the topics of probability. The videos are very useful and I can easily followed the flow and topics of this course. Thank ypu for this course

This is helpful, it helps me a lot to improve my math skills and prepare for my future studies. The lecturers are patient and present the key knowledge in an interesting way.
By Chinmaya M•
The course is well structured and helps in acquiring the essential knowledge of mathematics for Data Science. Thanks Daniel Egger and Paul Bendich for this wonderful course.
By Benjamin M•
Both instructors we're awesome, it's easy to understand the distinction and level of knowledge in top professors at a top university like Duke. Really appreciate those dudes.

A very holistic course on mathematics required for machine learning. I hope the Probability bit could have been covered more in details. Also, very good on exercises as well.
By Ankur K•
It was wonderful course to do and content was good, but there are some improvement needed inside last chapter.
please add some more slides inside binomial and bayes ' theorems

A great introduction to the basic Mathematics skill needed to start Data Science Career. A must course for does not have the mathematics background required for Data Science.
By RISHU M•
A must-have course for anyone who wants to start his/her career in data science. The probability module of this course is really helpful in solving many real-world problems.
By Olumuyiwa O•
It was excellently taught. I have not perfectly understood conditional probabilities but I am aware that it needs a lot of practice and study. Thank you for your knowledge.
By Tiago V•
Really good to remember some maths stuff and to learn and consolidate new maths stuff that I thought I knew (but actually only learnt about it in this course).
By Tony J A•
Really good course to get a understanding of the basic concepts required to start with data sciences. Teachers are excellent and the quizs and assignments are challenging.
Explanation and notes were very concise, although the learning curve for the probability portion is a little steep. Able to rewatch and google until you grasp the concept
By Sir P•
This course is really great! It helps me refresh my knowledge on basic math skills and have a further understanding of how to apply these concepts in real life scenario.
By Nakshatra G•
It is a great course to get knowledge of some important and very basic mathematics used in machine learning. It is a well-taught course. The instructors are very good.
This should be my first most completed course on Coursera, although the last quiz overdue. Probability is hard to me, so I've learned a lot during this course, thanks!
By Ana P P D•
It has really helped me understand a lot of mathematical principles, however i think the explanations of the first professor were more understandable and easy to get.
By Aayesha A•
its very nice , amazing course
i have cleared my many concepts
requesting you to explain few more examples on joint probability and based on probability topic.
By SARATHKUMAR E•
Started from basic stuff but when things were getting interesting, the course got completed. Wish a few more topics should have been included in the probability topic
By shivashish p•
It is a course that led me to understand these topics from basics although I had studied all this but here it gives another dimension to my understanding. Thank you!

The lecturers were very clear when they explained the concepts and it was very easy to understand. Especially how the lecturer approached Bayes theorem was spot on.
