About the Course

In this course on Linear Algebra we look at what linear algebra is and how it relates to vectors and matrices. Then we look through what vectors and matrices are and how to work with them, including the knotty problem of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and how to use these to solve problems. Finally we look at how to use these to do fun things with datasets - like how to rotate images of faces and how to extract eigenvectors to look at how the Pagerank algorithm works. Since we're aiming at data-driven applications, we'll be implementing some of these ideas in code, not just on pencil and paper. Towards the end of the course, you'll write code blocks and encounter Jupyter notebooks in Python, but don't worry, these will be quite short, focussed on the concepts, and will guide you through if you’ve not coded before. At the end of this course you will have an intuitive understanding of vectors and matrices that will help you bridge the gap into linear algebra problems, and how to apply these concepts to machine learning....

Great way to learn about applied Linear Algebra. Should be fairly easy if you have any background with linear algebra, but looks at concepts through the scope of geometric application, which is fresh.

Professors teaches in so much friendly manner. This is beginner level course. Don't expect you will dive deep inside the Linear Algebra. But the foundation will become solid if you attend this course.

I would give it 3.7, examples are good but the vectors the lecturer draw were no easy to understand because of drawing by hand.

The Eigen system could have been better explained. The last quiz was too hard and the concepts required were not covered

Lot of the concepts seemed glossed over and could have used more guided practice and/or linkages to real world problems.

It is so complex and contains so much knowledge but hard to understand for beginner or intermediate in mathematic

The instructor is skipping a lot of material and the quizzes require working with external sources to be solved.

This course would be perfect if more elaboration on the maths required to complete the quizzes, was provided.

i expected a practical mathematic approach rather than only mathematical approach.but page rank algo is good

Good course, but could add extra steps for those a little rusty with algebra, matrices, vectors and so on.

Overall good, but some nasty difficulty with the programming assignments... especially the last one.

The programming part is too confusing for someone that is just starting.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Everything is good. But I still don't have any idea about how I will use this in Machine learning.

Good material if you want to refresh your knowledge, poor programming assignment support/feedback

Repetitive/redundant questions in the assignment and minimal use of coding during the videos

The videos need to be updated, there are quite some errors that are already identified...

Lack of feedback or more help from instructors to doubts, but the course is very good.

Explainations was good but some topics was difficult to get may be due to my basics

Some of the quizzes go beyond what is in the videos and often spent ages on them.

Enough gaps that I finished feeling like I really had no idea what was going on.

Requires an understanding of python that doesn't seem to be expressed anywhere

All in all this course served as a good refresher for linear algebra.
