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....

Excellent review of Linear Algebra even for those who have taken it at school. Handwriting of the first instructor wasn't always legible, but wasn't too bad. Second instructor's handwriting is better.

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 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...

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
