ST- Math Tools for Data Science


Success in the field of data science heavily depends on students' knowledge of many mathematical tools that are not always covered in standard mathematical curriculum. Often, these topics are not covered appropriately in data science courses either due to the time limits. This course aims at filling this void: it covers mathematical tools needed for courses in data science such as machine learning, data mining, neural networks, etc. It motivates the topics by real-word applications and discusses how they can be used in data analytics algorithms.
