Prerequisites

Students should have some familiarity with basic statistical and linear algebraic concepts such as mean, median, mode, standard deviation, correlation, and the difference between a vector and a matrix. Additionally, Python is a requirement for the course. In Python, it will be helpful to know basic data structures such as lists, tuples, and dictionaries, and what distinguishes them (that is, when they should be used). Python v3 is currently used in the course.

  1. Exercises 1-7, 13, 18-21, 27-35, 38,39 of Learn Python The Hard Way.
  2. Videos 1-6 of Linear Algebra review from Andrew Ng’s Machine Learning course (labeled as: III. Linear Algebra Review (Week 1, Optional).
  3. The exercises in Chapters 2 and 3 of OpenIntro Statistics.
