Data science courses contain math—no avoiding that! This course is designed to teach learners the basic math you will need in order to be successful in almost any data science math course and was created for learners who have basic math skills but may not have taken algebra or pre-calculus. Data Science Math Skills introduces the core math that data science is built upon, with no extra complexity, introducing unfamiliar ideas and math symbols one-at-a-time. Learners who complete this course will master the vocabulary, notation, concepts, and algebra rules that all data scientists must know before moving on to more advanced material. Topics include: ~Set theory, including Venn diagrams ~Properties of the real number line ~Interval notation and algebra with inequalities ~Uses for summation and Sigma notation ~Math on the Cartesian (x,y) plane, slope and distance formulas ~Graphing and describing functions and their inverses on the x-y plane, ~The concept of instantaneous rate of change and tangent lines to a curve ~Exponents, logarithms, and the natural log function. ~Probability theory, including Bayes’ theorem. While this course is intended as a general introduction to the math skills needed for data science, it can be considered a prerequisite for learners interested in the course, "Mastering Data Analysis in Excel," which is part of the Excel to MySQL Data Science Specialization. Learners who master Data Science Math Skills will be fully prepared for success with the more advanced math concepts introduced in "Mastering Data Analysis in Excel." Good luck and we hope you enjoy the course!...



Effective way to refresh and add the Data Science math skills! Thanks a lot! At the time of the study some of the quizzes content were not rendering correctly on mobile devices (both iPad and Android)


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!

Perfect for beginners or as a review for those who have not used basic math skills for quite some time.

創建者 Sandeep T


Covered all the required topics. I wish they covered Linear Algebra(matrix). It would have been great.

創建者 Kangmin L


The first three weeks are pretty easy high school math. The last week is very informative and helpful.

創建者 Hüseyin D


Even if I found the "week4" very complicated, you did your job great! Thanks for all the information.

創建者 Rahul R


one of a kind and so far the best course so far that I have come across in the field of data science.

創建者 Somenath C


It is a very good course for data science students who need to understand the mathematics part of it.

創建者 Joel R


great course! it was a nice refresher for me, though I still learned new things as well! thank you!

The overall Basic course is GRATE but in last few chapters in probability was tough to understand.

創建者 SongNan


Very easy to understand and know how to succeed in the future on the learning path. Thanks a lot !

創建者 MD F R


especially, the last test on probability in one of the proofs of higher standards of this course.

創建者 Josimar F D A


It was an excellent course that allowed me to improve my interest in statistics and probability.

創建者 Rushiraj C


Awesome! Loved the content as now I have a starting point in a race towards Data Science Skills.

創建者 V i c t o r i a C


More examples must be given to understand Probability Week 4. Overall it was a very good course.

創建者 Kent D J


This class was great. I really recommend it, especially if you are new to mathematical concepts.

創建者 Tim J


I found it quite engaging and challenging at times to get my head back around high school maths!

創建者 Violin M


The course was very helpful for my current studies. This lesson was very helpful and insightful

創建者 Muhammad A


My experience was phenomenal, although the syllabus was a bit difficult but i got the concepts.



Awesome course. A little more on probability will really help the students as well this course.
