**Essential Linear Algebra and Calculus Hands-On in NumPy, TensorFlow, and PyTorch**

Created by Dr Jon Krohn, SuperDataScience Team, Ligency Team | 16.5 hours on-demand video course

This **Mathematical Foundations of Machine Learning** course is complete, but in the future, we intend on adding extra content from related subjects beyond math, namely: probability, statistics, data structures, algorithms, and optimization. Enrollment now includes free, unlimited access to all of this future course content — over 25 hours in total.

**What you’ll learn**

- Understand the fundamentals of linear algebra and calculus, critical mathematical subjects underlying all of machine learning and data science
- Manipulate tensors using all three of the most important Python tensor libraries: NumPy, TensorFlow, and PyTorch
- How to apply all of the essential vector and matrix operations for machine learning and data science
- Reduce the dimensionality of complex data to the most informative elements with eigenvectors, SVD, and PCA
- Solve for unknowns with both simple techniques (e.g., elimination) and advanced techniques (e.g., pseudoinversion)
- Appreciate how calculus works, from first principles, via interactive code demos in Python
- Intimately understand advanced differentiation rules like the chain rule
- Compute the partial derivatives of machine-learning cost functions by hand as well as with TensorFlow and PyTorch
- Grasp exactly what gradients are and appreciate why they are essential for enabling ML via gradient descent
- Use integral calculus to determine the area under any given curve
- Be able to more intimately grasp the details of cutting-edge machine learning papers
- Develop an understanding of what’s going on beneath the hood of machine learning algorithms, including those used for deep learning
