Great course to develop some understanding and intuition about the basic concepts used in optimization. Last 2 weeks were a bit on a lower level of quality then the rest in my opinion but still great.
Very Well Explained. Good content and great explanation of content. Complex topics are also covered in very easy way. Very Helpful for learning much more complex topics for Machine Learning in future.

Excellent course. The material is taught in a precise, clear and intuitive manner. It would be great if a summary of the course will be given in form of some document.

It was way difficult compared to what I thought. Though I did not understand 100%, it gave me confidence to dig deeper if required. Thanks for this wonderful course.

One of the best courses on mathematics for machine learning. I already knew Calculus but this course reinforced and clarified many of these already learned concepts.

Excellent course! It helps understand to take the sandpit as an example for learning Jacobian, Hessian and steepest algorithm stuff. More than boring math formulas.

A very fast-paced course that managed to make light work of some seriously heavy maths, although it was still very challenging. Overall, it was a lot of fun!

It was a difficult topic, but it is satisfactory to understand the foundations behind the Gradient Descent algorithm. I am very satisfied with this course.
by Ashish P•
Amazing course! I wonder how instructors can teach so much in a very short span of time. Concise and succinct! Thank you so much Coursera. I am so happy.

Nice course for those want to learn machine learning. I think if there is more rigorous content such as more advanced reading materials would be better!
by Cyprien P•
Excellent walk-through, good pace and good content. I've particularly enjoyed the Python notebooks experience, it really helps developing the instinct.

Review course for multivariate calculus and basic optimization method used for curve fitting. Suggest to provide more hint for programming assignment.
by Arunish S•
The best calculus lectures so far. It really helps you o dive into the concepts of calculus used in machine learning and covers every core concepts .
by Nuria C•
Very well explained. Very nice summary of main concepts in a short course. Lots of examples to help doing the exercises, which gave a good practice.

A very good course to understand the role of Calculus in various fields. Concepts were explained in a precise manner with interesting illustrations.
by Sailesh N•
I had very good experience learning this course. I have learnt the real life application of calculus. The explanation of each videos was very good.
by Yana K•
Great course, very good introduction into calculus for ML. Great explanation of neural networks and math used for them. A bit tricky last 2 weeks.
by Saurav B•
An intuitive introduction to multivariate calculus and its applications in Machine Learning - the perfect course for a budding computer scientist.
by Max B•
I benefitted a lot from this course. I liked the fast pace and feel that I understand the math behind the machine learning algorithms better now.
