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.
Excellent course. I completed this course with no prior knowledge of multivariate calculus and was successful nonetheless. It was challenging and extremely interesting, informative, and well designed.

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.
by Dr. S R J K•
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.
by Mohamed R•
one of the best courses I have ever had.
thanks to instractors and Imperial College London
thanks so much for that specilization it helped me alot
by Aaron B•
Excellent class! I feel like I finally understand calculus after all the rote memorization I had in my high school and college calculus courses.
by Shaiman S•
Mr. Sam Cooer and Mr. David dye made things very simple to learn. However, inclusion of some more numerical methods can make this course ideal!
by BALAJI R•
That's some excellent course to take for! Awesome explanations for the concepts and I strongly recommend khan academy for further explanations.
by Amar n•
Just Brilliant!!! Very well structured with very clear assignments. Doing the assignments is a must if you want to get clarity on the subject.
by Mark J T•
The course is a very concise and excellent introduction to the calculus necessary. It answers a lot of questions with respect to optimization.
by Phạm N M H•
This is one of three course in Mathematics for ML, it'll give you intuition for understand the true meaning of ML/DL/AI , it's all about math
by Amartya M•
Quite a good overview int the concepts. Lucid explanation and good quizzes. Would recommend Khan Academy Multivariate calculus on top of it
by Julio G•
Great introduction into optimisation. Looking forward to continuing with the 3rd course. Thanks Imperial College for having this available.
by Roshan B•
An excellent review course for those who had not used calculus for a while. The derivation of the back propagation algorithm was excellent!
by Gopalan O•
Excellent course on multivariate calculus and application of calculus in Machine Learning. Loved the assignments and the programming ones.
Prof. Dye's presentation is so polished - the examples are exactly the type to help cover much ground, while building a strong intuition.
