So, curiousity won me over and I've been making my way through the Microsoft Professional Program in Artificial Intelligence curriculum on edX, and they include a course called Essential Math for Machine Learning (two courses, if you count "Python Edition" and "R Edition" individually) and I'm curious about what others think about wht they chose to include and the pace. The lab files for the R edition are here
, the python ones appear to be download only
. The course itself is videos of the instructor basically reading from the lab notebooks, so far, with periodic graded quizzes after each model and some ungraded knowledge checks throughout.
