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.

Along with the advanced and popular technique, this course gives me impressive insight over how machine learning works. But it would be much better if the concept in linear algebra combines more with this course.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. The materials were good and the course content was good enough to pass all the assignments and quizzes. This is way better than the linear algebra course in this specialization.
i think some of concepts touched the surface and it was difficult to get a deep understanding .Probably the course could have provided some external links for those topics where people could read .

Superb quality. The way instructors teach is really innovative. The course is good in terms of the area it covers but lacks depth, but is a good starting point if you want to dwell more in detail.
por Keshav B•
Very informative refresher on the basics of differentiation, though some of the later topics could have been fleshed out more (i.e. Taylor Series, Lagrange Multipliers, etc). Overall very good.

I wish, Linear Regression was taught with a little more clarity. Seemed like too many things were happening. Otherwise, a very good course. Really enjoyed the back-propagation week.
por Xiao F•
the basic concepts are explained clearly, but the step of the lecture became more fast than the course of linear algebra. More detail proof and application of theory is expected.
por Florian C•
The course starts off somewhat too basic for my taste but still gives a great intuition for some off the fundamental concepts underlying gradient descent and machine learning.

The course is still a bit young, some errors appear here and there sometimes, and some parts of it are a bit steep.
Otherwise, this is a good course, focused on derivatives.
por Prathamesh P C•
They should explain concepts in detail. They just explained really tough concepts in 5 min and gave much much harder assignments which was really frustrating at many times.
Practice makes about 65% of this course, 3Blue!Brown and Khan Academy are indispensable in this course too. The course is more like an overview than an in-depth study.

1.Week 5 should be taken in separate module dedicated to statistics.
2.The duration of course can be increased.
3. Week 3 and week 4 can be made more detailed

Very good course but especially while approaching the end of the course some steps are being skipped or not explained entirely which can be a bit confusing
por Venkatavishnu T•
This course is a good refresher, bringing all the important aspects and how it can be applied for machine learning also combining with linear algebra
por Satpal S R•
This was a great course for learning multivariate calculus required for Machine Learning. I am thankful to the creators of this awesome course.
por Angelo S d O•
Nice refresher! Excellent instructors! Not recommended as a first Multivariate Calculus course though. I would go for MIT OpenCourseware first.
por Viacheslav P•
Good course, but some things seem to be not well discussed and explained, I had to refer to another resources to understand what's going on.
por Patrick F•
Really good course, would recommend! 4 Stars, because there is no written transcript with the Formula and examples in the videos available.
por Valentinos P•
A very nice course that builds your intuition in Multivariate Calculus and also introduces you to some basic consepts in machine learning.
por Aman A•
This was a very succinct and comprehensive course and at times I felt a bit fast paced and consequently the assignments harder to solve
por Vikram N•
Good course. Clarity of content in the last two weeks (i.e. weeks 5 and 6) can be improved. Overall a fantastic learning experience.
por Rachel Z•
Excellent course overall. I really enjoyed the sessions taught by Sam Cooper. He explains concepts very clearly...great teacher.
por Prashant D•
Good course. The lecturer uses a number of illustrations and has a nice easy style to explain the key ideas. Overall enjoyable
por Mason C•
Great overall, but some of the teaching falls short of clarity, too much hand waving, and programming exercises can be obtuse.
por Kailash Y•
This is a nice course for beginners, as it relies on intuition for the explanation. Also, this has very interesting exercises.
