With the commercial successes of machine learning and cloud computing, many business people need *just enough math* to take advantage of open source frameworks for big data. This video course from Paco Nathan and Allen Day presents useful areas of advanced math in easy-to-digest morsels. If you’re familiar with high school Algebra 2 and basic statistics, you’re good to go.

You’ll learn newly introduced math concepts through business use cases, brief Python code examples, and lots of figures and illustrations. By the end of the course, you’ll understand how to leverage complex graphs, sparse matrices, Bayesian priors, optimization solvers, and other tools.
