Professors teaches in so much friendly manner. This is beginner level course. Don't expect you will dive deep inside the Linear Algebra. But the foundation will become solid if you attend this course.

Great way to learn about applied Linear Algebra. Should be fairly easy if you have any background with linear algebra, but looks at concepts through the scope of geometric application, which is fresh.

ınstructors are engineers rather than mathematicians. This is very valuable because their pure focus is on application of relevant subjects rather than pure math point of view. of Dissecting relevant topics and applying them was a gem for me, rather go through 500 pages abstract algebra course without being able to tell whether I will use them in ML and if so where. One who has some background in LA will spend more time on course material, otherwise be prepared to watch some additional tutorials on youtube regarding subject matter. But instructors make this clear upfront and also provide links as well.

The course is great especially for a brush up of first year concepts for someone like me, but I couldn't help smiling throughout after realizing that the way this entire course series is presented is by reflecting the video lectures while they write on a transparent board about a vertical mirror plane. Although this must have been rather simple to implement, the idea is something incredible to my mind. Classic college education never exposed me to the ideas and a need to 'build intuition' for things like this course has. Kudos, professors!

Excellent course! I serve in academia with a terminal degree in mathematics, but yet I learned many interesting connections specifically aligned with applications. This course is designed in a way it can be easily followed by anyone with a basic mathematical background but, yet can equally be enjoyed by someone with a strong mathematical background. After taking this course, I got motivated to enroll in 'Multivariable calculus' and PCA to complete the specialization. Thank you all who put the course (and the specialization) together!!!

Fantastic course. Much like what the reviews I read had anticipated. It is rigorous, the professors are competent and empathetic, and I feel they combined the right amount of theory with lots of practice (including on programming which was a first for me). Finally, they also made it clear that this is not a college-level course on linear algebra but instead a course on linear algebra that is specifically applicable to machine learning (as its title suggests) which is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you, Imperial College London!

I found this course excellent. For quite a long time, I have been struggling to understand what Eigenvectors and values mean and why do we bother to focus so much on Orthonormality. This course dealt with these concepts in a simple and lucid manner. It built the necessary math and intuition, which I liked the most. Also, this course really explained well why Matrices and its knowledge is important as it is useful in so many applciations. I am happy with the course and expect the same utility from the next course in the specialization

Course is not boring from start to the end and course teacher are really good at speaking and teaching. They have great passion and they're fun. I like them a lot. I hadn't hard time to learn and make progress. Course is also very informative and made me passionate about expand my informations about the Machine Learning and other ares connected with Machine Learning like Data Science. Again I am thankful to everyone who made this course accessible to me and people who passionate to learn about Machine Learning core concepts!

Both the professors right from the very beginning were not only very knowledgable but the way they delivered the lectures, it was really great. From the transformations to the rotations and shears, to the concepts of eigen values and page rank, this course is just so satisfactory for those who love mathematics . I learned a lot of things from this course, I started looking at vectors a lot differently. I would like to thank both the professors from the bottom of my heart for delivering such beautiful concepts.

I see why some people are unhappy with this course (may be difficult to follow if you haven't seen Linear Algebra before / assignments are sometimes confusing), but I personally loved it. I took this course as a refresher for the main Linear Algebra concepts I last studied almost 10 years ago and the lecturers did a great job presenting the material in a very visual, intuitive, and over high-level way, making sure that you really get a feel of the main concepts instead of being buried in notation and formulas.

A great introduction into linear algebra for machine learning. The instructors do present the subjects in a very understandable and efficient way. There are enough exercises to practice the theory. Coding assignments help to apply the practice in Python code using numpy. I enjoyed doing this course and will definitely finish the complete specialisation! Maybe, it would be nice, to get a bit deeper into the matter. Getting a bit more math background and some more exercises to make sure to understand the topic.

This 5-week course, which can be completed in the evenings of one week, quickly give me intuition about matrices/linear algebra and their use in machine learning. Also, it's a step toward understanding PCA/ dimension reduction. The teachers are really good in explaining the difficult material, and there are enough short tests to practice. I recommend the course to all data scientists who are already able to pick a prediction algorithm with high accuracy, but want to understand the math behind it better.

This course is a great introduction course to linear algebra. I am a quantitative finance guy and, to be honest, already forgot almost 90% of linear algebra I learned in college. It is always a little painful for me to code matrix multiplication during my work. I found this course before I went to amazon to buy a text book. This course saved me so much time and I really learned what I need to learn. Thank you so much.
The only con of this course is that: the python coding assignment is too easy.

Course would be easy if you have any background with linear algebra, but concepts through the scope of geometric application, which is fresh give new perspective to whole linear algebra than how its taught in class or Uni. Amazing instructors ! and great way to visualize things ! Please note This course is not suited for beginners and people looking for an introductory lecture to Linear Algebra! please have some introductory knowledge before you start off with this course . Thanks !

It's SPLENDID!!! The courses covers all the relevant topics in very intuitive way, and gives a deep and concrete understanding of the underlying Linear Algebra topics !!!!
The assignments are designed in a way that it tests the skills in great way alongside giving opportunities to explore the dynamics and have fun !!!
It also teaches on programming skills by it's programming assignments and thus develops the overall skills needed to boost start any ML topic/ course !!!!!

Excellent course to get you to refresh or provide you with solid foundations of linear algebra, provided you supplement the course content with additional reading where you are either a bit "rusty" or completely new to a particular topic. I also find the quizzes and assignments particularly helpful in cementing your understanding of the material. Overall, I had a great experience and will strongly recommend this course to anyone on the quest to become a data scientist.

This is an excellent course as a refresher of the basic concepts in my college linear algebra. The instructors really put a lot of effort into making all the course materials. I enjoy the animations a lot! I am not a pro in Pandas but the programming assignments are actually very well-explained and perhaps a bit too easy. I'd thought they would put some plots and twists in the programming assignments. Very helpful course and great instructors. Thank you!

This course is excellent and it provided me a very good refresh about the linear algebra theory that I’ve learned in my graduate studies. The professor are great, the videos have an appropriate duration, and they help you build the intuition incrementally every week. The Python assignments are relative easy but they are of great value. I definitely recommend this course and I am looking forward to start the next course of the specialization.

A comprehensive course in Mathematics and Linear Algebra. If you're not related, or with rusted maths, don't be afraid, it will work for you, but it will demand some amount of time. A good time of course. Here I learned things I didn't fully understand. Great teachers. Some misses on explanations, will push you to Khan, tutorials, or books. Recommended course for everyone interested in getting in ML, AI, DS. A great introductory course.

Excellent course for those who like me struggle with intuition of math behind machine learning. This is not for beginners and it is not a general linear algebra course, it assumes that you have already a good grasp of the theory. The course for me took the theory I had and increased my level of understanding in how to apply it to machine learning. Also the videos are fantastic, I've never been so enthusiastic about doing math before :D

As a student of mathematics, I have read linear algebra in 2nd year in my university. But I keep finding the application of linear algebra. This course introduce a new way exploring linear algebra core topics. All the course video,practice quiz and assignment and graded quiz are excellent. Specially I like the Eigen theory problem and visualising matrices and vectors part. Thanks all the course instructor and Imperial college London.

Very very excellent course on Linear Algebra by Imperial College of London :
I would like to thank @David Dye for teaching the intuition and essence of Linear Algebra.
Also @Sam Cooper, what a great teacher he is, couldn't wait to start the next course of the Specialization.
The best thing about this course is that whatever we learned, we applied all the stuffs side by side in ML.
Absolutely enjoyed the course. Thank You Coursera

Certainly the best online courseware I have attended. Prof. Dye breaks down most typical concepts of mathematics in simple and easy to understand blocks that makes this course fit for anyone. He brings out an interesting dimension to every concept that makes you comprehend it well and you're equipped to understand the practical applications of it. Would recommend to anyone looking brush their concepts of linear algebra.

This is such a great course for student already have background about college level linear algebra knowledge, but don't know the under relationship among those terminologies. For instance, after this course I finally know what is dot product means, what is eigen characteristics. The content of this course are well prepared, this is such a masterpiece from Imperial College London. Thanks to all stuff behind this course.

The connection between machine learning ad vectors got clearer as the course moved ahead. The quizes are detailed and requires actual understanding of the concept which is not hard to grasp once you pay attention to the lecturers who themselves are so passionate about the subject, makes me excited to learn too. I can say, I finally, after leaving high school, have understood high school maths and it's applications.
