About this video

Many people don’t know that Python is a really powerful tool for learning math. Sure, you can use Python as a simple calculator, but did you know that Python can help you learn more advanced topics in algebra, calculus, and matrix analysis? That’s exactly what you’ll learn in this course.

The glaring question would be: if you don’t know anything about Python, then how will you code?

Don’t worry, this course is aimed at complete beginners; the instructor will take you through every step of the code. You don’t need to know anything about Python, although it’s useful if you already have some programming experience.

Even if you are not at all good at math, you will be amazed at how much better you can learn math using Python as a tool to help with your courses or your independent study. And that’s exactly the point of this course: Python programming as a tool to learn mathematics. This course is designed to be the perfect addition to any other math course or textbook that you are going through.

A lot of hands-on practical exercises come with this course, each video has at least one hands-on coding/math exercise and each section ends with “bug hunts“ where you get to find and fix math-coding errors.

By the end of the course, you will be able to understand very complex mathematical concepts with a bit of coding in Python.
