# Should I go back and learn more on statistics before I learn the machine learning course ?

I feel like I need to go back to my textbook and refresh my memory on statistics before I go on with learning machine learning. Am on the 10th grade so will i need to learn stuff higher that my grade ? πSHAROFππΊπΏ JesusCanulk π²π½ ChillPillSukki Gaurav Agrawal Rahul Mangwani Prashanth Kumar wave rider $hardul B NezhnyjVampir

New Answeryes sure ... you will need statistics for measuring how spreaded the data is so its must to have a good grasp for it ... here are some awesome tuts .. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8dPuuaLjXtNM_Y-bUAhblSAdWRnmBUcr and also some linear algebra and calculus is needed (calculus you will learn in 11th i guess) but if you want to skip calculus so its ok(for sololearn course ) but here are some resources [limear algebra] https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZHQObOWTQDPD3MizzM2xVFitgF8hE_ab [calculus ] if you want to give it a try https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZHQObOWTQDMsr9K-rj53DwVRMYO3t5Yr after learning calculus see for gradient descent https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZHQObOWTQDNU6R1_67000Dx_ZCJB-3pi

Absolutely, you need to. Machine Learning basically uses basic mathematics and statictics and usually, data returned must be run thriugh some form of graph or something. Not just Statictics, get a good grasp of Mathematics before you major the course.

Thanks Prashanth Kumar I will check the links out . Wow who knew I would need this much dedication for this course π

yes you need to learn: statistics probability linear algebra but if these are too hard just sklearn everything
