How much Math do I need to become a Data Scientist?
The topics in maths I know are calculus, linear algebra, and statistics
A friend of mine who is studying Mathematics at the University of Ibadan,Nigeria say that I need to know Statistics &Probability, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Optimization Methods.
You'll need a lot of Maths to become a Data Scientist. But if you just want to become a software developer or engineer, then you won't need much math in real life. What you will need will be problem solving, logic building, and a creative mind.
If you really want to become a Data Scientist...who cares? You can learn the math you need just like you learn coding. Good Luck on your journey 🍀😊
As data scientist you need to use logical and statistical methods to analyze data. For example you can make physical simulations to find relationships between features. I think basic knowledge of statistics are a part of mathematics but not only. I hope that helps.
As a Data scientist you will be using a large number of libraries making the calculations for you what you really need it to understand and improve mathematics understand it's not know a bunch of formulas it's about know how to use past data to give predict outcomes
not much. but the more math you know, the better programmer you wiil get
The trinity is Statistics, Linear Algebra, and Calculus.
If you know that x = 5 means x can be used in order to reference 5 You can be data scientist as we use that expression x with for example additional keywords as computer need to be told that you want x = 5 so when we use x you replace that with 5 const x = 5 is like x = 5 in school math const is for a PC and if a teacher was a PC we were going to use const also from school... Meaning you do it with understanding of math that you already know... 👌😃🔥
