I've just finished the coursera's Mathematics for Machine Learning: Linear Algebra (https://www.coursera.org/learn/linear-algebra-machine-learni...) and I'd say its very good for beginners
A bit weird to add a negative review, but here goes:
Is _not_ a good introduction. The instructors are all over the damn place, and you will spend much of your time finding better explanations from other sources. Wish I hadn't started with this. On the plus side, you will get a certificate at the end.
⬐ pumanoirIndeed weird, because the course you mentioned is actually excellent. However, it was designed for people who had (somehow) already seen the subjects in an abstract and unapplied setting (such as a math class at uni). They refresh or refocus the subjects with a geometric intuition and with some concrete applications in mind; which I found quite useful and beautiful. This class is more like a more developed version of 3b1b videos on LA.⬐ elbearIt's funny, because as I was reading your comment, I was thinking of 3b1b. He's doing great work by visualizing abstract concepts, but I think what he does mainly helps people who have already gone through the material. If it's your first time encountering the topic, you'll likely feel lost or not see the point.
What 3b1b does still brings a lot of value, so I don't want to take away anything from his work.
