About this course

In this unit, we will learn about the fundamentals of linear algebra, including how to perform mathematical operations using matrices and vectors. After learning how to do these operations mathematically, we will implement them in Python using NumPy arrays. To cap off the course, we will apply our knowledge in a project on image transformations.

  • The progress I have made since starting to use codecademy is immense! I can study for short periods or long periods at my own convenience - mostly late in the evenings.
