This course requires prior exposure to:

- Probability theory
- Multivariable calculus
- Linear algebra
- Regression

Each of these concepts will be applied throughout the course, and no time will be spent reviewing the foundational elements of each concept.

In addition, we will work in the R programming language throughout the course, but no prior programming experience is required. We will spend the first three weeks going through exercises to get up to speed in R.

Students are encouraged to complete this self assessment prior to registering for the course to self-assess familiarity with these concepts.

This optional assignment allows you to self-assess whether you have the prerequisite knowledge required for this course. Take this three-question self-assessment quiz. It shouldnâ€™t take more than 10-20 minutes to complete, and answers can be compared with the solutions.

If you have trouble answering these questions, you may find this course challenging and may want to take other courses or review refresher materials on these topics prior to taking this course.
