EMAB tutoring

Penn's Engineering Master's Advisory Board (EMAB) has announced Tutoring Program for master's students in Machine Learning. This program will serve as a resource to help students strengthen their skills in the area. Students can drop in at one of our sessions whenever they need help -- no commitment required and free of charge. If a student is interested in this program, they are encouraged to learn about our program at https://pennemab.weebly.com/tutoring.html.

primers

Here are primers on calculus, vector geometry, LaTeX. In addition, here are IPython notebooks introducing Python (including numpy and pandas), linear algebra, the singular value decomposition (SVD), and probability.
