If you have a Calculus Background, you can't go wrong with Harvard Stat 110 lectures (online).

If not, you also cannot go wrong with:

I did this statistics course

But for the visualization part of this project, I just used online sources

I'm taking the course ' Introduction to Probability and Data ' on coursera, and the professor is explaining the how random sampling and random assignment is an essential part of an experiment to be able to generalize the results and deduce the cause.

Advice for a mathematical moron

I am interested in learning Machine Learning as a hobby and, maybe, in the distant future as a career. The problem is, I have a graduate degree in a totally unrelated field and am a dunce when it comes to math.

I read the Super Harsh Guide and quickly realized that Elements is well out of my depth, so I began reading the (apparently) easier Introduction to Statistical Learning; the material covered within is still somewhat beyond me. Are there any suggestions as to where to start for someone who knows very little math beyond basic introductory algebra? I know it's a big ask and I'm aware that I'll likely never work at Google Brain, however I'm really interested in the topic and would like to become more educated for my own personal satisfaction.

I have been looking at the Intro to Probability and Data course for introductory statistics and the Mathematics for Machine Learning: Linear algebra and Calculus courses for general math. Do these seem sufficient for getting into the Intro book? Contrarily, is this overkill/should I just read the Introduction to Stat Learning book and glean as much as I can without any prep? Will I even be able to understand these courses with only a basic algebra background?

I know this is a text dump; thanks for reading and please know that any insight is much appreciated.

This map was made as a part of my final project for one of Coursera/Duke's Statistics in R class.
Data was provided by the class, sourced from the CDC's annual BRFSS survey.

Code is hosted on my Github in the form of an R Markdown file.

I am planning to update with the 2017 BRFSS data when it comes out.

No worries. I think DS Math Skills is ok if you want a review of very basic math topics, but there are better courses by Duke:

Introduction to Probability and Data Inferential Statistics Bayesian Statistics Linear Regression and Modeling
