This is a refresher course in Mathematics for students who studied Math and Physics through 12th grade high school, but have now forgotten many of the details. In less than 4 hours I review the Math you will need to understand quantum computing concepts.
The focus is on getting you up to speed as quickly as possible. I cover what you need to know: Probability, Statistics, Boolean Logic, Complex Numbers, and Linear Algebra. You will not waste time on topics you do not need for quantum computing.
To get the most out of this course, you need to have already studied Math at a 12th grade level in high–school. This is merely a review course to help you refresh your memory. If you have not studied these topics in high school, then this 4 hour course cannot substitute for 2 years of high school Math classes.
This course reviews basic high–school Math. It doesn’t go into any details about quantum physics or quantum computing. Those topics will be discussed in subsequent courses of this series.

Most of the time it is an easy gradient that can be followed. But in between sometimes the gradient is too steep. E.g. Euler’s Formula, Polar form and Eigen Vectors should be split into at least 3 times as many videos. So for most of the parts it would be a 5 star and I am happy I bought the course. I do not think I would have learnt it anywhere else. But because some concepts are not teached extensive enough I only give 3.5 stars.

Excellent!

Absolutely great videos! If you really understand quantum computing. This video is a must for beginners!
DongCheol Kim –
Concise and easy explanation!
Brantley Walden –
This was a good match for me.
Sagar S –
I thought it would be more advance but its very basic.
Ernesto Martinez Baez –
Good outline but way too basic. A bit more depth in some topics would have been better. Or more explanations on derivations. Examples were shown to demonstrate concepts but could have been presented in a more dynamic way. For example, not showing the solution in the same slide where the example is shown.

Sections 2,3,4 felt underwhelming for anyone who has touched high school maths (who this is recommended for), Section 1 had some useful information, however was easily covered by basic (pre gcse) Computer Science knowledge Section 5 and 6 were definitely useful and the key takeaways from this course. But not worth paying for. worse in quality than a free youtube series

Sehr gr ndliche Erkl rung der Grundlagen.
Chris Wolstenholme –
A good course overall, but some subjects moved quickly without a full explanation. For example, how to find the eigen vectors/values given the original matrix. There were other places, but this is the one I remember as it was most recent. A useful revision course, though.
Graeme Thomas –
Very good explanation of complex subject
Kyle Miller –
I already know all the content but for beginners it would be very useful. Also, it does start to tie in some of the concepts to quantum computing so it is a very good basis.
Ben Ovadia –
Regular basic math course. malicious use of Quantum while there is 0 content about quantum math or physics.
Harold L Berry –
Good refresher. Sometime video would stop.

Kumaresan Ramanathan knows what he is talking about, is clear and concise. The slides are clear and helpful too. Nothing new for me so far but the way it is explained is fresh and different from most explanations / textbooks. It is therefore a great refresher.
Mike Grznar –
I learned a lot! Thank you.
Rajeev Nayar –
This was a good introduction to the basics needed. Could move along a little faster.
Pio Montenegro –
Excelente informaci n. Muy didatico.

This is a difficult subject. The course was very good. I expected to pointed to more support material like links and documents. Perhaps a book recommendation or so. But overall the course was good introduction.
