Insight into the Mathematics used in this course

I’m done with the Week 1 of course 2 and have understood everything related to the topics covered in the course. However there are some math concepts like L2 & L1 Regularization and norms that i don’t fully grasp yet. Hence it is difficult to visualize how these come into play when they are used in the programming assignments. Please point me to where i can get more insight into these. Thanks!

Hi there,

Here is a thread with a link to an external page which offers a good explanation of L1 ans L2 regularization:

Note: if you are interested in maths for ML: Deeplearning.AI recently announced a new course which could be interesting for you in the future. FYI: Mathematics for Machine Learning and Data Science Specialization
