Mathematics tutorials

Goals of the tutorials

I have begun to write a series of tutorials (with exercises) aimed at students of linguistics and cognitive science with little University-level mathematical background, who are wanting to take courses on computational cognitive science, natural language processing, or basic machine learning.

The content of these tutorials is not intended to be everything you'll ever need to know, but is intended to go over some of the basic notation and ideas which many of these courses assume you already know.
