## Main Question or Discussion Point

Background:

The first semester (in the center of a page, there are outlines of lectures):

Could you recommend textbooks for these three classes? And tell me whether it's a good idea to pick up some proof book in meantime (e.g. How to Prove It - Velleman) as preparation.

- math 1 (mindless applying of 'algorithms' to solve an exercise)
- math 2 (the same)
- Introduction to Linear Algebra - Gilbert Strang (this is a one big decomposition book. But thanks to it I'm able to somewhat understand PCA and SVM)
- Introduction to Probability - Dimitri P. Bertsekas, John N. Tsitsiklis (halfway through)
