Dear author,
Whenever i start any ML course I see maths coming into picture. I have studied math when in school as a teenager but forgotten about it as I am in IT industry since couple of decades. Can you share some tips on how to learn math for machine learning ?

All math concepts are not required i guess but familiarity of  some topics are essential.
1)Linear Algebra
2)Basic Calculus/single/multivariate
3)Stats/Probability

Sounds like basic understanding should be sufficient to get the ball rolling.
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
