There is Math in the topic, mostly limits, a few derivatives., a few
integrals, all should be covered by any solid Calculus class. The
lecture talks a lot about probability, and I haven't seen all the
lectures, but when I took this course in Grad School, it didn't
require much probability. Knowing about a Bernouilli distribution can
come in handy.
As a Math major as an undergraduate, I was appalled at what CS
professors call a "proof" and the first lecture included a classic
example. When he was discussing one of the Theta(N) questions, he said
"Assume N is a power of 2..." which is accepted in CS classes. It
would have gotten you laughed out of the Mathematics department.
