Here is my recommendation. Start with stats and just be prepared to look some things up as a reference (algebra and other math topic you forgot). This way you start to learn the things you want (stats) right away. It will also help motivate why you are learning the algebra. If you start with algebra, you may lose interest or motivation before you actually get to statistics. That is just my recommendation, take it or leave it.

Thanks for commenting and asking,

If I wanted to reboot my math education, should I start at algebra and work my way back up into statistics?

I’d like to get a better grasp of stats/ML, but want to rebuild the foundation of my math understanding from ground zero.

Thx,

Jeff
