So I'm watching this video to learn about neural networks : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMrbN67U9d4

At 9:07, the author says that in mathematics a list is a vector.

So for example, `[0, 1, 7, 3, 2, 6]`

would be a vector.

I don't understand how. I thought that a vector was a set of derivatives coordinates, like dx:2 and dy:3 would be a 2d vector.

Would someone please explain **in simple terms** why a list can be considered a vector, and how it works ?

Thanks.

That's programmer jargon. When a programmer talks about a

vectorit's often the same as an array or a tuple where all elements are of the same type.For example, C++ comes with a vector class with description: "Vectors are sequence containers representing arrays that can change in size."
