Using Jupyter notebooks

Jupyter notebooks that we use in class are listed on the class schedule page. Click on a Jupyter notebook link there to download the file. To access the notebook:
  • put the file in some directory
  • In anaconda, click "jupyter", then navigate to that directory with the notebook file, and select the file
  • Or, if you're not using anaconda, open a terminal, go to the directory where you put the notebook file, and type
    jupyter notebook
    This will open a tab in your browser where you can select a notebook file to work with.
For info on how to format text and write code in Jupyter notebooks, see this Jupyter notebook.
