Jupyter Notebook Assignments

“The Jupyter Notebook is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and narrative text. Uses include: data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modeling, data visualization, machine learning, and much more.” -Project Jupyter

In Data 8, teaching and student collaboration on the projects is largely carried out with Jupyter Notebooks, which allows one to combine narrative and computational content in the same document. Jupyter Notebooks are runnable, meaning that students can edit them, interact with them, and generally explore with them live on the DataHub. They allow for interactive visualizations and immediate feedback, which are essential in the Data 8 teaching philosophy.
