Adding titles to your plots

We have covered the very basics of creating plots in python! Next we will learn about some other tools that we can use to spice up our plots a little bit! These methods can be used with any plot and not just the line plot that we just created.

First up, Adding a title to your plot! Titles are very important to help other people who are looking at your work understand your thinking process. Because of this, we are going to add a title to our plot that says: 'plot of y = x'

Below I implemented this in the IDE!

# Import out libraries import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np # Create the x and y vectors x = np.array(range(100)) y = x # Plot! plt.plot(x,y) # Add a title plt.title('plot of y = x') # Show the plot
