What are we going to plot?
To begin, we need some data that we can plot. The easiest of such is just a line where y = x. So to begin plotting we need to create a vector for y and vector for x.
I will do this with the following code:
x = list(range(100)) y = x
This will give me back 2 vectors. x which is
[0,1,2,3,....,98,99,100] and y which is just a copy of that.
If for example, we wanted to plot y = x^2, we would use the library numpy and just square the entire vector!
# Import the numpy lib import numpy as np # Create a vector x which is a numpy array x = np.array(range(100)) y = x**2
In the next slide, we will use these new vectors to create our very first plots!!
