Configuring Jupyter

We will be using Jupyter extensively in this course. We will discuss how to get started in Jupyter in class, and you can refer to the course textbook.

Once you are running Jupyter, copy and paste the following incantation into Jupyter, and run it. (Include everything, even the exclamation mark.)

!wget https://student.cs.uwaterloo.ca/~cs114/src/module-01-start.ipynb

This will download a file called module-01-start.ipynb. Open this file, and run it by clicking the ⏩ button. This will install the check module that we will use throughout the term. It also gives you a place to start working on exercises in class.
