Please forgive my dragging up ancient history: I have been using Mathematica from version 2.2 through 7.0. I remember at least one (maybe two?) format conversions that were necessary to update old notebooks to the newer formats. I also remember at least one batch-notebook-conversion command. Unfortunately I cannot remember the details:
There was only the one switch from 2.2 .ma/.mb files to 3.0 .nb files. Possibly, you might be remembering v6 when pre-v6 notebooks were opened with an compatibility tool added to the top, but the tool had nothing to do with the file format...it was merely an aid to updating some of the code inside the notebook.
Also, .nb files are not wholly backward compatible. They'll always open in older versions, but as new features get added to Mathematica, inputs/outputs depending upon those features may not render or function correctly in older versions. The most radical such change would be in v6, when we switched from using PostScript for graphics to more native constructs in the notebooks. Which means that pretty much any v6 or later notebook is going to produce graphics which are wholly unusable by v5 or earlier (but the notebooks do open, and textual content comes through just fine).
Project Jupyter is three things: a collection of standards, acommunity, and a set of software tools. Jupyter Notebook, one part ofJupyter, is software that creates a Jupyter notebook.A Jupyter notebook is a document that supports mixing executable code, equations,visualizations, and narrative text. Specifically, Jupyter notebooks allowthe user to bring together data, code, and prose, to tell aninteractive, computational story. Whether analyzing a corpus of AmericanLiterature, creating music and art, or illustrating the engineering conceptsbehind Digital Signal Processing, the notebooks can combine explanationstraditionally found in textbooks with the interactivity of an application.
Read on to find out how we have used Jupyter notebooks for teaching and learningto benefit both our students and ourselves. Jupyter notebooks support a widerange of learning goals, including learning to program, learning domainknowledge, and practicing communication skills like storytelling. The authors ofthis book have used Jupyter notebooks to teach:
As teachers we routinely struggle to engage our students, especially when we areconstrained by the format of the course (e.g., online, 50-minute lecture),available technologies, students distractions, and/or other factors.Nevertheless, it is substantially our responsibility to create environments andexperiences within these limits that engage students in our courses. This iswhere notebooks can give you another tool to break out of the mundane, and getstudents engaged in their learning.
Engaging students in your courses requires their participation and interactionwith you, their peers, and/or the content (Moore, 1989). How, when, andwhy you use student participation in yours will, of course, depend on yourgoals, the specific objectives for teaching the content within your course, yourstudents, and other factors. Using notebooks, however, encourages participationand gives you more tools for promoting participation. Notebooks can connectstudents to authentic external audiences as well. Students can, for example,consume notebooks from other classes, and publish notebooks where others canread them.
The goal of learning is often actualized through the performance of students.This is routinely most visible by what we attempt to assess during and at theend of instruction. Using notebooks we can create a variety of a performanceopportunities for students, thereby giving them more opportunities for practiceand feedback, as well as more opportunities for us, as instructors, toassess their ability to perform.
In preparing students to apply what they have learned, striving to align whathappens in the course with what they will experience in their career isimportant. From using parallel software to mirroring workflows, we want ourstudents to experience and be prepared for the workplace. Recognizing, ofcourse, that workplaces are not static and the skills required for a career arealways emerging, using notebooks provides a flexible platform to build skillsand build portfolios of what students can do.
Creating opportunities for students to develop as learners stretch beyond theboundaries of any specific course where you may use notebooks. By enrichingtheir learning experience in your course, you will help them develop valuableskill-sets and mind-sets that they will take with them into other courses andinto their career.
Thanks to their interactivity, notebooks enable a spectrum of active learningmethods, which have been shown to increase performance in science, engineering,and mathematics (Freeman et al., 2014). To start, students can consume notebookcontent by reading and running notebooks, then move to editing or completingnotebooks as assignments. This allows students to focus on the content andconcepts, rather than just note-taking.
Instilling the habits of active learning, through the use of notebooks, willalso provide benefits beyond the boundaries of your course. Interactivity drivesengagement, interest, and exploration of concepts. Engaged students in yourcourse are more likely to be engaged learners in other courses and beyond.
You may need to save your notebook and reload it in your browser after enabling the extension to see the effect. It should be enabled by default for any notebooks you open after enabling the extension.
Throughout the notebooks, we have tried to use good practice, although PEP8 standards have not necessarily always been enforced. Various tools are available for warning about breaches of PEP8 style guidelines or even automatically formatting code so that it is style compliant, but these are disabled by default in these notebooks.
Saving a notebook will save your code and any currently displayed cell outputs (the notebooks also autosave regularly), so you can close the notebook, shutdown the associated notebook process, and then restart the notebook and return to it later.
You may already have noticed that you can embed image resources in Markdown cells. It is also worth noting that Jupyter notebooks can also embed a wide range of media types, including video and audio players.
As well as using the provided notebooks, you are also encouraged to create and save your own notebooks containing your own code experiments. You should also feel free to use the simulator to try out your own self-created challenges and to satisfy your own curiosity about whether you can get the simulated robot to perform tasks of your own devising as well as the suggested activity tasks.
In this notebook you have learned how to use Jupyter notebooks as interactive read-writable documents. Within notebooks you can write Markdown text that can be parsed into styled HTML code in Markdown cells, as well as writing and executing executable Python code in code cells.
The ultraportable notebook is less than one inch thick and uses Intel's new Core Solo processor. It's designed as an executive companion for world-weary travelers tired of lugging larger notebooks through airport security, said Paul Moore, director of mobile product marketing at Fujitsu.
"If you can get the power in there and add a little bit of style, why wouldn't somebody want it?" Moore said. Ultraportable notebooks have been slower to catch on in North America than in other parts of the world, but PC makers such as Gateway are taking a fresh look at lightweight notebooks with the release of Intel's new Core Solo and Core Duo processors.
Fujitsu also launched the new E8110, E8120 and the S7110 notebooks. All the notebooks feature Intel's Core Duo processors, but the S series models are a little lighter, at 4.5 pounds, compared with the 5.9 pounds of the E series models. The E8110 costs $1,249, while the S7110 costs $1,449. Pricing and availability for the 8210 have yet to be announced.
Elyra provides a Pipeline Visual Editor for building AI pipelines from notebooks, Python scriptsand R scripts, simplifying the conversion of multiple notebooks or scripts files into batch jobs or workflows.
I have been scribbling notes in book margins and notebooks for as long as I can remember. I have also struggled with the question of digital or handwritten. Like others have mentioned, it depends on the purpose and circumstances. But at the end of the day, if I actually write it out on paper, I will remember it. Now, just where is that piece of paper?
Also, we would like to list here interesting content created by the community.If you wrote some notebook(s) leveraging ? Transformers and would like be listed here, please open aPull Request so it can be included under the Community notebooks.
On windows and mac OS-s, anaconda install anaconda navigator, agraphical interface that let you access the most important anacondarelated programs. This includes jupyterlab and jupyter notebooksfor interactive coding, spyder text editor that is somewhat similarto RStudio, just for python, and anaconda-aware command lineinterface. The latter is useful if you want to run python programfrom command line.
In recent years, it has become increasingly popular to use pythonthrough an interactive web-based environment jupyter notebook.Notebooks consists of code cells and markdown cells. Code cellscan contain code which can be executed with a simple click (orkeyboard shortcuts, e.g. Shift-Enter). The code is executed throughipython, so ipython tools are available in notebooks too.Themarkdown cells contain markdown text and can be rendered by a similarclick or shortcut. The big advantage of notebooks is the immediatefeedback, one can write the code a few lines at time, execute these,and immediately correct for potential errors. But notebooks are not asolution for every problem. In particular, one may prefer to runcomplex tasks without user interaction. Notebooks also permit to runcells out-of-order and in this way they can cause errors you do notsee intraditional coding. 781b155fdc
