- [Instructor] The tick marks, labels, and grids file…in your exercise folders is pre-populated with import…statements for NumPy and Pyplot…and the code snippet that we're going to use…for our demonstration in this video.…Before you begin, go to the cell that contains the import…statements and press shift enter.…In this video I'll describe techniques to make your plots…more useful, that is to make the data in your plots…easier to read and interpret.…
We'll begin by parameterizing the number of data points.…Next we'll instantiate a figure object…using plot dot figure.…Our first subplot will be added with the parameters…one, one and one.…This indicates that we intend to include…only one subplot within our figure.…Within the subplot we'll use NumPy's random generating…capability to generate a number of data points…then chain the cumulative summation method…to create a cumulative sum of all our data.…
Let's add tick marks to our plot.…We'll add five, we'll use NumPy's A range function…to create the ticks…and then we'll use the set X ticks to add the ticks…
