About

Why Jupyter Notebooks?

The Jupyter Notebook is a living online notebook, letting faculty and students weave together computational information (code, data, statistics) with narrative, multimedia, and graphs. Faculty can use it to set up interactive textbooks, full of explanations and examples which students can test out right from their browsers. Students can use it to explain their reasoning, show their work, and draw connections between their classwork and the world outside. Scientists, journalists, and researchers can use it to open up their data, share the stories behind their computations, and enable future collaboration and innovation.

For more detailed examples of how practitioners in different fields are using Jupyter Notebooks, see this blog post and the Narratives and Use Cases section of the Jupyter Documentation.

Jupyter is open-source software that is free to use under a BSD 3 license and developed and maintained by the Jupyter Project please see. For more information on how to install, use Jupyter or contribute to its development, please see their website: jupyter.org
