== Project setup ==
Please wave over a staff member and we'll help you pick which option is best for you computer.
 
=== 1. Install the project dependencies ===
 
Please follow the official matplotlib installation instructions at http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/installing.html
Installing matplotlib and its dependencies is somewhat involved; please ask for help if you get stuck or don't know where to start!
 
=== 2. Download and un-archive the Matplotlib project skeleton code ===
 
* http://web.mit.edu/jesstess/www/IntermediatePythonWorkshop/Matplotlib.zip
Un-archiving will produce a <code>Matplotlib</code> folder containing several Python and text files.
 
=== 3. Test your setup ===
 
Run the <code>basic_plot.py</code> script in your <code>Matplotlib</code> directory. A window with a graph should pop up.
 
===Congratulations!===
 
You've read, modified, and created scripts that plot and analyze data using matplotlib. Keep practicing!
