Please check:

  • Have you done: import numpy as np in a jupyter notebook cell?
  • Is numpy installed in the same environment as jupyter notebook was started?

I got this same error after coming back to my Jupyter notebook a day after going through the first section. I was able to resolve it my going into the field where I'd imported numpy as np and pressing shift+enter again to run that section again, then going back to the array and using shift+enter to run that again.

Chris Freeman could you kindly help me find out how to check whether NumPy is installed in the same environment that the jupyter notebook was started in? Thanks.

Sorry. Missed this tag. In the window where you start up jupyter notebook, try the following:

# test if numpy accessible in current environment
$ python

>>> import numpy
Traceback (most recent call last):
