Proposal for Recorder.plot to use scientific notation for the x axis

The learning rate finder uses Mathematical notation for the x axis


However, the documentation and all notebooks actually use scientific notation. So if you e.g. want to use 10^-3 from the plot it’s common to write 1e-3 in Python. I’ve found this a little confusing and would prefer the x axis to use scientific notation too:


I have a patch ready at

and could make this a PR if wanted.


Seems reasonable - I’ve made that change now (although using a different implementation).

So you don’t need to mentally convert 10^-3 into 1e-3 when writing your floating point literals in Python code anymore :smile:
