TypeError: plot_function() got an unexpected keyword argument 'ylim'

I am following along the lesson 3 code but I am getting this issue

plot_function(
    f,
    tx=None,
    ty=None,
    title=None,
    min=-2,
    max=2,
    figsize=(6, 4),
)

Error Message is written below

This works fine for me. Maybe something changed accidentally in the definition of plot_function? You can check plot_function?? from a notebook cell, it should be:

def plot_function(f, title=None, min=-2.1, max=2.1, color='r', ylim=None):
    x = torch.linspace(min,max, 100)[:,None]
    if ylim: plt.ylim(ylim)
    plt.plot(x, f(x), color)
    if title is not None: plt.title(title)

or try to run a fresh copy of the notebook and see if it still gives that error.

My plot_function() is like this

def plot_function(f, tx=None, ty=None, title=None, min=-2, max=2, figsize=(6,4)):
    x = torch.linspace(min,max, 100)
    fig,ax = plt.subplots(figsize=figsize)
    ax.plot(x,f(x))
    if tx is not None: ax.set_xlabel(tx)
    if ty is not None: ax.set_ylabel(ty)
    if title is not None: ax.set_title(title)

Ok, it seems like you are using the 2020 version of the course. The current version uses a different plot_function which I was refering to (and which has the y_limit parameter), maybe there was a mixup. You can find the current course here and the function in particular in notebook 04. Does this solve you problem? :slight_smile:

No I am actually going through course 22 but I don’t knew how this is happening , I have newly installed it

Can you tell me from where are are importing all that

I did not import this. I used the one defined in the first cell of 04-how-does-a-neural-net-really-work.ipynb from the course22 repo. :slight_smile:

Thanks for your help @benkarr , I had the same issue as @mohitmishra . It seems we just had that function imported from fastbook. I wonder weather we should send a PR updating the function there to the one used in the course lectures.
