Installing SymPy

To work with symbolic math in Python, the SymPy library needs to be installed. SymPy comes pre-installed with the Anaconda distribution of Python. If you are not using the Anaconda distribution of Python, SymPy can be installed with the Anaconda Prompt. Use the command:

> conda install sympy

Alternatively, you can install SymPy using the Python package manager pip. The command below installs SymPy into the current environment.

$ pip install sympy

You can confirm your SymPy installation by opening up the Python REPL and typing the two commands below.

>>> import sympy
>>> sympy.__version__

The ouput above shows SymPy version '1.4' is installed.
