It sounds like the lecturer is saying

going back to a more complex place. let's just talk through what we should expect before we have a go plotting in

plotting is easy to understand, the lecturer is going to show a new plot. And so, what does the whole expression "we have a go plotting in" mean?


He says

have a go at plotting in

In this case, have a go at something means attempt, try:

Definition of have a go
: to try to do something
// "I can't get the window open." "Let me have a go (at it)."

In other words, "... before we try plotting in".

I didn't think you were confused about "plotting in", but if you were, it simply means graphing (the points, function, etc.).

  • But what does plotting in mean? Without listening to the clip, I would assume it should be plotting it. The other doesn't make any sense to me. Aug 13 '19 at 5:06
  • I also found that odd. I assumed he omitted plotting in [the points, function, etc].

  • Maybe plotting in the figure? The figure is already in there, the speed versus time graph.
