Dead Kernel When Importing Pandas to Jupyter Notebook

I’m working on the intro to Jupyter Notebook. It requires me to:

import pandas as pd

When I try to run this code in jupyter, I get an error that says “The kernel appears to have died. It will restart automatically.”

I have Anaconda installed per the course instructions. I’m running an old Macbook pro (2009 with High Sierra)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Have you tried importing in a basic python interactive console, does it still break? There are some routes to debug a little in Jupyter that you may want to look into.

I’d suggest having a web search for that particular error, it’s not something you’d see often (hopefully).
