Allowed libraries (Pandas?)


in the project description it says to use no external libraries except for visualization.
" In Python. No external libraries allowed! For this first project, we want you to implement and use
the methods we have seen in class. Only NumPy. Visualization libraries are always allowed, but only for visualization purposes."

Does this mean Pandas is not allowed? While I understand that the idea is for us to not use external, pre-built libraries for machine learning, it feels weird to not be able to use such a common tool in Data Science with Python.

Best regards,
