Sage: Using Open-Source Mathematics Software with Undergraduates
Karl-Dieter Crisman and Jason Grout
May 24, June 7, June 14, and June 21, 2011
Registration Fee: $100 per person ($150 for registrations received after April 12, 2011)
Sage (http://www.sagemath.org) is free, open-source, and comprehensive mathematics software. You will discover
how to use Sage to enhance your courses, customized to your institution and curriculum. There will be four
one-day online sessions during the summer. The first day will introduce you to Sage, followed by a twoweek
period during which you will, with support of the organizers, familiarize yourself with the software.
The remaining days, each one week apart, will focus on creating curricular materials, effectively using Sage
in the classroom, and feedback on content you have created in the workshop. In the weeks between the
sessions, you will explore Sage on your own schedule, with dedicated online “office hours” from the
organizers. Participants will need only a web browser to use Sage’s intuitive notebook interface.
