March 18, 2011, The Notebook Interface to Sage Mathematics Software
Time: 12:30 EDT (11:30 CDT, 9:30 PDT)
Karl-Dieter Crisman, Gordon College
This introduction to Sage will be about the big picture: the range of
functionality, what the notebook can do for collaboration and
students, etc. I'll demonstrate some basic commands, show a few
servers, and how we have used Sage pedagogically. I'll also show how
to use R in the notebook and how to publish worksheets.

Time: 1:00pm EST (12:00 CST, 10:00 PST)
A team of Project MOSAIC collaborators, led by Randall Pruim, are

We anticipate submission to CRAN later this spring.
