> 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

> A team of Project MOSAIC collaborators, led by Randall Pruim, are  
> developing an R package with data and utilities for Calculus and  
> Statistics. Come see a demonstration of some of the features  
> currently implemented and join a discussion of potential features to  
> add.
> The mosaic package is already available at R-forge or from R using  
> the command
> install.packages("mosaic", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org")
> We anticipate submission to CRAN later this spring.
