Participants from the test sites for the NSF UTMOST project will have first priority for funding, though we will support travel for a few participants with a demonstrated interest and experience in using Sage in educational settings. We also expect to have a similar workshop in Summer 2012 which will have twice the available funding.


Sign up by adding your name to the "Participants" list above. Email Rob Beezer at [email protected] if you'd rather not figure out how to edit the wiki page and he'll add your name.



Sage Days typically allow a great deal of unstructured time to work on projects, either in groups or with the assistance of experts that are available. Please plan to have a project to work on. Examples could be:

Career Advice Related to Trying New Things Before Tenure

Other materials related (perhaps tangentially) to education and Sage

* A bunch of Java applets made with Mathematica, obsoleted by factors out of my (DanDrake's) control:
