Sage Education Days 5

The fifth Sage Education Days will be held in conjunction with Sage Days 48, at the University of Washington in Seattle, June 19-21, 2013.

Funded by the National Science Foundation Division of Undergraduate Education.


  • At the University of Washington Seattle campus (on the west coast of the US, not Washington, DC).

  • June 19, 20 and 21 are expected to be full days. So plan to travel on June 18 and June 22.
  • Campus location: We have MEB 246 and MEB 248 reserved in the Mechanical Engineering Building for the week's events.

  • Sage Days 48 will happen the same week at the University of Washington with the Notebook Development as its theme.

  • Be sure to buy your plane ticket on a US carrier.

  • See the local information page for more specifics.

Mailing Lists

  • The mailing list for Sage Days 48, will be used for Education Days also. Please add yourself to this list if you are not already on it. This will be the primary vehicle for announcements, and last-minute changes during the week.

  • There is also a list specifically for discussing education and Sage.


This schedule is tentative and may change. We are leaving plenty of time in the afternoons and evenings for small working groups that will organize at the conference to get things done.

  1. Please complete, by May 31, the pre-event survey, which is part of the grant funding this event.

  2. Please add a description of projects you plan to work on to the section below.



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:

  • Learning a new area of Sage in preparation for teaching a course.
  • Preparing worksheets for a course.
  • Learning how to create interacts for the Sage library.
  • Learning how to contribute new code to Sage.

Jason Aubrey, Mike Gage, John Travis

  • Finishing at least one of the SAGE-WeBWorK bridges; hopefully the one that allows webwork problem authors to include SAGE code in webwork problems for computations and other fun.

Greg Bard

  • Making videos suitable for 100-level students to use SAGE in calculus, finite math, statistics, linear algebra, etc... (even precalculus?)

Rob Beezer

Chris Davis

  • Organize and polish the cryptography labs that I used this past year. A preliminary writeup is here and preliminary code is here.

  • Learn how others use Sage in education. For example, I've seen a Sage Notebook Worksheet that included instructions between the text cells; I did not know this was possible, and would like to learn how to produce such a worksheet myself.

Martin Flashman

  • Work on a project for visualizing functions using mapping diagrams (aka dynagraphs) for a teaching resource on the subject for beginning algebra through calculus using SAGE.
  • Work with others on how to make these visualizations easy to create making it part of a SAGE toolbox/workspace/workbook.
  • Learn how to embed SAGE in other materials- especially for my on-line calculus book. (The Sensible Calculus Book)

Jim Fowler

  • Work on using Sage serverside (instead of my javascript CAS clientside) for the online homework system for MOOCulus as well as in-person calculus courses

David Guichard

  • Work on material for a combinatorics and graph theory course.

Andrey Novoseltsev

David Perkinson

  • Work on a Sage package for hyperplane arrangements.

S Singleton

  • Develop new worksheets that complement current POGIL curriculum materials

  • See if a physical chemistry course with "no calculus by hand" is feasible (traditional approaches involving multivariable calculus is problematic for some students).
  • Utilize @interacts for exploratory worksheets.

William Stein

Karl-Dieter Crisman

  • Work on cleaning up HTML and organization etc. for my number theory book

  • Develop resources for people wanting to make Sage-enabled lecture notes?
  • Review tons of tickets
  • More stuff?

Jeff Denny

TJ Hitchman

  • Work on linear algebra IBL course notes using Sage
  • Make short "intro to cloud.sagemath.com" for students
  • learn about sage development process

Glenn Henshaw

  • Design interactives for planar lattices corresponding to ideals in quadratic number fields
  • Come up with project ideas, using sage, for a discrete math for IT class
  • Make progress towards a planar lattice class (object) in sage.

Barry Balof

  • Investigate and build course materials for Combinatorics and Graph Theory, Multivariable Calculus, and Calculus Laboratory courses.

We have more travel funding than in the past (airfare and lodging, not food). If you are involved with Sage, or allied projects, in an educational setting and have a project to work on during the workshop, send a request for funding, with details, to Rob Beezer, [email protected].

Anyone with any interest in the use of Sage in educational settings is welcome, and encouraged to attend, with or without funding.
