Tutorials for Sage 2010 PREP workshop
This page is the home of tutorials from the summer 2010 MAA PREP workshop "Sage: Using Open-Source Mathematics Software with Undergraduates" (funding provided by NSF DUE 0817071).
The first tutorial is about the absolute basics of evaluating mathematics, defining functions, finding help, and annotating Sage worksheets.
The second tutorial demonstrates the basics of using symbolic expressions and plotting in Sage.
The third tutorial introduces the most common uses of Sage within the (extended) calculus sequence.
We also provide an introduction to the most basic programming skills needed for advanced use of Sage.
The interactive capabilities of Sage for classroom demonstration or lab use are relatively easy to use; this worksheet has little dialogue, but shows how one can go from a simple command to a complex "Sagelet" in a slow, step-by-step manner.
We also have additional mini-tutorials for specific subfields of undergraduate mathematics as implemented in Sage and its components.
