MAA PREP Program, Summer 2011

Registration is now closed

Sage ( is free, open-source, and comprehensive mathematics software. You will discover how to use Sage to enhance your courses, customized to your institution and curriculum. There will be four one-day online sessions during the summer. The first day will introduce you to Sage, followed by a two-week period during which you will, with support of the organizers, familiarize yourself with the software. The remaining days, each one week apart, will focus on creating curricular materials, effectively using Sage in the classroom, and feedback on content you have created in the workshop. In the weeks between the sessions, you will explore Sage on your own schedule, with dedicated online “office hours” from the organizers.

No previous usage of Sage is assumed.


Online workshop dates are: May 24, June 7, June 14, and June 21, 2011. Each day we will meet online from 11 AM to 1 PM and 3 PM to 5 PM Eastern Daylight Time, in order to allow participants from as many North American time zones as possible.
