- September 8, Intoduction to Sage

How to get started easily with Sage, basic syntax and commands, some gotchas and a few demonstrations of the power of Sage. For the absolute beginner. [Worksheet] - September 15, Intoduction to TeX

How to get started easily with TeX, the mathematical word processor. We'll slowly build up a sample document with some structure and some fancy-looking mathematics. For the absolute beginner.

Built-Up Nonsensical TeX Demo [Source] [PDF] - September 22, Sage and Calculus

More about Sage with an emphasis on basic algebra, limits, derivatives, integrals, series and interactive demos. [Source] - October 6, Introduction to PDFScreen and Beamer

An introduction to PDFscreen and Beamer ("powerpoint" for math). For the absolute beginner who knows some TeX.

[Sample Nonsense Beamer] - Oct 13, Python and Sage

Python is a standard, and very popular, programming language. It is also the language that holds Sage together. Which means you can control a collection of Sage-specific commands with the commands of a multipurpose language that you can use elsewhere. And Python also comes with lots of goodies of its own. Prof. Bentson will be our guide to introductory Python, with a view to using it within Sage. - TBA, Virtual Machine Installation

Linux is the best place to run Sage and TeX. Love your PC or Mac? Good. We'll install a version of Linux you can run in a window on your current machine by using VirtualBox. Don't worry - you can get rid of it easily later.

Meetings are on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM in Thompson 391.
