ABSTRACT:
This workshop will provde a hands-on introduction to one of the most recent developments in computer tools for mathematics, the SAGE Mathematics Computing Environment. SAGE is a comprehensive package which addresses mathematical topics ranging from rational arithmetic and elementary algebra to some of the most advanced research topics in Number Theory and Discrete Mathematics. In addition to its wide ranging collection of tools, SAGE is important because it is Open Source, free, and accessible with nothing more than a modern Web browser. This introductory session will focus on using SAGE as a tool for exploring elementary topics in mathematics. The session will be accessible to mathematics teachers at all levels. The topics that will be explored will be restricted to precalculus material, and potential pedagogical applications will be highlighted. However, be prepared to learn some new facts about pi, Fibonacci numbers, and Mandelbrot's set.
