The UTMOST project is a CCLI Type 2 grant that promotes open-source software and open-source curriculum in the undergraduate mathematics classroom. For more details and the proposal, see the About Us page.
Freely-available open software, open textbooks, and other open curricular materials can allow teachers everywhere to transform the undergraduate mathematics curriculum by tightly and seamlessly integrating mathematics software with more traditional curricular materials.
Open course materials are freely available to anyone, anywhere.
- Sage Education Days, June 13–15
Sage Edu Days 4 will be held June 13-15 at the University of Washington in Seattle.
Anyone with an interest in the use of Sage in educational settings is welcome to attend. The focus will primarily be on undergraduate mathematics, but will not be limited to just that area.
There will also be a developer conference happening that whole week, with the Sage notebook as the theme.
- Joint Meetings
- We had a booth in the TUES poster session, and the Sage booth in the conference hall was a big hit as well.
- We had a very successful booth that we shared with the Webwork folks.
- AIM Open Textbook Initiative
- American Institute of Mathematics has launched its Open Textbook Initiative. This initiative will review and provide links to high-quality open-source textbooks. This initiative is supported in part by UTMOST.
- Sage-Enhanced Textbooks
- Rob Beezer announced his work on enhancing his linear algebra textbook and also announced his work on enhancing Judson’s abstract algebra textbook. Both of these projects involved work sponsored by UTMOST.
- Embedding Sage in a webpage (beta)
You can now embed Sage into any webpage! A beta version of the Sage Cell server was released. See the documentation for embedding a computation.
