An introduction into how SageMath may help you in your research,
collaboration, and teaching.


SageMath is free and open-source mathematical software which started in 2004. Its features cover many aspects of mathematics, from basic arithmetic and calculus to advanced research mathematics in algebra,mcombinatorics, numerical mathematics, analysis, and number theory.


Its open architecture gives it various distinct advantages over similar sofware, such as Maple, Mathematica, and Magma:


It is made for the Cloud, allowing you to use it without installing any software yourself. This makes it ideal for deployment in the classroom. Once you're ready you can also install it as a native application on your own computer.


You can easily embed functional code snippets in web pages, allowing you to offer the reader seamless interactive mathematical content and illustrations.


Sage is made to interact with other mathematical software, such as R, SciPy, NumPy, Maxima, and many others.
