This textbook serves admirably as an introduction for newcomers to Sage as well as a reference for those with some experience. It is written in an engaging and informal style and does an excellent job in explaining how Sage works. The book can be used profitably as an auxiliary text in any undergraduate mathematics class with a computational component, and it can be used in the mathematical software courses that are becoming more common, especially for math majors.
- Welcome to Sage!
- Fun Projects Using Sage
- Advanced Plotting Techniques
- Advanced Features of Sage
- Programming in Sage and Python
- Building Interactive Webpages with Sage
The appendices “What to Do When Frustrated” and “Index of Commands by Name and by Section” are especially useful.
