SAGE: Calculus Research Lab (CRL)?
I may not have this lab after all! My new course proposal for CRL, based on Sage and Calculus texts that use Sage as listed onhttp://www.sagemath.org, was approved and funded. However, CRL was approved too late last year to fit into the students' schedules.
So, we were going to meet every day after school for half a period instead of every other day during school (a la science labs). The problem is that no one told the students and now this isn't going to fly either as my union says teaching after hours is against the contract!
We are now trying for a Spring Semester class instead...
