LIMACON 2013 Coming Soon!

OK, it's getting to be about that time of year again! LIMACON 2013 is March 15th at SUNY Old Westbbury. See the flyer below. I'm speaker number 43! I'll be speaking on how to integrate SAGE into your math classroom. I've done so in my Computer Science class. I'm trying to move away from Graphing Calculators in Math class. I prefer a PC based solution with a Computer Algebra System such as SAGE, Octave or R. SAGE is a lot like Mathematica. Octave is a lot like MATLAB. R is a lot like SPSS. Also, Python is to SAGE as BASIC is to TI83/84. So, we can use numpy and scipy in SAGE to get the functionality of Octave and R! Also, if you have an MPI based Linux cluster, you can use mpi4py!

Generally Speaking,
