(2) We are using a Computer Algebra System called SAGE instead of the TI-83. We used to call the TI-83 "Ziggie." Hence the title of this post: Ziggie must die! The grand experiment this year is to see how well students learn the Math while learning to code in python at the same time! Well, it's not such a grand experiment as we've been using SAGECELL for several years now. What's different is that we won't be using the TI-83 this year as we just don't need it anymore!
(3) We will be learning a lot of python in class. You can learn some python code on your own too with this online, interactive textbook!
(4) Here's a taste of our first day:
Well, that's all folks!
