Because the open-source and unfastened competitor to pricey software program like Maple(TM), Mathematica(R), Magma, and MATLAB(R), Sage bargains an individual with entry to an internet browser the power to exploit state of the art mathematical software program and show his or her effects for others, usually with lovely photographs. This e-book is a steady creation to Sage for undergraduate scholars towards the top of Calculus II (single-variable critical calculus) or higher-level direction paintings comparable to Multivariate Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, or Math Modeling. The publication assumes no historical past in desktop technology, however the reader who finishes the booklet could have discovered approximately half a primary semester laptop technology I path, together with huge elements of the Python programming language. The viewers of the publication is not just math majors, but additionally physics, engineering, finance, statistics, chemistry, and laptop technological know-how majors.
