# Intro to Sage Math Workshop by Grant Ellis (R4)

Grant Ellis will be giving an introduction to SAGE math, check him out at R4 11am both days !

Sage is built out of nearly 100 open-source packages and features a unified interface. Sage can be used to study elementary and advanced, pure and applied mathematics. This includes basic algebra, calculus, elementary to very advanced number theory, cryptography, numerical computation, commutative algebra, group theory, combinatorics, graph theory, exact linear algebra and more.** **

Sage is free and uses the mainstream programming language Python. Learning Sage will make you proficient in this popular and well supported free programming language, which you can also use for other projects. Moreover, Sage features the Cython compiler, which allows one to write fast code and to combine Python with existing libraries.
