SAGE combines various open source mathematics software packages and seamlessly integrates their functionality into a common experience. Its aim is to create a Free Open Source equivalent to Magma, Mathematica, Maple and Matlab.
Sage can be used to study general and advanced, pure and applied mathematics. This includes a huge range of mathematics, including algebra, calculus, elementary to very
advanced number theory, cryptography, numerical computation, commutative algebra, group theory, combinatorics, graph theory, exact linear algebra and much more.
Sage was picked as the Hot Spot of the month in November 2008 by mathforum.org
The demo attempts to give a overview of SAGE with the aim of introducing mathematics students and teachers to appreciate the relevance of this wonderful open source software in contemporary mathematics education and research.
