Dear UTAR Students,

I am giving a 3 hours tutorial on Sage on the coming Friday (23-Jan-2015), 10am-1pm at SE203 computer lab.

Sage (http://www.sagemath.org/) is an open-source mathematics software system that is derived from Python programming language. Unlike C / C++programming , Sage enables the users to focus only on the problem solving instead of dealing with the computer resources and settings (e.g. memory architecture, pointers, variable types, brackets etc.).

Basically, the tutorial is meant for the students of UEET2533 Information Theory and Coding to kick-start their assignment. Following the common practice in teaching this subject, the tutorial will be opened to public (UTAR). Students from other courses are welcome to join as the tutorial will be general enough for all the students with little knowledge in C programming (not a must, though).

We will do the programming using the cloud service at http://cloud.sagemath.org and the slides can be found in http://1drv.ms/1ynqb4r . We will spend the first hour to learn programming in the cloud; the second hour on the syntax and control logic and the last hour on solving some simple math problems (e.g. 1+1=2).

No registration is required but do let me know if you are coming as the computer lab can only accommodate limited number of students.

Let’s have fun in programming!
