UW 2006 CSUMS NSF Proposal

CSUMS: SAGE - Software for Algebra and Geometry Experimentation

Computational Science Training for Undergraduates in the Mathematical Sciences (CSUMS)

William Stein

The proposed project is for a group of 40 undergraduate students (8 each academic year for 5 years) at the University of Washington (UW) to do research and development on high quality mathematics software for algebra, geometry, number theory, cryptography, numerical analysis, statistics, and other areas. By joining the SAGE project, the PI hopes that participants will become involved in mathematical research, gain extensive knowledge about mathematical software, make long-term connections with a vibrant research and development community, and contribute tools that will be used by teachers and expert researchers in numerous fields. They will also learn teaching and writing skills, and really understand some part of mathematics deeply, which will prepare them to apply computational mathematics in graduate school and industry.
