State Level Workshop on Mathematical Softwares

Date: 
Fri, 14th Dec 2018 to Sat, 15th Dec 2018
Venue: 

Department of Mathematics, MIT ACS College,
Alandi, Pune.

Two day State Level Workshop on Mathematical Softwares:

Geogebra, SageMath and Scilab.


The Workshop is held under Regional Programmes of The Mathematics Consortium.

  • Introduction of Workshop:

    • This workshop is especially focused on Mathematical Softwares: SageMath (System for Algebra and Geometry Experimentation), GeoGebra and Scilab for College/School teachers and students. These software are computer algebra systems (CAS) with features covering many aspects of mathematics and statistics.
  •  SageMath:

  • GeoGebra:

    • GeoGebra is an interactive geometry, algebra, statistics and calculus application, intended for learning and teaching mathematics and science from primary school to university level. GeoGebra is available on multiple platforms with its desktop applications for Windows, macOS and Linux, with its tablet apps for Android, iPad and windows, and with its web application based on HTML5 technology.
  • Scilab:

    • Scilab is a free and open source, cross platform numerical computational package and a high level, numerically oriented programming language. It can be used for signal processing, statistical analysis, image enhancement, fluid dynamics simulations, numerical optimization, and modeling, simulation of explicit and implicit dynamical systems and symbolic manipulations.
  • Aim:

    • The aim of this workshop is to provide training in GeoGebra, SageMath and Scilab softwares.
  • Objectives:

  1. To give fundamental knowledge Mathematical Softwares: GeoGebra, SageMath and Scilab.
  2. To promote and encourage faculties and students to use Mathematical softwares.
  3. To give application based knowledge of different mathematical softwares.
  4. To develop methodology for teaching mathematics with mathematical softwares.
  5. To develop strategies to implement teaching methodologies.
  6. To produce innovative teaching modules using mathematical softwares.
  • Target audience/participants:
