Sometimes all one needs to start using Sage in a field is a little help. These “Quickstart” tutorials are designed to get you up and running in one of these fields with a minimum of fuss and muss.
The assumed background in most of these is the first several tutorials in this set of documents. Similarly, keep in mind that these documents are concise; the next step from each of them is really the Sage reference manual.
Finally, the last tutorial is a special one introducing the reader to creation of interactive material in Sage. It’s highly recommended that you study the Programming tutorial before tackling this one.
