https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8337/webpages-created-by-sage/?answer=12669#post-id-12669Do you mean something similar to [this example of a taylor polynomial or live Sage cell](http://utmost.aimath.org/#august-2011), or something like [these two examples](http://buzzard.ups.edu/) on Rob Beezer's page? Both of these use the "single-cell" server at [http://sagemath.org:5467/](http://sagemath.org:5467/). Here are [instructions](https://github.com/jasongrout/simple-python-db-compute/blob/master/doc/embedding.rst) for embedding it into any webpage.
Of course, for more serious and longer investigations, creating a [Sage notebook](http://sagenb.org) account is easy as well.Tue, 20 Sep 2011 13:48:32 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8337/webpages-created-by-sage/?answer=12669#post-id-12669Comment by r.gaia.cs for <p>Do you mean something similar to <a href="http://utmost.aimath.org/#august-2011">this example of a taylor polynomial or live Sage cell</a>, or something like <a href="http://buzzard.ups.edu/">these two examples</a> on Rob Beezer's page?

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8337/webpages-created-by-sage/?answer=12668#post-id-12668It's not quite clear what you mean by "mathematical investigations", but I think that this is basically what hundreds (more?) of us use the Sage notebook for on a daily basis.
You can go to [the main Sage notebook server](http://sagenb.org/) at the University of Washington and try it out (there are a number of others). I especially recommend going to the [published worksheet link](http://sagenb.org/) and using the search box for various topics you may find useful.
The only catch is that anyone using the Sage notebook (currently) has to log in and actually view a page. We will probably soon have the potential for "live" interactive things that do not require login, or even download of a plugin (so, easier to use than Mma Demonstrations), but that is still working through the review process, I believe.
If this is not quite what you were asking, please just update your question. I have personally used Sage in the classroom to do exactly this - both live calculations and investigations - for over four years, and am very satisfied with the results. There are other educators who discuss these kinds of meta-issues at the [Google group for education and Sage](http://groups.google.com/group/sage-edu), which you may wish to join and participate in; the [group for support](http://groups.google.com/group/sage-support) can handle most technical questions.
Good luck!Tue, 20 Sep 2011 13:14:16 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8337/webpages-created-by-sage/?answer=12668#post-id-12668
