Summer salalies will be for the three investigators in the summer of 2001. The investigators will: develop assignments, coordinate use of the assignments within the Math Department, hold introductory demonstration sessions about the software around campus, and work with Computer Services on license and installation of the software. A PACE position has already been approved for the coming year for the purpose of assistance in the development and posting of assignments.

License arrangements are on a `concurrent user' basis, that is,
there is a limit to the number of computers using the software
at any given moment.
The funds for hardware would be used
for a small PC and associated software to keep track of
concurrent users of **MatLab**. Computer Services will
maintain this computer.

Funds for software will be spent on a campus-wide license
for **MatLab**. Although
the exact details of the license
will be worked out by a university committee, the requested
amount is intended to cover a perpetual license for 500
concurrent users at a cost of $21 per user (license for **
MatLab** and **Symbolic Math** toolbox). The Department
of Mathematics will contribute up to $600 per year toward
the estimated cost of $2,000 per year (if a perpetual license
is chosen) for maintanance of the license.
