The UTMOST Project has been awarded its second National Science Foundation Division of Undergraduate Education grant through the IUSE program.  This two-year, $700,000 grant will extend previous results (Sage Cell server, SageMathCloud, MathBook XML, and AIM Open Textbook Initiative) and conduct an educational research study into the mixture of open online mathematics textbooks, Sage, Sage cells, and SageMathCloud.

There is specific support for enhancements to the open source Sage Cell and SageMathCloud software, including covering hosting costs for the public Sage Cell server as currently maintained by SageMath, Inc., and support for Andrey Novoseltsev as maintainer.

A new website at the American Institute of Mathematics will debut soon and be a source of further information and details.
