- Project Euler. You can earn extra-credit
for completing problems from Project Euler. These problems are intended to
require some mathematical insight as well as some programming. If you have
no prior programming experience and are interested in attempting this, you
might get started with Python. A free Python
course is available from the University of Waterloo here.
