One of alums, Kevin Yokley thought that we might be interested in this site, a series of problems that combine mathematics and programming.
> On an unrelated note, are you familiar with Project Euler (projecteuler.net)?
> It's a site that offers weekly math challenges. I have found that the beauty
> of the problems is that, generally, the algorithm to solve the problems is
> fairly simple but they have managed to make the numbers large enough that a
> computer is required to implement the solution. It makes for a near perfect
> blend of math and programming. I mention the site because I have recently
> been sucked into it and I know if you have any math students that have an
> interest in programming, they will definitely enjoy the site as well.
