Project Euler

Various authors, Website, Jan 07, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a neat project in which students are posed increasingly challenging math programming problems. For example (from the first page), "Find the largest palindrome made from the product of two 3-digit numbers." Anyone can solve the problems and "for many the experience is inductive chain learning... by solving one problem it will expose you to a new concept that allows you to undertake a previously inaccessible problem." Exploration on the internet is encouraged, as "there could be hidden treasures of mathematics to be discovered beneath the surface of many of these problems." Via Alfred Thompson.
