* ''John Doe, Jane Deer'': '''Graphing antlers'''. The branching of the antlers of three yearold moose and cariboo form intricate mathematical patterns. We will produce an applet that illustrates the growth of these structures. * ''Mclean Edwards, Scott Zhou'': "BFGS Iterates". Plotting iterates, in an interactive manner, of the celebrated BFGS method applied to nonconvex and convex functions. Comparison of sage, jyscript/piscript, and our own pythonbased solutions. * ''Jakub Marecek'': '''Visualising the Workings of a Modern Integer Programming Solver'''. A very limited integer programming solver for instances with 3 variables, but complete with several primal (and possibly branching) heuristics in use today, and nice plots. '''SVG and PDF Output for JyScript'''. A quick hack using Apache Batik.

Tools with which to produce sketches of a kind often drawn on blackboards to illustrate algebraic structures. * ''Michael Lamoureux'': '''EasyBalls'''. A 2D animation of colliding balls, maybe with gravity, maybe with E&M if I can get the 3D in there. * ''Ryan Hoban'': '''Hyperbolic Geometry'''.
