Sage is open-source software for advanced mathematics. There are several ways to use it, here are two of the easiest.

- CoCalc
- Sage Cell Server (one-off computations)

Main website for Sage: Sage Website

- MIT Beamer Tutorial [TeX Source!]
- Beamer User Guide [Documentation Directory (w/ theme examples)]
- Technically Speaking Videos
- Open Licenses Explained

These are simply suggestions. Some I know well, some I know little about. Some are excellent choices, some will be harder than others. And you *are not* limited to just these topics. Many of these have been done by UPS students before (see Math 420 Spring 2014), so you need to be sure your approach is substantially different.
