Compute the sum of the primes below n, where n=30,100,1000, and two million. For the last few, you may want to learn about a "list" from a good Python tutorial, such as this one, this one, or another one from this list.

Use Sage to calculate the determinant of the diagonal matrix of ranks
one through ten with all ones on the diagonal. (You know the answer, but get Sage to do it for you!)

Look up the list of programs which Sage uses internally or has interfaces to. Have you used any of them?
