UChicago Department of Mathematics is where you can currently find me.

Projective Set is a game played with a deck of 63 cards. Seven cards are placed on the table. Your goal is to find, from amongst those seven cards, a set of those cards such that each color of dot appears on an even number of cards in your set. I made this web app. When you find a set, drag it toward the side of the screen.

Pascal Colors is a little thing I made that lets you explore patterns in Pascal's triangle.
