One of those is a simple calculator. Perhaps you could extend that to make it an arbitrary precision calculator and incorporate some of the functions like greatest common denominator, least common multiple, Euler phi function, etc, the sort of functions that people experimenting with numbers and number theory might really like to have in a calculator. And you could make it an applet so it would download automatically and run using your computer's resources.

If you did a good job of coding that so it would be easy for others to understand and add more functions then this might be a resource that people who are interested in that sort of calculation would really value.

You can download code from the author's website, but since you are learning I would suggest that you perhaps not just use his code, but learn how to do it yourself.

The newest editions of the book are as expensive as any textbook, but the old edition I have can now be purchased for $4 delivered!

Once you get it working you might ask people over in the math/number theory area if people would try it out and suggest more functions to put into it.
