This looks pretty interesting

Would be cool to have a bunch of MZ entries. I might do one (I know of someone else who may as well).

Great idea. This is mine, which tries to compute PI (3.141592...) by using the "Monte Carlo simulation".

10 L=1:A=0

20 X=RND(1):Y=RND(1)

30 X=X*X:Y=Y*Y:D=X+Y

40 IF D<=1 THEN A=A+1

50 PI=4*A/L

60 PRINT PI

70 L=L+1

80 GOTO 20

Something for users who like mathematics.

We could also write small BASIC programs that show how a programming language e. g. BASIC or a handheld calculator calculates functions like sin, cos, tan, exp, ln, log, n!, sqr and so on. I'd have to see if ten lines are enough.
