Student projects designed as supplements to an undergraduate cosmology course are available on the LAMBDA website (Legacy Archive for Microwave Background Data Analysis).  One project shows students how to accurately compute ages and distances numerically in an expanding LCDM universe.  Another project has students use the CAMB simulation (Code for Anisotropies in the Microwave Background) to explore CMB maps and power spectra to understand how the densities of various components of the universe are measured.
