For math students,
I think there are many interesting areas that we had not
developped well in maxima.
Maybe Yong Tableaux is one of sufficient easy and interesting theme.
there is partition function in Set and schur (kostka,too) in Symmetries.
So by using them,your students may implemnt Young diagram,semi standard
Young tableau (SSYT),skew schur functions ,their generic functions.
many applications will be derived from these implementation,because
we can use it with other maxima's packages.
For example,Vicious random walkers have deep relations to
