Description: Talking about how prime numbers are apparently distributed at 'random' can be visualized by this script. Enter a reasonable target number and the script will show a "|" symbol for the primes in the sequence. Students can then manipulate the window frame and see if they can align the "|" symbols to create a pattern.
