After completing these finish the rest of the problems listed, especially the more difficult problems towards the end or so marked. This way you will explore each subject in depth w/o running into areas you haven't learned about yet. Another option is to get a textbook from your library that is essentially the same course but at a higher/deeper level. You're an undergrad now, so grab yourself a graduate text on linear algebra or whatever and go through that. The difference shouldn't be that significant (except maybe for probability) but here and there you will be exposed to deeper material. I assume you've got access to a library with graduate textbooks, if not it's remarkable what can be found online these days.

I like to think of math as one big accumulating body of knowledge, and to conquer it (or at least, feel like you can) you need to tackle it from all angles. This is at least while you are still searching for some specific area that you are really interested in and really want to pursue further. As romsek has said, i would finish all the prescribed homework and assigned tasks for the unit before venturing out into the unguided, and unknown world. That being said, i believe it's very important to do your so called 'mini projects'. Perhaps you don't need to go all the way with them though. Dive into an attempted proof by all means, but if you begin to become stuck, don't let it consume you. As you begin to learn more you will probably end up going back to the things you were once stuck on, and solve them with ease.
