Announcing the Internet-Based Mathematics Competition!

Hello! I am excited to announce my contest, the Internet-Based Mathematics Competition! (INBMC)

The INBMC is completely internet based. It is a 18 short answer problem contest, with 1.5 (may change) hrs timespan. The questions are divided into 6 problem sets. Each problem set carries 7 marks, and contains three problems worth 1, 2 and 4 marks respectively. The maximum possible total is 42.

Everyone will be randomly sorted into one of 4 teams - Algebra, Combinatorics, Geometry and Number Theory upon registration. At the conclusion of each contest, the totals of each team will be calculated and the unofficial winning team will be announced.

The 1st INBMC will be held on August 10, 2015 - 5.30 PM PDT. If it is successful, I will hold more contest.

Head to to register, learn more, and help!

I really need the help of some good problem writers, and I think I will be able to find some of them here.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
