i'm apologize if i made a mistake from what i'm said. I've read a lot of good things about brilliant as long brilliant exist, because I am concerned about the way of brilliant staff with very good their idea, discussing of good literature about math. now i am writing to bring to your attention.
Brilliant had make me disappointed two times. Why ?
The 2013 Brilliant.org Summer Camp has been Cancelled. But, i don't want to discuss it anymore
As we know that, now there is hunger games, which is good by programmer. But, what about non programmer ? As we know that, the first purpose of brilliant is to development in math course (*cause i have been user since August 2012). Why don't brilliant make a mathematics competition after \( 8 \) month the first competition had been finished instead of hunger games, which is new course in brilliant ? I don't say that hunger games isn't good, but from the reason Summer Camp has been Cancelled, i see that brilliant improving the site for thousands of avid problem solvers rather than focusing on the \( 40 \) students selected for the summer camp. So, why don't brilliant focusing on math problem solver instead of CS participant ? I believe that, if brilliant focusing on math problem solver, this site will growth fast.
So, we are as math problem solver (why i say we ? Cause, my friend in indonesia, has the same opinion like me) really want the fall math challenge again. And about the prize, Brilliant might think held another competition will spend a lot of money, but I doubt it. If the prizes were the main problem, then the prizes provided simply not need to be luxurious, it can be something affordable such as lanyard, t-shirt, etc. I think this kind of prize totally impressed us, moreover it would make ourselves proud because it can be proof of our participation in such a brilliant competition. In conclusion, the competition will highly motivated brilliant user in math. As long as what I remember, the main purpose of brilliant existence was encouraged student to learn math, since most of brilliant users are absolutely passionate in math. Therefore, held a competition surely completed its goal.
