# Brilliant Squared!!

I just upgraded to Brilliant squared and it is seriously awesome!! However there are a few things that can be improved.

1.The scratchpad: The scratchpad is pretty good but we can only type in here and can't draw a diagram or so. So, could you please include a Paint like panel next to the existing scratchpad?

2.The Practice problems: Most often, I noticed that there is a repetition of problems. For example, this skill has the same answer to every problem because they are SO similar!

3.I had typed the same note and I went on to read the Rules and guidelines. But when I returned, all that I had typed in had disappeared. Thus I had to type it all over again... Please make the necessary changes if possible.

Thank you :)

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.

@Arron Kau @Peter Taylor Can there be a feature where you can try out the first few skills in a set for free and after, you would need a $\text{Brilliant}^2$ account? That way, it can get users a limited edition of the skills and it would leave them at a cliffhanger. :)

Thanks!

Hiya Kevin, we are seriously considering ideas along those lines and in the future we may decide to implement the cliff-hanger.

Shreya, thanks for the encouraging feedback. The practice section does have some repetition, but the skill you saw in Combinatorics with the same problem over and over again was a bug. We have fixed it, give it a try!

Thank you so much!!

Hi Shreya,

Thanks for the feedback! We will take all of these into account as we strive to make both Brilliant and $Brilliant^2$ better.

Out of curiosity, which aspects of $Brilliant^2$ do you find most useful so far?

Staff - 5 years, 4 months ago

I felt the save sets feature and the new topics introduced in Practice section were very useful. :)

What is the save sets feature? Can you please tell me more about it ?

- 5 years, 4 months ago

Well, if you feel that you need a set probably to view later, you can save the set using a feature in Brilliant Squared known as the save sets feature.

Thanks! I found out what it is and am using it now..

- 5 years, 4 months ago

Oh.. so you upgraded to Brilliant Squared .. :)

- 5 years, 4 months ago

I had upgraded much earlier, but did not know of the save sets feature.

Hey there, you think it's worth the money? :-)
