As a teacher I am looking for more ways to bring Brilliant.org into the classroom. I would like as many ideas as possible for bringing brilliant into the classroom.

I have already introduced the idea of the Apprentice, Journeyman, Adept, Magnus, and Brilliant solution writer into my classroom, as well as posting challenging problems on the blackboard to challenge students (along with crediting the user responsible for posting it). I would like a way to group students to solve problems and try to earn points as a group.

I'm all ears.

TopNewestWow, that really excites me that you've been challenging students with these problems, and also uploading them to the Solution Writing standards that I laid out.

Here are some suggestions for activities that you could do. I don't know the standard / maturity that you're teaching, so I'm offering a spectrum of ideas. I can work with you further if you're interested:

Hi, Calvin. Thank you for these great ideas.

Other than clicking in and out of Following/Followers, are there other ways that a teacher can push and monitor student progress on Brilliant.org? I purchased an annual subscription since the math content looks great, but I don't see any coaching features like quiz assignments / data analytics.

You could have Socratic Seminars in your math class. Give out a challenging math problem and see how the class as a whole works together to try and solve that problem. You can repeat this for a while so they can get the hang of it. Then you can ask the students to create their own challenging math problems and watch how other students solve said problem. You don't necessarily have to use Brilliant.org in your class. Just use some of the ideas from Brilliant.org in your math class.
