  Easy Math Editor

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.

The contest will last from 20th July to 26th July and results will come on 1st August, 2 days will be Easy, 2 days will be Medium, 2 days Hard and the last day IMPOSSIBLE(Not Really). Leaderboard is still limited to 50 participants, and 2 spots are open for judges who want to help me, it would be great if a moderator could join, but members are also allowed.

Difficulty depends on the stage, so Easy stage has easy questions and so on. Most questions will be math but sometimes a few logic might slip through. Hope your doubt has been cleared :)

I mean will it include all branches of mathematics including algebra, probability, geometry, statistics, calculus and other branches.

Just a quick suggestion: Eventually the time category should be removed due to time zones and vacation. E.g. in Europe your comment happened at 5 a.m. .

Lorenz W. - 2 months, 1 week ago

Log in to reply

@Percy Jackson, I live in a different time zone so a quick suggestion = can you tell us the time in which time zone that the contest starts?

P.S. can you get rid of the time because everyone lives in a different time zone?

For those who don't know, Latex is a kind of formatting that people use to make solutions look more pleasing. You can see my Latex guide, but its horrible so i suggest Daniel Liu's Latex Guide

You can use Latex to make your solution more pleasing, so it isn't compulsory to use everything as latex, just enough to make it the most pleasing and beautiful yet understandable.

Actually, my thought behind it was, I will be creating the questions, so I'll know their answers, judging solutions should be up to someone who actually finds it helpful, because he/she doesn't know the answer. Downvotes don't count, and you are all allowed to give a note in your solutions, asking for upvotes if someone found it helpful, but I would suggest focusing on your solutions, the upvotes will automatically come.

You are thinking ideal. Consider real. :) Anyway, it's your contest, so your rules.

@Aryan Sanghi Ideal thought is always of opposite of real one

Sincere congratulations on your initiative. I expect greater things will follow.

A note about my preferences: de-emphasize or even eliminate an arbitrary speed consideration. Emphasize and intentionally create space/time for creative and well-constructed work. As designed, these type of events pander to teenage male norms, which tend to be dysfunctional, at this time, unfortunately.

LaTeX is simply a text formatting app. Why are there considerations for using this app? Well constructed responses should be placed on equal footing.

Up votes is so ... Facebook. Although this is easy to implement, without additional constraints, this does not promote high quality, well constructed responses. Considering alliances is a distraction and not a support.

Single judge? I smell drama ...

I suppose if I felt strongly about these things then I should create my own contest. This is your contest, so Best Wishes! Is there money involved after I win? I would appreciate a Happy Meal, or even a donut.

Stay safe.

The prize is awesome, its the satisfaction of winning a contest, knowing that you helped a lot of people while you were at it.

You can trust me to choose the best contestant and I am not into it for the drama.

I would suggest use of LaTeX as it makes your solution more pleasing and interesting to go through, I would rather read a LaTeX solution than a normal one.

Time is assigned as I have to evaluate the solutions and I have to keep more focus on my studies. Also, similiar solutions appear after some time and this repetition causes few of the solutions to get ignored.

I hope you understand!

I still would prefer a donut ...

Will the contestants be able to submit images or animations?

David Hairston - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

@David Hairston Yes, Of course images and animations are allowed, and i can give you a donut right now -

@Percy Jackson So if you allow images then you could also consider answers formatted without using LaTeX.

I'm intrigued and encouraged. How do you insert images in comments?

David Hairston - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

Log in to reply

@David Hairston What i do is, I go to Daily challenges, look for an answer that i got right(very hard as most are wrong), click that picture icon in the solutions, select the pic from files, and then copy/paste. Simple!!

Percy Jackson - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

Log in to reply

@Percy Jackson What I do is create a note, and smash the upload image button. Then I copy the link/text

It will be more easier @Percy Jackson @David Hairston

@Frisk Dreemurr it would be much easier to just type ! [ ] ( link ) and put the link of your image in place of link.(No spaces there, though)

got donut?

David Hairston - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

@David Hairston link means this - download the pic, then drag it from whatever file, into your browser search bar, click enter and then a link will appear in the search bar, that's the link you want

@Percy Jackson I couldn't think of anything else out of all names I could have picked , I thought of BlueWolf Don't know why.....well whatever 😑 I also asked'Count me in' of what she thought of the name. She said it was fine.😐

Emma Watson - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

@Percy Jackson I think she chose Bluewolf because she is Harry potter's fan. Remember Warewolf, Remus Lupin.
