Getting started with Brilliant

Dear new brilliant member brilliant has know some problems. Check all of them here. Why? Because Brilliant staff is removing things from Brilliant because those things have been using less and less during the years.

Brilliant is made in this world for people from all over the world to learn number theory, quantitative finance, algebra, logic, geometry, calculus, classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, basic mathematics, discrete mathematics, computer science and chemistry. To get to them click Practice(up, middle). You will first see the courses from the current topic. When you scroll down you will see different parts of the current topic. If you click one of them you will see problems by the Brilliant staff and by odder users. The problems by the odder users are separated in 1-2 or 1-3 level. Scroll down more you will see many wikis for different things of the current topic.

Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4 and Level 5 means different levels of hardness.

The button with the " + Wiki" this is a wiki for Tic Tac Toe.

There are problems called Problems of the week. To write one you must post your problem on monday before the other members, it really depends from the time zone.

How to use LaTeXLaTeX? Here is a note with all the things about LaTeXLaTeX.

What is a reported problem? A reported problem means a problem that isn't clearly stated or its correct answer is incorrect. Here is an example of a problem the its correct answer is incorrect. How do you know that a problem is reported or someone reported your problem? You can see in the example the there is a text in blue in a yellow rectangle. To know that someone has been reported your problem you get a notification or if one of your reports have been resolved you get a notification again. How to report a problem? If ti's been reported(like the example) you click "View reports"and you will see a screen which asks "What's troubling you about this problem?" and there are three options:

  • This problem is not clearly stated

  • The answer to this problem is incorrect

  • This problem does not follow Brilliant's posting rules and guidelines

if it hasn't been reported yet you click "more" then "Report problem" and then a screen shows up which asks "What's troubling you about this problem?" and there are three options:

  • This problem is not clearly stated

  • The answer to this problem is incorrect

  • This problem does not follow Brilliant's posting rules and guidelines

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.
