Help Make Brilliant Even Better!

You may have noticed that we've launched wiki pages in our practice section. We've got over 100 pages already up and running but we need your help to make these pages a resource that will make an even better place to improve at math, science, and problem solving.

If you'd like to try your hand at explaining a challenging/interesting concept to tens of thousands of other people all around the world, read on!

Our wiki pages are meant to help people who have forgotten (or have never learned) about a particular skill or technique. Our best pages will have:

  • a brief and understandable summary of the idea/technique
  • additional explanation, if it would be helpful or provide added depth
  • some worked examples so readers can see the idea in action

However, any contributions you can make are welcome, as we want to work as a community to improve this resource over time. Here are a couple of examples of some more-developed pages:

So, if you'd like to help, here are some pages that could use your contributions:

Created (but feel free to edit/improve):

Of course, feel free to look around and contribute anywhere else you'd like as well!

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.
