I'd love to hear from lots of people how they first found out about Brilliant. I'm a math teacher and think Brilliant is great. I heard about it from another teacher on Twitter. How about you?

It's great to see educators on our site. Currently 60% of our users find us by word of mouth (or keyboard) and 40% through online ads targeting math enthusiasts. Word of mouth is always the best way to build a cool online community. If any of you have friends who would enjoy our problem sets, be sure to let them know about us.

Well on a fine afternoon when I was bored to hell,I typed mathematics,then sprang up the ad of Fall Maths Challenge..I unfortunately joined it in the 5th week..
Waiting for the next challenge.

If I remember correctly, I was led to Brilliant by an ad on a webpage about online courses. I'm glad that my browsing of the Internet brought me to this wonderful site.

I was bored and typed "www.mathematics.com" or something like that (I don't remember very well) and the first link was to this website. That is something I rarely do, but I feel lucky to find it : )
