Kids' version

I enjoy Brilliant, though I can't solve some -ok, many- of the problems. I am looking for a similar site for my son. He is in 6th grade. I know he can handle some problems here. But I don't want him to get frustrated and discouraged, just because he comes across something he is not expected to solve at that grade.

Any references, or some way to limit the "Brilliant" problems by age?

Thank you.

I'm glad to hear you're enjoying Brilliant and hoping to share it with your son.

Here's a couple of suggestions:

  • In Explorations, Algebra Through Puzzles is likely the most appropriate, and Outside The Box Geometry might be a good fit too (depending on his exposure to basic Geometry). In the next few months, we'll be adding Basic Math, Logic, and Number Theory explorations that all might be interesting to him!
  • In the Topics quizzes, there are "Challenge quizzes" segmented by level. Level 1 problems are the ones are most likely appropriate for a 6th grader.
  • In the Community feed, you can filter by difficulty and topic (i.e., Easy Algebra).

Over time, we hope to improve the difficulty clarity around the site so it will be easier for you (or your son) to figure out the best material to work on.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions!
