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.

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.

Also looking for a kid version that would start with simple concepts and ramp up towards the harder ones. Thank you.

I agree with the people who say we need a kids version

Yeah, I was looking for a website for my kids when I was in high school, too. There was a lot of studying there, and they weren't doing very well. There was a catastrophic lack of time to help them in particular. I often used a brilliant website and read people's reviews. I also found a useful site https://uk.edubirdie.com/essay-help that helped me write various papers for my children. With this site, I can get instant help writing an essay for my children. Unfortunately, in my school years, there was no such help and I was not able to easily solve problems with my studies.

There could also be english inside the kids' version of Brilliant.

Hello This request for a kids version is 3 years older, wondering if it has been addressed by Brilliant as we are strongly interested and it make totally sense Thanks

I agree that it would be great to provide us with content for kids. To make it attractive to kids, I think it should be colourful. Perhaps that would also be a good idea.

Totally agree with above comments. That would be great if you could provide us with more content for kids.

Yes! Add some layers for our young people because they need to SEE math and all they are focusing on in the elementary and early middle school classrooms are algorithms. Any way you can speak with Jo Boaler about possibilities?

Same here.. i wished there was a brilliant kid's version

I have the same problem as the user above. My kids had discovered your site exploring Youtube and were excited about your videos but once you try it here there are few options for their age. Do you intend to have content for the youngest ones?

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!
