Launch of Brilliant Wiki

Do you find yourself having to google concepts or terms in order to solve problems on Brilliant? Are you often dissatisfied by the explanations in the top search results? At Brilliant.org we want to help you!

We have launched a Wiki to enable you to learn from everyone else on Brilliant. Rather than giving up when you haven’t been taught something, you now have easy access to the resources to develop your own solution. We attached a screenshot of the Pattern Recognition - What Comes Next Wiki at the bottom of this note.

We have started it off by adding writeups to the skills in our practice section.You can get to these pages by clicking on the “Book” icon located on the right of the practice skills. Wiki pages are currently limited to our practice sections, but will quickly expand to help everyone learn interesting mathematics and science!

You can contribute to these articles by adding to them, editing them, or adding problems and notes that are relevant to them. The top contributors to each Wiki will be recognized. If you see a page with an empty summary, feel free to start contributing. For more information, read Guidelines for a Good Wiki Editor.

You can contribute new problems and notes to these pages, by selecting “+ Add” directly from the page. Anyone can add their old problems to a wiki by clicking the “edit” button on the problem, and selecting the skill to add them to. If you think your note will make a fine addition to the summary, please copy and paste it in, so that we can recognize you as a Top Editor!

We hope that you will find this a useful resource, as you work on problems on the site. If you have any feedback for improvements, please leave us a comment!

  Easy Math Editor

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.

Hey, that's great! But what happened to "Popular Community Problems"? I think that was a very useful feature.
