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.

TopNewestWhatever colors they use, I'd like to see the level number inside the colored square/bar.

Exactly! It is difficult to know the levels of a person by just hovering over his name and viewing the colors!

Yeah. Now the colours don't match the shirt and the lanyards...

A lot of people agree...

Hey Everybody,

We made the tones of the colors just a bit brighter a few days ago than they were at the posting of this thread.

What do you guy's think? Did they improve in the right direction or did we make it worse?

Log in to reply

They did improve from the previous ones, but the one's which were present before the change were potentially the best ones!

I like the new colors but yes there is difficulty in deciding one's levels. I am also one of them who wanna switch back.

Log in to reply

I like the new colours! I have no problems seeing the differences, so no complaints from me :)
