Indeed. More wiki = more awesome.

Just a quick question: Is the Calculus development section coming up? Cause I'm chipping in for Multivariable Calculus - the course I'm taking right now.

Just curious.

You can "Add Wiki" if you want to make a Wiki page for a skill that is not listed yet. If the page is suitable, we will add it to the current map.

The Calculus section is almost fully developed for a typical high school syllabus. Over time, I will get around to adding extensions to it. Currently, I am fleshing out the Geometry and Combinatorics sections, which are much further behind.

Where can I put into the fact that "A Quadratic Equation cannot have more than 2 roots." And What Exactly does one need in Quadratics-Factoring-Medium. I am just thinking for writing up that.also..many, but the matter is I am using some proofs to prove many others so should I first make sure that those proofs exist and then go forward in writing up the the proof that I want to add to Wiki.

The first fact can be placed in Quadratic Equations - Factoring.

You can also create a new skill of "Fundamental Theorem of Algebra" and place it there, and add more details about the general \( n\) degree polynomial.

Proofs of statements are certainly welcome, and will help provide more context to those who are interested. If you do not see a suitable place to add the proof, please use the "Add Wiki" page. Thanks!
