# Past Solutions

I find it hard to navigate through old solutions, so I suggest adding sub-tabs for each of "Number Theory," "Algebra," and "Combinatorics."

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.

Agreed.

In addition, I believe that it would be good if a pdf of the problems and good solutions were compiled for each week.

Also the ability to bookmark problems you wish to revisit - I know this has already been suggested, but it's still relevant and very important!!

Because of the hard navigation system, I usually can't be bothered looking up solutions to problems I made a note to look at. In a sense my laziness is stronger than my interest in these problems but I'd rather if it was easier to look at the solution of problems you can't solve later by maybe clicking on an option for the problem, then when the week is over, I am emailed those solutions.

I think we should be able to access all problems from a single interface. Put them all in a list, newest first.

Don't give us old solutions for free, but do allow us to work old problems for points. This will put later joiners on more even footing with early joiners, plus encourage us to actually work those older problems, rather than just casually browse through the answers.

Don't restrict us to problems that are in our level: Allow us to submit solutions to any problem for points.

But still we need the solutions because after a workout on them ,if we are unable,then the solution will teach us.

And I thought I'm alone in this. See my post Remake the Brilliant Layout

You thought you were alone in this? Your post got 15 up votes. :P

Agreed.

A drop down menu listing all the weeks would be good too.
