# Polynomials Sprint: Feedback

As this "Sprint" set is a new concept, I would greatly appreciate any feedback that you had.

Questions to consider:
1) Did you enjoy the experience?
2) Were you around for the entire 2 weeks? Is that time period too long, just right, or too short?
3) Is the difficulty of the problems too hard, just right, or too easy?
4) How much time did you spend? Were there too many things to do, or not enough things to do?
5) What did you like best?
6) What would you like to see improved?
7) Did you like that the discussions were locked for a few days?

Please note that this set is intended for those who are Levels 2-3 in Algebra.

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.

I enjoyed the experience and the time period is just right. The difficulty of the problems is very strange, they resist first attack but after a few days I can find very weird elementary solutions. There were just enough things to do and I liked that discussions were locked for a few days.

There are two "4)"'s in the post above,

Last time someone posted the pdf, it was deleted.

yeah i agree

I feel already that this course shouldn't take 2 weeks, but that's just me. Maybe you can do some sort of online interactive system like the practice map. You can go at your own rate (if it's too slow or too fast). This actually might replace the Practice Map.

Agreed, time period could be shortened to 1 week.

- 5 years, 3 months ago

I sincerely think one week or at maximum 10 days should be enough for each topic. This also means that the remaining days( from 4 to 7 ) can be used for working from another chapter of the book.

Thank you. I'm mainly interested in feedback from Levels 2-3, who may not have seen most of the material presented here.

As you have not seen the entire course, it would be premature to say that 2 weeks is too long.

The practice map provides a much more structured approach to working through these skills. I would like this to be "time sensitive", where it's exciting that others are also exploring similar topics / questions as you are.

Wait, so the assigned stuff isn't all for Polynomial?

- 5 years, 3 months ago

The assigned stuff is for polynomials. However that is not all that we will be covering. There will be other things happening on Friday and next Monday.

Staff - 5 years, 3 months ago

Exactly what other things?

- 5 years, 3 months ago

i donot think so @David Lee check out the first note.

- 5 years, 3 months ago

I LIKE THIS COURSE!!! Let's do another one please

- 5 years, 3 months ago

Ok could you make another course please??? I think I learned a lot from this course or is there not going to be any more? :(
