Last month's Problem Writing Party was a huge success! So many of you made a contribution one way or another that I couldn't possibly list everyone here. Because of your submissions, we were able to launch not just two new quizzes, but five new quizzes. Here are the quizzes that you all helped create:
We want to showcase the hard work these members of the community put in over the last week, so Brilliant will featuring these quizzes in the community Featured feed, on Facebook, and in our email campaigns over the next week. With that said, let's kick off the 2nd Problem Writing Party!
How it Works
The party starts right now (February 1st, 2016) and will last for the next two weeks. Throughout the two weeks, we will be focusing on writing awesome problems for the topics listed below. To participate, submit as many problems as you want to these listed topics. At the end of the party, Brilliant staff will be picking the best 5-10 problems for each topic. These problems will then be immortalized and formed into a challenge quiz. If we pick your problem, then you can brag to your friends because it will be displayed on Brilliant forever!
Use this note to
Ask questions about the party or brainstorming ideas from Brilliant staff.
Share links to great relevant problems.
Bounce your ideas off each other to help formulate the best problem you can.
To be selected, problems you submit should be fun and challenging to a student in the levels listed for the given topic.
