Problem Writing Party 10 had a ton of discussion, and lots of people were contributing various problems to it. You may have noticed that we started adding some new chapters like Operator Search, Syllogistic Logic, Composite Figures and Convergence of Sequences, indicating that we're expanding the availability of material on Brilliant. Unfortunately, this introduced confusion, as it wasn't immediately clear what was / was not allowed into the chapter. As such, we will only be adding existing chapters to the PWP, so that everyone can easily reference the relevant material.
Once again, I'm working on creating the quizzes, and will update the following list ASAP. The new chapters will take a bit more time for us to create, and I am hoping for them to be released at the end of the week.
Some of you would also have received B-notifications that your problems were added to the quizzes over the course of the previous week. Keep it up! We value your submissions, and would love to feature more of them.
Here are the quizzes that the Brilliant community helped create:
New Brilliant Challenge Quizzes
Properties of Arithmetic: Level 1, Level 2
Operator Search: Level 2, Level 3, Level 4
Percentages: Level 1, Level 2
Composite Figures: Level 2, Level 3, Level 4

Let's kick off our 10th Problem Writing Party!
The party starts right now (July 12th, 2016) and will last for the next two weeks. We will be focusing on writing awesome problems for the topics listed in quizzes that need your help on the publish page.
We will be picking the best few problems for each topic and they will be immortalized and formed into a challenge quiz.
Do participate in attaining a sense of accomplishment and a growth in problem writing skills!
The topics are:
|Absolute value||is the distance from from 0 to on the number line. How do we interpret ?||Level 2, 3|
|Linear Inequalities||We know that , but is it also true that ?||Level 1, 2, 3|
|Radical Expressions||Is it true that ?||Level 1, 2, 3|
|Uniform Circular Motion||Uniform circular motion describes objects that move along a curve of a constant radius at constant speed.||Level 1, 2, 3|
|Variance||I have two distributions. Which distributions is more sparse than the other?||Level 2, 3|
|Discrete Random Variables||Would you rather flip 10 fair coins or 10 biased coins in hopes of getting 5 heads and 5 tails?||Level 2, 3, 4|
|Heaps||Heaps are data structures which are maintained in a way so that finding the minimum or the maximum is always efficient.||Level 1, 2|
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.
If you're posting your problems, please keep it to one rooted comment (and I will be merging such comments from the same person). This helps us keep the page more orderly.
