Sketchpad function?

Could Brilliant employ an onscreen sketchpad that can draw on the problem (not permanently) to help show work and stuff like that? I was just working on a couple of geometry problems, and I realized that an immensely powerful tool would be a sketchpad widget/function thing! One of the best ways to solve geometry problems, and any type of problems for that matter, is to mark up the diagram and the problem. Another creative idea would be a built in Geometer's Sketchpad for Brilliant for problem-writers. It would be yet another factor to set Brilliant apart from all other online math websites. Tell me what you guys think! :D

I endorse this.

Kinda of like the sketchpad that can be found on Khan Academy, right? Daniel Liu · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Daniel Liu Exactly like that! Especially the line-striaghtening feature! :D Finn Hulse · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Daniel Liu yaa.... It could also be there on the problem creating part so that we need not insert paint files.... saves a lot of time- specially the time for searching the paper and pen! Shreya R · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Shreya R I myself use a type of math typesetting called Asymptote Vector Graphics Language. However, it is like learning a whole new CS language, so do it only if you're up to it! Daniel Liu · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Daniel Liu oh..okk. I'll check it out. Shreya R · 3 years, 1 month ago

I think a standardized math sketchpad would a great thing for Brilliant to have. Some of the hardest geometry problems I've seen here were actually drawn on ruled paper with a pencil and a picture of it uploaded. I end up having to do a lot of squinting. Michael Mendrin · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Michael Mendrin Yeah, but I'm talking about for problem-solvers, not just writers. Of course, that would be another aspect/advantage. :D Finn Hulse · 3 years, 1 month ago
