StackExchange: "Math Challenges" Proposal

Hey everyone,

Two months ago, I started a proposal on StackExchange on Mathematical Challenges for "enthusiasts wanting to create and share their own mathematical challenges at all levels, including recreational mathematics."

The link is here:

The example questions are questions that would be typical on the site. Please note that for the purposes of an example question, it doesn't have to be original, but all questions posted when the site is in beta (see below) must be original.

Currently, it is in the Definition phase. If there are 60 followers and 40 questions with a score of at least 10, then it will move on to the Commitment phase. After this it will go to beta (where users can actually use the site!)

As of now, it has 80 followers and only 14 questions with a score of at least 10.

      >>>    If you are interested, I'd be really grateful if you could upvote 5 example questions that haven't reached a score of 10 yet, and if you can, propose more example questions!

To propose a question, you need at least 50 reputation, so the best way to get this is to

  1. follow the proposal (click Follow) by entering your email - it will not be displayed to anyone else

  2. you will be directed to a new page and press "Confirm and Create Account"

  3. click on your profile picture on the top bar of the page

  4. click on 'Send email verification' and verify your email to get 50 rep

  5. finally, go back to the link above and scroll to the bottom. You will see a box where you can enter your example questions!

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask them here, or discuss on the Area 51 Meta site:

Thank you!

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.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
