# Thanks Brilliant!

It was January, 2015. I was looking for a site that would provide me some help for working out a mechanics problem which I wasn't able to solve from three days...

I got brilliant. I liked it from the bottom of my heart, only because there was just math and physics, nothing else. I worked out some simple problems. I had posted a note, asking for help in mathematics.

I had posted a lot of notes foolishly, just asking the same question: How do I improve at math? Are there any books, shortcuts, tricks.. that would improve my problem solving skills?

And today, I have realized this fact:

I have got enough of mathematical maturity. I know that even that euclidean geometry problems can be done with calculus. I just don't go on solving every problem for the sake of gaining points, but to learn something new from it.

Thank you brilliant, thank you. You have paved my way, the way that leads to ultimate success, which is the immense joy of doing mathematics!

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.
