Weekend Wiki Party 5 - Basic Algebra

If you want to get a sense of community participation in wikis, take a look at wiki collaboration graph.

Well, we're now in week 5 of the wiki weekend series. We've made hundreds of edits to wiki pages during these wiki parties and we've helped thousands of people learn about new math ideas! This week's theme: BASIC ALGEBRA.

Our goal this weekend is to fill out and improve some of our basic algebra pages, which will be a big help to those who are just getting started on Brilliant. To participate, feel free to jump in and write something helpful on one of the following pages. Note that unlike previous wiki parties, these pages aren't empty, but they are short and obviously cursory. They could use better explanations, better examples, etc. Please feel free to contribute however you'd like.

When you have made an edit that you are proud of, please make a comment and let us know, and thanks so much for your contributions.

Hey, I just got level 4 in algebra and I got a message asking me to edit a wiki for square roots. What do you guys think I should do?

The formatting system is unique on Brilliant. I saw different Formatting system on Expii. Can't we build a Standard Formatting?

Yeah I want to do it but should I add more complex examples or something? This is my first time doing something like this so I don't want to screw up lol

@John Taylor Sure, add what you are comfortable with. :)
If you think you can explain the concept better, then add a few lines of explanation.
If you can come up with useful explanations, add those.
If you can improve the existing write up and check for spelling / grammar / punctuation, do that.

@Archit Boobna Great ,you have contributed 14 wikis. Could you tell me the name of the wikis ?

Rajdeep Dhingra - 2 years, 6 months ago

@Rajdeep Dhingra No!, this doesn't mean I have contributed in 14 wikis, this means that I have got 14 collaborators on my wikis. (I guess)

I really feel like contributing some information!

But @Calvin Lin sir, can we use the information from other webpages which are very informative???

In general, you shouldn't use information from other websites. Thanks for asking!

Thank you sir!

The idea of the wiki is for it to be self contained, so try not to use information from other websites.
