Dear Brilliant Community,
Welcome to our new discussion forum. My name is Peter, I work for Brilliant.org, writing and sourcing material for the blog. Check out my profile to find out more about me. As of now I will also be moderating these discussions.
Despite the high quality of our weekly problem sets, the most interesting part of this website is actually the talented and diverse people that use it. We have created this forum so that all of you can better share ideas with each other. There are lots of great individual brains on this site, we believe it would be a shame to not tap into our collective brainpower.
We have created this space for all of you. Therefore we will leave it up to all of you to collectively decide what this forum is, and is not for. We are of the opinion that it would be most natural for you to discuss and share problems and ideas in math and science. That said, we see no reason why you shouldn’t broadly discuss anything that stimulates your intellectual curiosity. Intellectual curiosity can be stimulated in many ways, either frivolously or rigorously.
Please weigh in on this discussion thread to state what sorts of things you would, and would not like to discuss on this forum.
I will only start with these basic ground rules:
- Be respectful of others. This is not a website for mean people.
- Do not post your homework. That would be dishonorable.
- Do not post homework style problems. We want this place to be more exciting than school.
- Don’t give up answers to the current week’s problem sets on Brilliant. That would take the thrill of the challenge out of the problems.
So, help us:
- What are some good rules for our community?
- What should we discuss?
