**Wiki collaboration**

This week, we will be improving:

Wiki page | Common Misconceptions |

Hosted by | Zandra |

Supported by | Calvin |

Current status | Continuation |

Target Audience | Level 1-3, All(?) |

Motivation | To avoid common misconceptions and learn from mistakes |

Meeting at | 12/4 Fri 6pm Pacific, 12/5 Sat 7.30 am India |

Chatroom | #Mathematics |

Each meeting will be conducted over Slack chat and will last for approximately 60-90 minutes. We will achieve the following:

- (5 mins) Figure out the target audience, and their motivation for reading the page
- (20 mins) (Quick review of examples) Discuss what we love / don't love
- (15 mins) Ensure we have a complete list of examples
- (15 mins) Discuss how to organize various sections of the page
- (10 mins) Settle on the final structure of the page
- (5 mins) Assign out sections to write over the week

If you have any questions, please comment below!

**Wiki mentoring**

In addition, we will also be hosting 1-1 wiki mentoring sessions, for those wanting to craft excellent wiki pages. Over the course of a week, you will learn how to structure the page, present information in a clear and concise manner, and also select relevant examples that highlight the value of the concept.

If you are interested, send me a message on Slack, and state the wiki page that you would like to work on.

If you don't have a preference, here are some high traffic wiki pages that could be greatly improved:

TopNewestIs order theory considering order of operations? I would be very interested in doing something with derivations of arithmetic and algebraic derivations for solving and simplifying. I'll repost this on slack chat. This sounds terrific, interesting, thought provoking and (some might say most importantly) productive!

Looking forward to it!

Derivations of unique formulas is a great wiki page to work with. A clear explanation of those ideas, along with helpful guidelines, will be extremely valuable to a problem solver.

Order Theory refers to investigating how a (partially) ordered set is ordered, by making (mostly) binary relation observations. As a simple example, if we are given \( A < B < C \) and \( A < D < E \), can we tell what the smallest number is? How about the largest number?

Sir, I contributed to Telescoping Series. Also, can you please tell me how to log in to Slack ? I tried several times but could'nt go in.

Anish, that was a good writeup, but it's meant for Telescoping Series - Sum, as opposed to products. Could you edit it accordingly?

We can discuss how to improve this page further, once you figured out Slack. Let me know if that remains an issue.
