# Wiki Collaboration Parties - Common misconceptions about $\infty$, Mental Math Tricks

This week, we will be improving:

 Wiki page Common misconceptions about infinity Mental math tricks Hosted by Zandra Sandeep Supported by Calvin Michael Fuller Current status Brainstorming Brainstorming Target Audience Calculus Level 1-2 Algebra Level 2-3 Motivation To avoid such mistakes To learn these tricks Meeting at 1/23 8:00 am PST, 9:30pm IST 1/24 8:00 am PST, 9:30pm IST Chatroom #Mathematics #Mathematics

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

1. (5 mins) Figure out the target audience, and their motivation for reading the page
2. (20 mins) (Quick review of examples) Discuss what we love / don't love
3. (15 mins) Ensure we have a complete list of examples
4. (15 mins) Discuss how to organize various sections of the page
5. (10 mins) Settle on the final structure of the page
6. (5 mins) Assign out sections to write over the week

If you have any questions, please comment below!

In addition, we will also be hosting 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.

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.
