Wiki Collaboration Party - Circumcircles and Related Rates

Thanks for your participation in the collaborative process. It has began to be more interactive as people understand how to engage with each other.

I am proud to announce that the Symmetry page has been written up. Many thanks to Sandeep, Andrei, Pranshu for their hard work. It now contains numerous great visuals of symmetry that you should share with your friends! You can see my favorite gif above.

We are still in the process of working on Propositional Logic Word Problems and Composite Figures, so please help out in any way that you can!

This week, we will be improving:

Wiki pageTriangles - CircumcenterRelated Rates of Change

Current statusBrainstormingBrainstorming
Target AudienceLevel 3-4 Geometry, proof basedLevel 2-3 Calculus
MotivationTo be decidedTo be decided
Meeting at9/4 8am PDT, 830pm IST9/5 8am PDT, 830pm IST

For circumcenter of triangle, we intend to do a brief quick introduction to it, and move to cover more proof-based ideas like "show that the perpendicular bisectors of the edges intersect at the circumcenter" and "Show that the circumcenter of this triangle lies on line PQ" etc.

For related rates, we already have a few examples listed out, so we are looking to build out a narrative that would explain to someone why they should learn about related rates and how that can helpful to their understanding. It would be great for them to understand why and how the speed of an object would change over time (like in the try it yourself problem).

Each meeting will be conducted over Slack chat and will last for approximately 60-90 minutes. Before the meeting, please spend 15-30 minutes looking over the examples so that you are familiar with it during the discussion.

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!

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.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

You could still help chip in and write up various sections on the page :) We've laid out the structure, so that you can understand how each of the pieces will fit in.

If you would like further help, message me or Xuming.
