Current statusContinuationBrainstorming
Target AudienceGeometry Level 1-2Logic Level 2-3
MotivationTo avoid common misconceptions and learn from mistakesTo be determined
Meeting at1/9 Sat 8pm PST, 1/10 Sun 9.30 am IST1/9 Sat 8am PST, 1/9 Sat 9:30 pm IST

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 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:
