Wiki collaboration party - Hosted by the community

Thanks for your participation in the collaborative process last week. Xuming had a lot of fun with organizing one, and we are now getting more of the community involved.

I am proud to announce that the Composite Figures page is now up and running, and there are numerous examples for you to test your understanding of how to apply this concept to conquer such problems in the future. 3 cheers for such a clear expression. Check this handy chart to see if you will benefit from this page:

We are still in the process of working on Propositional Logic Word Problems, Circumcircle and Related Rates of Change. Please help us out by filling out a portion of the page.

It is now much easier for you to participate in one of these parties, by choosing a topic of your preference and hosting a wiki collaboration party. This way, you can pick a topic that you are comfortable with, and collaborate with your friends to help improve Brilliant. Ping me if you are interested, and I can provide additional help. Of course, for those who prefer to edit your own page, you should continue to do so (and we are working on getting you better tools to obtain feedback)


Thanks to the community, we have various parties this weekend led by them. This week, we will be improving:

Here are some of the noteworthy moments of the "Distinct objects into identical bins" wiki collaboration party.

1) We organized a roll call and came to know about each other's favorite colour.

2) We discussed the targeted level and the motivation for someone to read this wiki.

3) We reviewed the added examples to know what we love and what we don't.

4) And side by side I was organizing the examples' review by colour coding into the google spreadsheet.

4) We discussed the structure of the page.

5) We settled for the final structure of the page.

6) We congratulated Vishnu Bhagyanath for successfully hosting the collaboration.
