Wiki Writing Party: 4/28 - 5/7

Based on the success of our recent Problem Writing Parties, I have decided to hold a supplementary Wiki Writing Challenge that will not only show off our talented writers to the Brilliant community, but also to people who have yet to join the site.

\(\textbf{This Week's Brilliant Wiki Skeletons}\)
Trigonometry: Cosine Rule (or Law of Cosines)
Algebra: Partial Fraction Decomposition: Linear Factors
Advanced Algebra: Polynomial Root Transformation
Calculus: Squeeze Theorem
Classical Mechanics: Circular Motion
Chemistry: Reactive Intermediates

How it Works

Every week, six to ten wiki structures across different topics will be created and need your help. Each of these wikis have a completed introduction and several detailed headers that scope out the body of the article (I call them wiki skeletons because they have just the bare bones filled in). Over the course of the challenge, wiki writers such as yourself will add their knowledge to the wikis for others to read, comment, and share. Feel free to comment on this note with the wikis you want to help with so that others know who they'll be working with.

Our Goal

We want to complete each wiki skeleton before the challenge is over so that they can all be featured as our wiki of the day over the course of the following week. Many of you are talented writers, so we'd like to see you leave your mark on the Brilliant wiki library.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I have to be an expert on one of these wikis to participate?
    You do not need to be an expert on any of the wiki topics to contribute to the challenge. You add what you know about a topic even if it's just a single sentence, a formula, an example you recently learned, or a relevant problem that inspired you.

  • Can I work on more than one wiki?

  • Can I alter the structure of a wiki by adding headers that I think are relevant?
    Yep. If you think a wiki skeleton is missing an important header, then you should add it!

  • What if I don't feel comfortable contributing to a wiki yet?
    If you don't feel ready to contribute to a wiki, you can always add feedback to a wiki that's in progress. For more information on how to add feedback, watch my one minute tutorial.

  • What if I have other questions or comments?
    That's exactly what this note is for. Post all your questions and comments here :)

In cosine rule wiki, the applications to bearing and heading problems section requires some work. The rest of the wiki is looking great. And more content can be added to the vector form of the cosine rule.

Would it be better to add a problem into one of the wikis as an example or as a link to a problem(Try it yourself)?

@Brilliant Member Anything you can contribute is good. No one submission is more preferred than another. Examples are great. Try it yourself problems are great.
