# Wiki Writing Party: 5/16 - 5/29

This party is now over. Thanks for your contributions. You are invited to join the next party!

Whoa, I had no idea that my challenge would have so many of you contributing to the wiki library. As it turns out, our very first Wiki Writing Challenge helped us churn out wikis for the law of cosines, circular motion, and reactive intermediates along with some work done on squeeze theorem and partial fractions.

With that said, the Wiki Writing Challenge continues! I hope you like algebra, because we are pretty algebra heavy this week. We are calling on all of our users to add what they can to the following wikis:

$$\textbf{This Week's Brilliant Wiki Skeletons}$$
Parametric Equations
Polynomial Inequalities
Perimeter
Implicit Differentiation
Intercepts of Rational Functions

## 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.

• 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?
Absolutely.

• 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 :)
