I was wondering why isn't there more scientific courses like biology or physics and more CS courses?
Really helps me stay informed in all areas I’m interested in.
Perfect for helping me brush up on my math skills and understand things in a new way.
Pretty good for students
The title describes it
I decided to conquer my fears of inadequacy and stay open to this app, and even in one week I can see how it’s paying off. About six months ago, I tried it but was quickly intimidated and even uninstalled the app. This time, however, I’m staying open and not judging myself when I get incorrect answers. (Although once I did judged the app developers for an “incorrect” answer of mine, but while writing a feedback to them for why their answer and explanation to their answer were incorrect, I realized why their answer was right and what I had missed in my own deductive training to have tracked the incorrect conclusion. LOL.) I do get a nice little dopamine hit though when I see that “Correct!” after hitting “submit.” The program presents in a way that is really encouraging to just get in there and work my mind in new ways. I noticed I feel better and more organized in my thinking when I start my day with about 20+ minutes of these kinds of brain exercises in the morning. So I have my coffee and breakfast while working through some problems in a relaxed way. I’m looking forward to trying other courses/programs after I finish the Logic one.
I’m going to college and taking academic courses for the first time in several years. I failed the first day assessment for Elementary Statistics, so I dropped it. Since then, I’ve been trying to brush up on my math in various ways. However, most of the “traditional” ways have either not worked, brought up negative associations for me, or both. This app TEACHES math from the ground up, along with many neat tips and tricks, in a way that’s novel and fun for me, but not insulting to my intelligence or dignity. Plus, this app’s approach to teaching math visually and conceptually is getting through to me in ways that several math teachers have failed to do. I only have the FREE version, too! Don’t let the subscription cost scare you! You CAN download, use, and benefit from Brilliant without paying a dime!
The program seems to stay just in front of my rusty memory. Learning new things and recalling all the stuff from so long ago is a lot of fun!
However, ease of learning and interactivity are only half I of what I’m looking for in an educational app. If Brilliant really beefed out its educational game offerings and number of subjects to learn and depth of those subjects, then I won’t hesitate to renew in 8 months. -Adult Learner/Higher Ed Learner
By far one of the most productive and engaging apps I’ve used on my phone. Always learn on the go
