Education : Brilliant app, math and science : Learn think !

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.”


Brilliant app is for anyone who has an interest in mathematics and science. The app replaces lecture videos with hands-on, interactive lessons. It’s a better (and more fun) way to learn.

Dive into advanced, creative problem solving and improve domain knowledge and critical thinking skills. Learn how different domains, like number theory and computer science, are interconnected. Discover how core math and science concepts apply to modern topics.

Brilliant's entertaining and educational course library is great for beginners, and also includes intermediate and advanced topics for teachers and lifelong learners. 


Brilliant is made with the loving efforts of lifelong learners from MIT, Caltech, Duke, the University of Chicago, and more.

"We’re passionately working on delivering the very best math and science education on earth. Your age, country, and gender don't determine what you are capable of learning. You do."



Brilliant creates a culture of learning around inquiry, curiosity, and openness to failure. All of our courses are written with these principles of learning in mind.

Effective learning math & science:

  • Excites

The greatest challenges to education are disinterest and apathy.

  • Cultivate curiosity

Questions and storytelling that cultivate natural curiosity are better than the threat of a test.

  • Is active

Effective learning is active, not passive. Watching a video is not enough.

  • Is applicable

Use it or lose it: it is essential to apply what you're learning as you learn it.

In school, students are often trained to apply formulas to rote problems. But this traditional approach prevents deeper understanding of concepts, reduces independent critical thinking, and cultivates few useful skills.

The capacity to think critically separates the great from the good. We can grow this capacity by trying — and often failing — to solve diverse, concrete problems.

  1. Start with simple questions and stories that build your foundation and intuition.
  2. Ramp up to solving problems that seemed beyond your ability.
  3. Study different ways of solving the problems that are out of your grasp.
