How I Use It
I direct students to log in to their brilliant accounts when they have completed the required tasks for the day. I never force them to use it, rather it is an option for those students looking for more challenging problems.
My Take
Brilliant is a great way to allow advanced students to go beyond the curriculum and try new things. It won't necessarily engage an uninterested student, but it does provide challenge to those who need it. And since it gives diagnostic pre-tests, it is good for multiple levels.
