Getting Started[edit]

I saw the edit you left on my user talk page. I would like to ask a few questions on I could get started on learning and contributing. Thanks --Tega Sugaray (discusscontribs) 16:01, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

@Tega Sugaray: Welcome! What questions do you have? -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 17:07, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I tried to take some courses on the school of mathematics and I found some of the empty pages and I am currently trying to add some content to the school of mathematics and I am not quite sure how I can get others to help contribute to the non existing empty pages. I would also be grateful if you could help with some tips on writing mathematical symbols.--Tega Sugaray (discusscontribs) 17:32, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

@Tega Sugaray: If you find empty pages, decide whether they should be improved or removed. If you see something that could be removed, tag it with {{subst:prod}}. That gives it 90 days to be improved or removed. I haven't done any work with mathematics symbols. You might check in the Wikiversity:Colloquium for assistance there. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 22:06, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

I just finished a write up on rational numbers and I would like someone to review it--Tega Sugaray (discusscontribs) 18:49, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

@Tega Sugaray: That's a great start! I cleaned it up a little, added references and some additional resources. Something to keep in mind is that Wikiversity is not Wikipedia. Since we focus on learning by doing, we want to try to have some type of activity in each lesson to reinforce the concepts. For detail on why this approach is effective, see Contextual Learning. Keep up the good work! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 22:06, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
