Details of the proposal | |

Project description | There is a genuine requirement for a Sister Project WikiDerivations on Ab Initio Derivations on Pure Sciences, particularly, mathematics, physics and physical chemistry. From the First principles. Using Ockham's Razor as a strict guideline. Then, layer by layer, generalising and advancing further. Relevant portions already in Wikipedia could be linked or copied from. But simplest at the very beginning. Nothing more than what is absolutely necessary. |

Is it a multilingual wiki? | May be discussed later. After the main pages have been developed. Community to decide collectively. |

Potential number of languages | Chiefly in English and Latin. Could be any language. Community to decide collectively. Later. |

Proposed URL | https://en.wikiderivations.org/Main_Page WikiDerivations |

Technical requirements | |

New features to require | Same as that required by Wikipedia. |

Development wiki | None proposed other than the project guidelines. Community to collectively decide. |

Interested participants | |

Open for Wikipedia and Wikimedia editors and contributors. | |

Ab Initio Derivations on Pure Sciences, particularly, mathematics, physics and physical chemistry. From the First principles.

Using Ockham's Razor as a strict guideline. Then, layer by layer, generalising and advancing further.

But simplest at the very beginning. Nothing more than what is absolutely necessary.

A sub-site, Wikipedia Derivations, or as an aside with an appropriate link, and then an ever-growing list of derivations contributed by community members. Posters themselves. Anyone competent to contribute. Edited. Simplified further. To be used as an Online Learning Aid.

To effectively end the monopoly of organised educational institutions on the greatest achievements of the Human Minds. Let the society enjoy the beauty of the interweaving of logic, analysis and experimental data, without the threats of memorisation and faithful reproduction in exams.

I waited for a long time, hoping that eventually, Wikipedia would stumble on to this simple idea. 10 years have passed by, but Wikipedia did not. So the time is ripe for me to post this idea.
