Long term goalsEdit

  • Organize data about mathematics

Short term goalsEdit

  • Use the property has facet polytope (P1312) on all applicable items (7/??), and create missing items
  • Gather information from infoboxes
  • Create more properties that semantically describe items
  • Create featured items that show how properties should be used
  • Create "has part" property entries for formula components / identifiers -> discussion
