Is there any mileage in the idea of having local articles?
These would be things that do not stand on their own but could be used as the glue in a tutorial or as answer to a question.
I was thinking that one could write a number of ”chapters” or ”lessons” and add them to a collection. Each lesson would guide the reader through material, providing the links to definitions, explanations, worked examples and exercises.
To give a concrete example, the details of arithmetic functions, convolutions, inverses etc are already available on the site. But we need some motivation, some path through the maths in order to understand their significance (unless you happen to be an expert in analytic number theory).
