Questions appropriate for a Stack Exchange-style Q&A are on topic for Mathematics SE and MathOverflow. If you would like to experiment with this type of content on MathOverflow, it might be something you can try; but unfortunately, we are not currently accepting proposals for new sites whose core premise is to solicit critique, reviews, or other types ...

This is an excellent idea! For those not familiar with the area51 process, here's how you can help get this site off the ground: Go to the site and click on "follow" in the upper left.

These questions are then voted on, but each person is limited to five votes total. The current sample questions are taken from mathoverflow and MSE, but this is not ...

Rather than posting there, I provide here a potential source: If you have sufficient time/interest, then check out the Mathematical Modeling Handbook published by COMAP. The lesson plans/sketches are aimed at secondary school students, but each has a teacher's note immediately following it - "Extending the Model" - written by one of the world's foremost ...

An additional information (posted in the form of answer): as Area 51 works, it is also very helpful if you just go there and vote. Votes can also be rearranged. It is important to have questions with vote score 10, so it is helpful if you vote on questions with score less than 10. So if you do not want to get involved, but want to help, this is also one ...
