I go to Mathematics, I click DISCOVER, it looks like it wants me to use resources, then it says Collect Sketches, and nothing happens. 

Also how do you actually COLLECT sketches??  I click on the sketches and nothing happens!

And, a BH brother sent me a Banking sketch for me to build a windmill by discovering Banking (because I upgraded 2 Rum Distilleries to Lvl 10) and again nothing happens!

What is going on ?!

if i remember correctly, you get 1 sketch for free every day from your tinker. you need to have all different sketches of a discovery before you can discover it.

mathematics requires 6 sketches, sketch 1 to 6, you need 1 of every 6 before you can discover it, you can trade duplicate sketches on the market. your tinker can give you the same sketch multiple times, i think i got dynamo sketch 12 ten days in a row.

if you have all the sketches plus enough resources and you still can't discover it, i'd suggest submitting a ticket to support.

i hope my answer is helpfull to you

 To do Banking the number of rum distlieries doesn't matter, if I remember correctly. But mathmatics and smugglings need to completed first. To be able to research a sketch the discover button needs to be Red, like in the screen below. Note the required resources are less than the screen. To show you what this looks like I had to take a screen of one of mine that isn't researched. But the same requirements apply to you.

To collect sketches the tinker gives them to you daily. However, if you're researching the ones on the row below faster than the top  row you can delay the chance of getting the sketch you need. But for all discoveries sketches and resources are required to research. If your BH members are sending you sketches ask them for the ones you need now not what you'll need in a week from now. It doesn't do you any good just yet if you can't do the prerequisites.

Got it thx.    I got the wrong impression, that you could go directly to discovering Banking after upgrading a Rum Distillery to Level 10.

And isn't the objective to build a Windmill to get faster rum production?

How do I get to build the Windmill?

To get the windmill you need to research Banking first
