Topic: Homework problems
July 16, 2019 / By Deeann Question:
I've just seen a question which has had a lot of stick thrown at it because it was obviously an attempt (which succeeded!) in getting help with a homework question - http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?...
However, I think those throwing the sticks are, perhaps, being a little unfair, in that there is a specific Homework Help subsection under 'Education and Reference'. Furthermore, many of the questions posted under 'Mathematics' are obviously homework which regularly get answered without a problem!
My own view is that 'Help' is the keyword. There's not much point in giving a full answer to a maths question because the person asking the question will not learn anything from that! However, pointers in the right direction are probably ok, although no doubt some will disagree!!

I don't agree with users who post purely to critise the asker for asking for help - these are non-answers and that is not what this site is about!
I don't often answer questions in the Homework Help category, but when I do I prefer to give direct then do the homework for them. I try to be helpful, pointing out where they can find further information, or explaining things they do not understand. That is what my understanding of 'Homework Help' is.
I found the discussion of homework 'cheating' in the Yahoo! Answers Suggestion Forum to be very interesting:
Yahoo! Answers Employee Katie said "You could very easily just include some jumping off points for a problem and let them work through the rest" - this is what I like to do.

Hello Tabitha. I won't disagree that when correctional staff stop looking , inmates will use that to smuggle anything that can be of value to them or others. I have to draw the line somewhere and I do honestly believe that a full cavity search is far too invasive to be done as a routine.
I work in a male prison and we have inmates squat and cough. Over the years I have literally seen an astounding number of various things that have been inserted and attempted to be smuggled inside the wire. For men, at least, when you squat and cough, the muscles relax enough that coughing will expel anything inserted unless it is VERY deep inside the body, in which case it will need surgery to get it out.
If we honestly suspect or have valid reasons to believe a cavity search is warranted, a court order must be gotten and the search can only be done by medical staff. And yes, we have done that on a limited basis over the years. Nine out of ten times we will place the inmate in a "dry cell" ( no running water so the toilet cannot be flushed) and monitor his stool for three passings before attempting to get a court order.
Although prison, by and of itself, is dehumanizing to a greater degree, I feel it would be crossing the line to institute cavity searches. I think we are doing the next best thing with dry cell watches and constant searches and shakedowns. We never stop looking to see what an inmate has, where he might try to hide things and what he is doing. Constant vigilance will definetely help to reduce contraband and illegal activities inside the wire.
I hope this helps and you can find it useful

Makes one surprise how one can provide a well reply however instruct the procedure. I believe the probo is apparent. Teachers don't make the effort to give an explanation for why the pupils must recognize the unique method's to the disorders. What they must strain with math is there's a running equation for each and every main issue. Example: How so much air(in rectangular toes in line with minute) will have to be handed throughout a refrigerant coil, and what sort of refrigerant will have to go over identical coil while to take away sufficient warmness from an area to appropriately cool it? How many kilos in line with rectangular inch will have to the suction facet of the compressor have to ensure that R22 to make forty levels (ultimate) around the coil? The identical is going for some thing that works on this international. How many cubic toes in line with minute of air is produced by way of a four wing blade with a 33 measure pitch that's 18 inch's in diameter and revolving at 1150 rpm(rounds in line with minute)? See that is what is wanted on this international. Teachers that provide an explanation for why we want math in existence.

I know a lot of adults have problems with the kids getting homework help from here on Yahoo! or even on the Internet but think about it this way; if we would have had this when we were growing up, would you have used it because I know that I would've. So, what I'm basically saying is that if they don't get the information from their parents or from tutors, they'll turn to Yahoo! Answers or the Internet, in general.
I also think that kids should pay more attention in class, pay attention to their teachers, and their parents. They also need to work on it themselves or they'll never learn because if they have people working on their problems for them, they'll never fully learn because they'll go to college with limited information. As you can see, I'm kind of torn but I'm very much for the parent's point of view.

To me, homework help is like: "Could you show me how you derive the answer to this problem?" as it shows a confusion as to steps taken to achieve the proper answer.
But when someone goes: " Fist is to glove as shoe is to.....", I know I'm doing the homework

I think that many people in that section (and also in languages) dont want help, they want us to do their entire homework and I think that's wrong.
