There are other forums on the internet that have 'homework question' forums only :wink: the key is directing students to the right answer, like suggesting to look up the article by Watson and Crick on http://www.pubmed.com and look up the book on http://www.amazon.com.

Some universities actually go through forums such as this one and if they find their students asking homework questions they actually fail them. I had some friends that had trouble with an assignemt and they asked for help on a forum and ended up failing the course. Pretty said, huh? :cry:

That IS sad. To most of us here, biology is the easiest thing in the world. But to many, it is possibly more difficult than swimming to the moon. I always say that if a student makes a truly good-faithed attempt, he or she is more than entitled to ask for help.

The first few months of this forum's existance, that's all I DID here :) ((saying "I" here because this was back when I was the only mod)). The way I see it, I encourage people to ask for help with their homework...provided the students make a good-faith attempt at doing it themselves before turning to us.
