I am a teacher and I cannot help you. Sorry. It is because that is your homework, you SHOULD do it by your own. Don't be lazy. Thank you.

Not necessary to show us your homework, but show us and show to your teacher if you try to do your homework by your own. I know the reason why your teacher did not give you the references, means that she/he wants you to be active reading your books or looking for another resources to find the answers. She/he wants you to be active, as well as us here, not just wait for answers from us :)

nope i don't think so. Homework is given to investigate it by your own, so you get insight in the subject. And investigate something on your own will lead to better results :)

I'm agree with what sdekivit said. That's what I mean. When I was a student my teachers did the same to us. I think it's a good point so I apply it to my students too. But if you think my words are too harsh, you know what you should do :wink:
