Homework Thread

Post by damien james » Wed Jun 28, 2006 11:04 pm

Can we have seperate topic just for homework questions so that all of the new posts about homework will be moved there and not clutter up rest of forum?

Hehe, the homework forum should have a bug programed into it so that when you hit the "post" button, instead of posting your question, it automatically redirects you to google. :twisted:

I wonder if any of them would get the hint. :P

I proposed a homework policy thing to the mods, we'll see how it goes. With any luck, it'll just be deleteion :)

I wonder how many of them would bother reposting their questions if they got deleted.

I hate students who just post their homework question without any tries to do that by themselves. And at the end they add the superwords: Please be quick, as soon as possible, reply fast, etc. grr! They think we do not have anything else rather than helping to do their homework :twisted:

These students do not need to discus they need printable answer.

So I think ... Can we make such students to think and make them thoughtful rather than robots????

Like encourage them, by giving hint questions to find there answer????

That's a great idea. However, we shouldn't condemn these people so harshly. After all, there are problems to which the answers cannot be found anywhere.
