What do we do about "homework" questions ? There are blatant examples nearly every day. Its tempting to fire off at them, and I have succumbed, but should there be some more structured way ? I'll often help the questions where someone has already clearly made an effort and is stuck, but today there is someone doing a B Tech wanting his project doing for him ! Steve

Snow Day Homework!

Three out of four of Kitefamily have got a snow day! Only Roger-X has had to go to school, but #2 son's teacher set him homework! He had to build a snowman and take a picture of it. Unfortunately, the snow is too powdery to pile high, so he scraped and swept the snow together to make a picture of a snow man. He got a little carried away, though - I had to stand on a chair to fit it all into the photo.

Optics question; physics homework... Answered

Hi guys, There is a new physics teacher at school and he asked us this question: an object fell into a very dark hole in the ground and you don't have a flashlight, but the sun is 30 degrees above the horizon. Using a mirror you have to reflect light from the sun into the hole. In one case the hole is one meter deep and in the second case it's three meters deep. The question is: what angle should the mirror be placed in relation to the sun (or horizon) to illuminate the hole? I don't really remember how to calculate this so if you can help me that would be great. Thanks!

Homework question - Philippe Petit's knees Answered

#2 Son is doing a short talk at school on Philippe Petit, the Frenchman that tightrope-walked between the Twin Towers. He has plenty of information, except he has found several references to a move Petit did called "knee salutes".  He would like to do one in front of the class, but we can't find an image or description of the move. Anybody know? (Edit: Best Answer chosen by #2 Son)

Homework Excuses thet will be the Talk of the Teachers Lounge

When you forget your homework, it's nice to add some humor to the situation and make the teacher laugh (hopefully).  Here are some excuses I came up with: "It fell into the Twilight Zone!" "My Chicken was in my room while I was doing it, and his diaper fell off.  I figured you didn't want it in the classroom, so I saved everyone the drama and chucked it in the chicken coup for them to enjoy.  Your welcome, by the way." "Well, just as I was finishing, I heard a 'er-er-reh-ah', and my paper turned into o paper figure.  Then there was a 'er-er-er-ee', and it transformed into a paper airplane and flew out the window!  The last thing I saw was a Decepticon insignia on the back.  I'd watch out.  It's a new era of Decepticons!" "My cat ate it, horked it up, and told me to clean it up.  I've got it in a plastic baggy, if you still want it." "Four penguins came into my room, took it, and told me they needed it for a top secret mission.  The leader told me 'You didn't see anything!'.  I assure you, it's being put to good use." "I was doing this outside, when this little green block-thing came up, looked at me, screamed, then blew up.  It's all ash now, so it's useless, so, I drew a picture of a creeper instead!" "Homework doesn't exist in my dimension." "Megatron stole it!  I'm telling you, I wasn't going to NOT give it to him!  He had a blaster in my face and everything!  I spent the rest of the night trying to figure out what happened, so I absolutely had NO time left for re-doing it." "I lost it in a mine.  If you want to find it, the world name is 'Procrastination'." "The neighborhood dog chased me, took the homework in his jaws, and told me 'This ain't over!'  I cannot tell you why he said that, because that is my bussiness." "I ate it.  It was bland until I added barbeque sauce." "Harry Potter turned it into a toad!  I yelled at him to turn it back, but he turned it into $1 million, and I am NOT giving it to you now!" "The TV hypnotized me into thinking it was a rabid squirrel, so I ended up smacking it into oblivion." "Function error; please define 'homework', or reboot." Please check out TheOneAndOnlyMissingNo.'s instructable on fake Windows XP error messages: Its a lot of fun to make, and printing them and giving them to your teacher would be funny as well. NOTE: Realizing now that it might insult the teacher (Thanks, Kiteman), if you DO use one of these, just come clean at the end, smile, and Say "Yes, I forgot to do it.  It won't happen again."

A Physics problem I can't explain properly Answered

If a stick with dm/dl =const is hanging on three nonstretchable pieces of string (l1=l2=l3 and l is the distance between them) you can't find the tensions, because the problem is unsolvable if all the strings don't stretch. It is kind of obvious, because if a string happens to be 0,00000000001 mm longer than the others the tension will be zero. But how to prove this normally?  Sorry, I almost never use English for Physics conversation, so I don't know any proper words...

Does anybody else have summer homework?

Is it not the most ridiculous thing?! I have to read 2 (count 'em - two) books and do a book report on each, one of which includes making maps, graphs, and a load of other stuff.To me, summer is supposed to be a break. Like, Christmas break, or Thanksgiving break, where there shouldn't be any homework given.And what's even more stupid (but slightly funny in a way) is that I'm going into 9th grade. All the teachers and counselors were saying how much stress you're going through, and then they make us do all this homework, which is major grade, be due on the first day of school?I'm not in AP classes either. Just 9th grade gifted! It's crazy!Geez! Shouldn't there be a law against this?

When am I helping vs doing someone's homework for them?

I try to answer all the questions that people post to my 'ibles. (At least all the ones I have a useful answer for)  I also know that some of my projects are being taught in schools and universities, which is really really great! Every once and a while I get a question that sounds like a homework question.  I'm not entirely sure it is, there might be cross-language difficulties or other reasons for the awkward phrasing and unusual specificity in the question, etc. If it's not a homework question I want to answer it.  If it is a homework question... well I don't do people's homework for them. I know there are lots of teachers (and students) here, what should I do?  Ignore it? Smartass answer? Something else?

Does anyone here have experience with software "College Algebra Solved"?

I'm taking College Algebra online and would really like some help with my homework and tests. I don't have a graphing calculator as the one I need is fairly expensive so I have to do everything by hand which takes FOREVER. Seriously it's the only reason I hate math. So I found this software called College Algebra Solved. It claims to answer the problems and gives a step by step for you as well. The one thing I hate about software like this is you can't demo it before you buy it. I was wondering if anyone here has experience with this software because honestly all I really want is this thing to answer my questions for me with little effort on my part. I know it's lazy but isn't that what technology is for anyways? I mean would you call using the toilet lazy because you don't want to dig a hole in your backyard? So, anyone, will this software relieve me of the long tedious drawn out work of solving my College Algebra problems by hand? Does anyone have real experience using this software?

Entire Safari Library of 8,000 Technical Books on line !for free! for California Residents - free scanner too

I just found out the San Francisco Public Library has the entire Safari Library on line for free, for anyone with a San Francisco Library card. That's 8,000!!!! technical books. They have the entire O'Reilly library. Anyone living in California can get a library card. (Since The Best of Instructables is an O'Reilly book it's also in the Safari Library, but you know you want your own copy!)If you don't live in California, check your local library's website, and see what they offer online. SF also has many eBooks, and books on tape on line for free.I also discovered they have a scanner by the Microfiche in the Main/Civic Center branch (I don't know about other branches), that will eMail microfiche/microfilm pages to you for free. It has a regular scanner also, so you can scan a book, or magazine page, and email it to yourself - for free - no need to pay for copies. The scanner has a USB slot, so you can just save the scans to a USB stick instead of emailing them. It's on the same floor as the Magazines.I don't know what other libraries are doing but SF has a huge amount of stuff available online.

Please help me. Note that I am NOT someone asking for homework help, my homework from school is not calculus.

Question    |  last reply


I've been under a great deal of stress lately. First off, there's the new school schedule. It cut lunch in half (By the time you get out of line with your food, lunch is over), doubled the amount of homework, and cut the time you have to do that work in half. (It basically scr*wed everyone) This schedule was supposedly based on a school vote (I guarantee at least 90% of the student body voted NO), but those "votes" went strait to the shredder. I've been doing 5-6 hours of homework every night. To add to this stress, I had my driving test, which I thankfully passed. That isn't the worst of it though. A few days ago we found a bloody lump on Mazee's neck, and we are worried sick that it is cancer. She went into surgery yesterday to get it removed, and we are anxiously waiting for the test results. Mazee has been crying and moaning all day, and I feel really bad about it. IT'S NOT CANCER! :DIt was Benign Hemangioma, a non-cancerous tumor.

I'm having headaches everyday; what could be causing them?

Ever since week 2 from the start of school, I've been getting headaches... and lots of it. From headaches, day 1, and a week thereafter, the headaches happened twice daily. Now it's week 3, and the headaches seem to be subsiding... a bit... Now I only get a few headaches every other day. What can be a viable explanation to this madness? In case this helps... I've limited my drinking of CocaCola since the past few months. I've started drinking water more often. I should be taking vitamins, but I forget to do so. What more is there? Yeah, we've received a lot of homework since school, day 2. Normally, I don't take in a lot of stuff just like that, but I was forced to do so under these circumstances. Perhaps, a combination of stress and vitamin deficiency? UPDATE: Headaches are subsiding now. Just a side note: it's as if everyone got headaches at the same time as I did. Multiple people received their dosage of headaches at roughly the same period. One of them was pregnant (understandable), the rest were college freshmen. I believe we can say that the headaches originated from a bit of "shock" from entering school (our homework instance rates upped by more than 100%!)
