I was just scrolling by and I saw 20 "HELP" in a row!!!
And some of them were posted one after another!!!
Is there another way to answer questions instead of going like:
I'M GOING TO FORCEFEED YOU THE ANSWERS OPEN UP YOU'LL GET GOOD GRADES
because it's bad for them in the future, because if you're helping with just the answers, most of the time, they won't learn anything.
And I've heard of people only posting hints.
So is that better? Or is posting answers better?
I just realized that the first sentence doesn't make sense.
20 HELP questions, not helps.
i think posting answers is ok, just make sure they know why thats the answer because knowing the answer actually helps me a lot because most of the time it's just because i made a dumb mistake in my work. however if it's like a bajillion questions in a row about the same topic thats a little sus because it sounds like hw questions.. in that case i'd just give a few hints and give them a reminder to try it out first
I think teaching answers are usually much better..... So long as the answerer actually knows what they are talking about.
If the asker have already attempted it they should show their own working, and they should ask if someone can find their mistake.
For some people whole answers are good but there are far too many people here who are interested only in the answer and working that they can copy. By giving them the whole answer they will only learn a method to cheat. They will learn no maths.
Even for good kids, they will usually learn more if they have to do some of the thinking for themselves.
