Cracking a math problem? Practicing Latin? Splitting an atom? This room is a side spot you can pop into to go back and forth on your homework problems.

ThisIsChris 2017-12-04 02:10:06

ThisIsChris 2017-12-04 03:25:29

I know there's a lot of smart people here so I'm sure we can help each other out!

ThisIsChris 2017-12-04 03:25:55

In a past life I was a college math instructor and I still love the stuff so if there's anything in that area I can help with send me a ping!

givemetheafd 2017-12-04 03:42:12

Im an junior electrical engineering student, also available for homework help !

Deleted User 2017-12-04 05:16:00

@givemetheafd Have you taken a signals and system class?

Deleted User 2017-12-04 17:02:40

What is 10 x 10?

Rick 2017-12-04 23:58:57

Der Seeteufel - SD 2017-12-05 01:08:58

I was a nuclear reactor operator. I can help with the splitting the atom questions.

duramaxed 2017-12-05 05:21:04

Any college kids that need help writing any papers, I'm here to help!

givemetheafd 2017-12-05 14:17:19

@Deleted User i have taken signal processing, but not the junior level class yet

ThisIsChris 2017-12-06 01:38:49

Hey guys, just wanted to quickly introduce myself as someone you can go to for academic assistance. If you need help with history, humanities, literature, or writing feel free to reach out to me either on here or my DM's.

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:09:23

So, it's finals today and I have a problem. I had all A's this semester, and a lot of them dropped to B's, C's, and one F... I don't know what happened, but I feel like my brain has been fried this month, it seems so hard to focus on work and study like I used to at the beginning of the semester. What can I do?

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:09:33

Is this burnout?

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:10:15

@The Eternal Anglo Where are you studying?

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:10:30

As in, physical location. Are you near a computer or a laptop when studying?

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:10:59

I study at my home PC, in the master bedroom

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:11:11

All my classes require online attention

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:11:19

What subjects are you taking?

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:11:41

(in general)

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:12:11

Intermediate Algebra, Python, Microcomputer application (Microsoft applications) visual arts, and intermediate english

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:12:45

Are you finding yourself neglecting one or more subjects until the deadline becomes uncomfortably close?

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:13:25

Yupp, mainly with math/microsoft applications

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:13:36

(first year student btw)

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:13:51

Are you familiar with the term "context switching?"

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:14:19

Not entirely

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:14:42

OK, so here's what I think is happening. It's the same problem I had throughout my college years.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:14:54

You're studying on your PC, seems like that's by necessity

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:15:07

but there are so many distractions available

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:15:16

Discord, Twitter, who knows what else

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:15:44

So as soon as the material becomes boring or difficult to comprehend, your brain seeks the easier novelty available through these other mediums

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:16:09

And then you jump to another subject in which you think it will be easier to accomplish something at the time.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:16:20

Is what I'm saying correct?

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:18:06

Sounds right actually

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:18:45

OK, so the first item of business is to limit distractions. Here's my advice for that.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:19:10

If all your study material is online, that's a big challenge. It's much easier to focus on printed material.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:19:30

If you can obtain printed material, I highly recommend it. But it's not a necessity.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:19:57

What you have to do is, before you sit down to study, make a list of what you want to accomplish in each course.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:20:32

So in today's Python session you're going to understand the concept of generators and write some example code or complete the exercises.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:20:45

And that's **all** you're going to allow yourself to do once you start

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:21:13

Everything else gets turned off. Use a stripped-down browser, remove all other devices from the area.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:21:27

If you cheat, you're only cheating yourself.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:22:02

Once you check it off, take a break. Fifteen minutes is usually ideal. Get up, walk around, rest your eyes, check your various social media, then knock out the next item.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:22:48

When you context switch frequently, you don't allow yourself to build up a foundation for learning, understanding, and retaining material. It all gets flushed out as soon as you switch to some other distraction or task.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:23:48

If you have an old laptop laying around, it might be worth it to do a fresh install of your preferred OS on it, and ONLY install the bare minimum you need to use it for your coursework

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:23:59

and take it somewhere quiet, like the library or bookstore

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:24:26

that way you're in a place that's not as comfortable to you. That actually improves focus in my experience.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:25:12

I never studied in my dorm room. I always went to the library. But all my material was printed back then (2000-2004).

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:27:23

It may be a good idea for me to print out what I can for studying purposes as well, and the 15 minute break seems good, actually

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:27:43

yeah, it's very important to take breaks.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:27:54

going for a walk was the secret sauce for me

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:29:21

It's going to be very difficult at first not to get distracted, but that's where the checklist will help you.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:29:37

The checklist says "This is the only thing I'm allowed to do right now."

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:30:51

I recently studied for a math test for 12 HOURS... still did not do well on the test itself. We live in a pretty cozy neighborhood, so I could go walking.

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:31:05

I really like this checklist idea actually!

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:31:10

Right, but did you really study?

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:31:24

If you're checking your phone every 10 minutes, you're just treading water.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:31:54

(I have two STEM master's degrees, I've been in exactly the same situation 😃 )

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:32:25

quick anecdote: when I was in calculus, I "studied hard"

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:35:22

Taking notes on all of this good information, also that is impressive my dude!

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:35:40

We have a library that I can use, and maybe normie starbucks might work, too

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-11 18:37:44

I appreciate all the advice you've given mate!

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:52:27

but I didn't strive to understand what I was doing. As soon as I got a rudimentary understanding, I immediately went on to other subjects or distractions

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:52:46

needless to say, I got rekt later on in the course because I did not have the prior fundamentals down.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:53:25

So that summer, I went back through the text. I worked graveyard at a factory, and we got a few breaks every shift.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:54:04

So on the first break, I would very slowly and deliberately read the explanation at the beginning of the section. Then I would write down some practice problems.

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:54:24

When the line went down (which happened a lot that summer), I would pull out the practice problems and work them on the scrap cardboard

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:55:07

so that fall when I took the next course in the calc sequence, I did just fine because I took the time to get a full understanding

Deleted User 2017-12-11 18:55:35

it didn't take much time, but it did take full concentration. you'll see once you eliminate distractions that concentration matters much more than time spent.

JC17-OR 2018-01-12 04:34:59

I would be happy to help with mathematics (calc 2 and below), also EMT-Basic and Nursing Assistant questions as well.

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-24 20:59:51

I am writing a rhetorical analysis for my writing class on this video. I need to both analyze the argument and the way the speaker presents as well as determine the credibility of the information presented

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-24 21:01:23

Note: The primary goal here is to examine rhetoric, how effectively the speaker’s ideas are communicated, not necessarily to agree or disagree with the speaker.

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-24 21:02:03

But naturally I can be contrarian and present evidence against the speaker

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-24 21:03:37

Dude runs an NGO lol

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-24 21:03:58

He's jewish too I'm weak

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:13:25

@here Anyone know anything about bond valuation ?

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:13:56

@BryceB-ND Yes! What's the question?

ophiuchus 2018-01-25 19:14:04

Also yes

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:14:06

If you have a floater and an inverse floater derived from your collateral, is the coupon rate of the collateral the weighted average of the floater and inverse floater?

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:14:47

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/387060078433271808/406165023413764096/unknown.png

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:15:08

I got 8%

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:15:20

I used this "

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/387060078433271808/406165159296499715/unknown.png

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:15:26

I used this as my example to go off of.

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:17:12

I also want to check my work on computing the dirty and clean price as well as accrued interest of another example in case you both have an idea on that as well

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:17:20

This is a similar example.

ophiuchus 2018-01-25 19:17:33

Lemme find my calculator

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:17:37

^uploading

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:17:39

ty

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:21:59

Pretty sure 8 is correct

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:22:48

Would just be the average

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:22:55

Ok good that's what i had thought

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:23:18

What's the other question?

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:23:30

3. Assume the original maturity a bond with face value $1000 is 8 years. The annualized
yield to maturity for the bond is 6.25% and its annual coupon rate is 7.5% being
2
semiannually paid. The bond was issued on 8/1/2015, and bought on 12/1/2017.
Compute the following:
(1) dirty price, (2) clean price and (3) accrued interest. (7 points)

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:24:06

I calculated 1058.76 for dirty price, 1046.26 for clean and 12.5 for accrued interest.

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:24:30

I understand this problem, what I don't get is how to calculate the accrued interest because I don't know how to determine the intervals of the semi annual interest payments.

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:26:26

Hmm. Send pic of question

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:27:03

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/387060078433271808/406168109834174475/unknown.png

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:28:39

2 min

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:31:40

Ok so the equation for AI might be

cash flow (1-(days/total days in coupon period))
Idk that helps

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:33:28

Yeah I know that much, thank you, I'm having trouble just discerning the days since the last coupon payment from the dates given is all.

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:36:15

Bonds usually pay interest on the first day of January and July

SamanthaM 2018-01-25 19:36:31

That's usually what semiannual implies.

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:36:37

Ok.

BryceB-ND 2018-01-25 19:36:38

Ty

ThisIsChris 2018-01-25 20:26:45

@SamanthaM awesome, I think this is the first homework help of the new academic channels!

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 00:29:26

Would anyone @here be willing to read my rought draft for a paper I'm writing on this video:

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 00:31:37

Also any specific sources to help back up my statements would be appreciated

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 00:37:17

@StrawberryArmada I suggest putting the paper into a google doc, and creating a share link where anyone with the link can comment on (but not edit) the document

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 00:39:17

Good idea

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 00:46:18

This should work

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 00:46:20

Halp pls

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 00:46:28

:)

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 01:22:09

@StrawberryArmada Alright dude I looked over it, left my comments and some sources I found. Hopefully someone else can give it a once over as well @here

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 01:22:32

Thanks mate. I still have a week before the finally draft

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 01:25:17

yw!

Warren H 2018-01-29 02:52:36

Anyone able to help with an algebra problem? Pretty basic

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:53:17

@Warren H shoot

Warren H 2018-01-29 02:53:32

9u = 6/5

Warren H 2018-01-29 02:53:47

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/387060078433271808/407367696531849226/image.jpg

Warren H 2018-01-29 02:53:49

How do i get to 2/15?

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:54:00

Multiply both sides by 5

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:54:10

so on the left you have 45 u

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:54:43

an the right the 5 on the bottom cancels out with the 5 on the top you just multiplied

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:54:52

so 45u = 6

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:55:03

then divide both sides by 45

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:55:09

so u = 6/45

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:55:24

6 is 2\*3, and 45 = 15\*3

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:55:49

so u = (2\*3)/(15\*3)

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:56:06

the 3 on top and bottom cross out

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:56:11

so u = 2/15

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:57:08

@Warren H oh you want it the way they did it in the picture? it is similar:

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:57:17

starting from 9u = 6/5

Warren H 2018-01-29 02:57:29

Your way seems easier. There's was confusing as heck

Warren H 2018-01-29 02:57:54

How did you know 15 x 3? Instead of 9x5?

Warren H 2018-01-29 02:58:03

I'm bad with fractions lol

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:58:32

I'll do it closer to the way they did it:
starting from 9u = 6/5
divide both sides by 9, so u = (6/5) * (1/9)

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:58:42

so u = 6/(5*9)

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:58:59

now 6 is 2\*3 and 9 is 3\*3

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:59:12

so u = (2\*3)/(5\*3\*3)

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:59:29

cross out a 3 on top and bottom

Warren H 2018-01-29 02:59:39

Ohh okay.

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:59:40

so u = 2/(5*3)

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:59:44

so u = 2/15

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 02:59:52

yep

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:00:58

So I do that every time? Divide both sides by whatever the number is?

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:01:46

Yep that will always work

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:03:49

Awesome thanks. One more, this one is a negative number. I'm guessing it works the same?

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:03:56

-4w = 6/7

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:04:42

So divide both sides by -4 and I get 6/7 * 1/4? Or -1/4

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:06:23

Yep:
divide both sides by -4, so w = 6/(7* -4)
6 is 2\*3 and -4 is 2\*-2
so w = (2\*3) / (7\*2\*-2)
then cross out the two on top and bottom
so w = 3/(7*-2)
so w = 3/(-14) or equivalently w = -3/14

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:06:48

@Warren H the second one

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:07:16

the negative sign stays with the number it is attached to

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:10:14

Okay. So I got 3/7 the first time. But it's actually negative 3/14ths? Or -3 over 14?

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:11:53

Yep. If you're asking if there is a difference between " negative 3/14ths vs -3 over 14" the answer is no, they have the same value

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 03:12:39

Uh. Divide both sides by 9

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 03:12:48

Oh geez

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 03:12:55

I didn't see all this

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:13:16

@Warren H One thing you might notice at the beginning: think about the equation -4w = 6/7

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:13:39

one things you might notice is that the left side is -4 * w, and the left side is a positive number (specifically 6/7)

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:13:55

that means w times a negative number is something positive

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:14:41

so whatever w is, w must be some negative number, since -4 times a positive number would be negative.

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:15:34

@Warren H This ^ might help as a kind of double check on your work, thinking what sign the final answer should have

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:16:18

Okay yeah that makes sense.

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:16:32

Ive been working a lot with linear equations

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:18:57

@Warren H Yeah they are an important building block for a lot of things but there can be a lot to keep track of when getting used to them. Any thoughts in particular about linear equations? Let us know if you have any questions in the future!

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:22:31

Haha I don't like them lol. The worst part of math for me is fractions, and finding missing numbers like x lol

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:24:41

@Warren H haha yeah if you remember up there ^^^ the first way I wanted to solve for u... first thing I did was cross-multiplied the denominators because I don't like using fractions either if I don't have to.
Are you doing this for a math major?

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:25:41

Yeah I will try to remember that

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:26:14

And nope not at all. I'm majoring in media production. This is just a required core class. Even tho I took 4 years of math in high school 🙃

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:28:27

@Warren H yep it's a common core req for almost everybody. welp, feel free to ping <@&387091385075105804> for help here throughout the semester!

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:29:02

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:30:18

@Warren H Academic Expert, it pings everyone has volunteered to make themselves available to anyone asking questions. Lots of fellow students and teachers and former teachers here

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:31:02

Although pinging @here works pretty well too

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:31:58

Ah okay. That's good to know @ThisIsChris

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:35:40

If you're still here I need some clarification on a problem that I think I did correctly but it's not approving

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:36:00

@Warren H sure!

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:36:33

-2z - 4z = 19+ 4

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:37:53

left side is -6z
right side is 23
so -6z = 23
divide both sides by -6
so z = 23/(-6) or equivalently z = -23/6

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:38:28

Oh

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:38:37

lol I didn't do the signs right. I got 23/6 that's why

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:38:51

that'll do it

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:39:16

😆 it's really hard to pay attention to that sometimes. Especially on timed exams

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:40:19

Yeah, best thing I could advise is that whenever you see a negative sign ANYWHERE, double check at the end that the signs look right

ThisIsChris 2018-01-29 03:41:32

if all the numbers are positive then you probably don't have to be too careful. It's just when a negative sign appears, keep going, but walk through it again at the end

Warren H 2018-01-29 03:42:21

Yeah that's a good way to check. I try my best lol

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:34:55

Anyone @here to help with another math question?

micbwilli 2018-01-30 04:36:05

I might could. I haven't done math in a bit, but I can do things like the last question posted.

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:37:15

I know the answer to this question, I'm just not sure how to solve to get to it

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:37:44

6/9 * 3/12 squared - 4/6

micbwilli 2018-01-30 04:38:24

Is there an equals sign?

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:39:01

No. supposed to solve it

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:39:13

PEMDAS

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:39:17

I meant I knew the answer

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:39:21

Order of operations

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:39:33

Yep did that

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:40:11

Would a photo help for reference?

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:40:15

Yes

micbwilli 2018-01-30 04:40:17

Yes.

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:41:43

How do I get 1/24?

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:42:13

When I multiply I get 54/1296 and i don't know how to reduce it because I'm bad at fractions

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:44:07

Simplify 6/9 * 9/144

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:44:19

The 9s cancel out

micbwilli 2018-01-30 04:44:33

54/54 = 1 and 1296/54 = 24

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:44:39

And 6 goes into 144 24 times

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:45:07

So cancelled out the 9s and divide 6/144 ?

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:45:12

Is that mastering physics but for math

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:45:16

Yes

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:45:36

Or what @micbwilli said

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:45:42

Either works

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:45:57

Okay thanks @GetOffMyState#8267

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:46:32

@micbwilli could you explain your way a bit more? How do you know that's what your supposed to do?

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:48:52

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/387060078433271808/407759046565822476/image.jpg

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:49:16

Both rely on what I did above with another example

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:51:18

For your example think about how 6/9 * 9/144 = 9/9 * 6/144

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:51:42

The 9/9 is 1 and can therefore be ignored

micbwilli 2018-01-30 04:51:50

If you are trying to reduce a fraction start with a common number and just work down.

So like with 54/1296, both are multiples or 9. I knew 54 was and I checked 1296. That's 6/144. I see if 6 can be used to divide 144, and since it can it becomes 1/24.

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:52:46

6/144 = 6 /(24 * 6) = 6/6 * 1/24

micbwilli 2018-01-30 04:53:01

If you are unsure there to start diving top and bottom by 2 works if both numbers are even.

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:53:17

^ this

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:57:50

This is so complicated lol. Okay. So just find the GCD and then reduce it down.

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:58:18

Or in this case, I could just divide 6/144

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:58:25

Right?

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:58:29

Yes

Deleted User 2018-01-30 04:58:56

Because the 9s happen to cancel out

Warren H 2018-01-30 04:59:06

And if it's not a problem where it can cancel out then what?

Deleted User 2018-01-30 05:00:10

You can find the GCD

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:01:22

Okay

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:02:17

Thanks. Yall

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:04:21

On another note, why do we teach PEMDAS when it should be PEDMSA?

Deleted User 2018-01-30 05:05:21

Multiplication and division are the same really

Deleted User 2018-01-30 05:05:35

Same with addition and subtraction

Deleted User 2018-01-30 05:05:50

So PEMDAS is easier to remember

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:05:54

I've gotten answers wrong for doing multiplication first sometimes though

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:06:06

And same with addition and sibtraction

Deleted User 2018-01-30 05:07:46

You might be breaking another rule or your teachers suck. Unless I’m forgetting something that’s wrong and you shouldn’t have been marked down

Deleted User 2018-01-30 05:09:13

If you are using a computer program it is probably programmed by someone diverse and doesn’t account for multiple but equally valid ways to the answer

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:09:25

This class is online. The teacher just supervises. I followed PEMDAS as taught but when I did I kept getting answers wrong and when I viewed the solution they were doing division first

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:09:28

Yes omg

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:09:54

The worst part is that it only counts one answer correct. And if you don't get that correct it marks it wrong even if you understand the concept

Deleted User 2018-01-30 05:10:00

Bring it up in office hours, that’s BS

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:10:11

And you cant practice the same problem twice

Warren H 2018-01-30 05:10:19

It keeps changing it up
