That's so weird, so for the y-intercept, they rejected 7.5 as the y-intercept? That's so weird because *they* give you the equation in decimal!
oh woops sorry that was the next problem
the one they flagged wrong was the coordinate points -4.8 and -0.375
they said those were incorrect and that the right answer was -24/5 and -3/8 which are the exact same numbers
@Warren H do you get points off for that? might want to bring it up with your professor in that case
Yes I did. I will for sure. If this was on a test and graded in that way I would have gotten the problem wrong
Hi. New to the server. If anyone needs help with any kind of research, I'm your goy. I have a lot of experience in it and I even enjoy it oddly enough. This extends out to school essays, work related, or even anything out of general curiosity. Any subject as long as I don't need a degree to grasp the basic concept. I can write you(within reason and with digression) any paper/article, and other kinds of research assignments. I also excel at photo shop. Advice and suggestions are free. Real work is cheap. DM me if you are interested.
Does anyone have any protips or suggestions on how to cultivate a better habit of doing homework/getting schoolwork done outside of class? All through normal school I was in the category of kids who didn't need to study and could get through homework during school hours without much difficulty, but now that I'm in college my grades are suffering because I don't have the habit/mindset of doing homework/studying outside of class. Anybody have experience with overcoming this?
@Gaius Mucius Scaevola Wake up early. 5:30-6. Go for a run. Then block 1-2 hours for homework. If it isn't done first thing, there won't be motivation left at the end of the day.
wake up, go for a run/exercise, breakfast, homework
I think I can do that to catch up on all the work i'm behind on this semester
I'm not really a classroom/lecture learner, I learn by doing which is why i went to trade school
all the lab/trade classes I do much better at
it's the classes with lectures and homework i struggle in
has anyone read "Nations and Nationalism" by Ernest Gellner
gotta do a book review on it
ive read a good amount but i dont have time to finish and was struggling to figure out what i should write
How about a defense or refutation of the main idea. Which, I believe, is something along the lines of 'nationalism is a bureaucratically enforced method of creating a homogeneous population through state or industry created organizations.'
Nationalism, as being in opposition to localism or tribalism.
Well, not exactly in opposition. As the 'group' becomes a larger entity, it becomes more difficult to maintain a truly homogeneous culture. Ergo, it becomes important for state-created organizations to synthesize naturally-formed local cultures to form a 'baseline median.'
It's like how 'Germany' is really a combination of more local groups from Prussia, Swabia, Bavaria, ect.
gotcha, yeah the main things in the paper are supposed to be identifying the main argument/s and evaluating its persuasiveness
i was having some trouble narrowing down what the actual main argument was
"nationalism is an inescapable consequence of modernity" i think is some of it
idk whether to write about that or maybe include his definition of nationalism as wellmaybe
Yes. That's exactly right. But it must be noted that he defines nationalism as to mean the combination of local groups to form a median. You should include both points because they support each other.
Because by 'modernity' he means the breakup of agricultural society in favor of industrialization.
One is just the outflow of the other.
okay nice that helps clear it up thank you!
Although, as a counter-argument, you could make the claim that it isn't *really* industrialization that is the main cause.
*cause of nationalism
true i was thinking that aswell
Interesting. What example are you going to use?
im not sure yet, kind of just gathering my thoughts and re-reading some parts right now
Ok! Good luck.
Is anybody in here a Calculus wiz?
What are you looking at?
