Rules for Homework & Coursework Questions Forum

Homework Help:

On Posting Questions:

Any and all high school and undergraduate homework assignments or textbook style exercises for which you are seeking assistance are to be posted only in our Homework & Coursework Questions area--not in blogs, visitor messages, PMs, or the main technical forums.

This should be done whether the problem is part of one's assigned coursework or just independent study. The reason for this is that the main sections of The UNIX and Linux Forums are to be reserved for work-related discussions and not academic assistance.

Since graduate level assignments are meant to be more thought provoking (and hence more worthy of discussion), graduate level questions will be allowed in the relevant part of the main section of The UNIX and Linux Forums, provided that the graduate student attempts the problem and shows his work.

  1. You MUST show that you have attempted to answer your question in order to receive help.
  2. You MUST make use of the homework template, which automatically appears when a new topic is created in the homework help forums.

References. You Must Reference Any Help You Receive From Here:

Students must reference the The UNIX and Linux Forums as one of their sources of help if they make use of information obtained through the forum. In other words, if you get any help from our forums then you should acknowledge that fact when you write up your report and provide the URL to the thread.

We Do Not Support Cheating in Any Form:

Do not ask for solution manuals, answers to exams, or instructor's manuals. Every school and instructor has their own policies or honor codes on what constitutes cheating, and it is up to the individual student to adhere to those policies when seeking help here. If you are in doubt as to whether you are permitted to seek help, consider erring on the side of caution and not asking for help.

Any and all assistance given to homework assignments or textbook style exercises should be given only after the questioner has shown some effort in solving the problem. If no attempt is made then the questioner should be asked to provide one before any assistance is given. Under no circumstances should complete solutions be provided to a questioner, whether or not an attempt has been made.

Required Format and Template for Homework & Coursework Questions:

The template below will be provided automatically when you create a new thread in the Homework & Classwork Forum. You must complete this template. If you don't, your post may be closed or deleted.

Use and complete the template provided. If you don't, your post may be deleted!

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data:

2. Relevant commands, code, scripts, algorithms:

3. The attempts at a solution (include all code and scripts):

4. Complete Name of School (University), City (State), Country, Name of Professor, and Course Number (Link to Course)

Contract Cheating:

Never contact any member of The UNIX and Linux Forums with any paid offer to do any homework or coursework for you. Contract cheating is strictly forbidden here. Anyone who attempts to engage in any form of contract cheating here will be banned from this site. In addition, your login information and activity may by provided to your school, if requested. Do not even think about it.

Standard Forum Rules:

All standard forum rules apply to questions in the Homework & Coursework Questions forum. Make sure you are familiar with the standard forum rules and well as the special rules for students.

Please Note: Posting homework or coursework without trying to complete school/city/country/professor/course information, you may be banned!
