Many of the elements of mathematics are confusing to students in American schools K-12 and colleges. luckily, there are a number of homework hotlines available by phone and on the Internet to help them.  lately, students have been posting their problems on HubPages in order to gain answers to their homework problems and some afternoons, the HubPages Requests feature is full of word problems.  

Seversal people that are writers on HubPages affer helpful hints and even work the mathematics problems for students p[osting their word problems and algebra expressions. Sometimes, this is not very helpful, becuase 6 different writers will offer 6 different answers. Which is correct?

It all reminds me of solving cooking word problems in school – “A turkey takes so many minutes per pound and weighs 16 pounds, etc.”  That should be pretty simply a case for multiplication, but no one in the class scored correctly on that question, evernm though the multiplication was correct. I think it kept some young people from ever going in the kitchen again!  

For your Homework Help, try HubPages. You might like to ask some othe rquestions of your own!
