To make sure you get the most out of Instant Answers, we want to help you understand what it's for and how to use it. Follow our instructions to get the answers you need while also exercising academic honesty. When submitting questions to Instant Answers, please:
Don't use Instant Answers to do your homework (or write your essay) for you. We're here to help you study and understand concepts you're struggling with. We can answer your questions and direct you to lessons that you'll find useful, but you do not simply copy and paste the answers we give you.
Don't write one-word questions. Make sure you're giving our instructors enough detail and context so that they can answer your question accurately.
Don't put multiple questions in one submission. Each question should be submitted in its own ticket so we can deliver your questions to the correct subject matter experts.
Don't use Instant Answers in any way that violates the rules of your assignment, classroom, or academic institution. This would include plagiarizing or using outside help when you're instructed not to.
We all know that cheating is bad, and there are a lot of reasons not to cheat! Let's look at a few of them:
First, the person who is the most hurt when you cheat is you. Seriously! Cheating on your homework means that you won't learn the material, which will hurt you in your current class and in the future. Homework and essays are a great way to learn and think about the material, and cheating will only hurt you in the long run.
Second, all teachers and academic institutions take cheating seriously. If you're caught cheating on your homework or plagiarizing your answers or essay from another source, you will likely face serious consequences. In some cases, you might just receive a zero on the assignment, but in others, plagiarism can result in an automatic failure in your class, or maybe even an expulsion from your school depending on the academic honesty policy in place.
Third, now more than ever, it's really easy to get caught for cheating! Copying answers from a page on the internet might seem like a quick way to complete your homework, but it's just as easy for your teacher to find those exact phrases with a simple Google search. It's important for you to think about the information you're reading and phrase it in your own words, rather than simply copying from outside sources.
