Question:

What's the secret to solving writers block?

Cameron D.

Don't start out with the intro. That may sound counterintuitive but often the biggest barrier to writing is the difficulty involved in boiling one's ideas down into a clear and concise intro paragraph. Beginning is always the hardest part so just skip the introductions and start writing some of the body paragraphs.

Question:

What is the radius of a cone with a heigh of 2 and a volume of 6π?

Cameron D.

Even though we already know the volume of the cone we should start with the formula for cone volume and solve to find the radius. Here's the formula: V = πr^2(h/3) Now let's plug in the values we know. 6π = πr^2(2/3) First let's get rid of that tricky π value by dividing by it on both sides. π can be confusing, especially for young learners so it's best to get it out of the way early. 6π/ π = [πr^2(2/3)]/ π π over π is just 1 so it cancels out on both sides and we're left with: 6 = r^2(2/3) We want to solve for r so lets isolate it on one side of our equation my multiplying both sides by 3/2. Multiplying by 3/2 will cancel out the 2/3 on the right side of out equation. 6(3/2) = [r^2(2/3)] (3/2) 6 divided by 2 is 3 so we're left with 3 * 3 on the left side of our equation. On the right side of our equation we have 2* 3 in the numeration and 3 * 2 in the denominator. Here both the 3's and the 2's cancel each other out and we're left with 1. Therefore we're left with: 3 * 3 = r^2 We can also write the left side as 3^2 because 3^2 = 3 * 3. This will become important for simplifying the equation in the next step. So our equation is: 3^2 = r^2 Now, in order to solve for r we need to take the square root of both sides. √ (3^2 = r^2) Taking the square cancels out the fact that the factors are squared on either side. Therefore we're left with 3 = r And there's our answer. The radius = 3

Question:

What's the secret to getting an A on your next English essay?

Cameron D.

Analyze, analyze, analyze! The most common error I've found among high school students is that they'll provide only a line or two of superficial analysis after quoting from the text. Don't just include quotes to include them. Make sure you're thinking deeply about the text you're investigating and look to see how it operates on both a semantic and syntactic level.
