What happened to book report app?

Writing

September 25, 2014

Question

Our 3 classes of 5th graders have been using the link for the non-fiction book report template for a few years now. We have noticed that your page now says that link is not available. Is it just down temporarily, or have you removed it permanently from your site? We would like to know so we can use an alternative if necessary. Thanks!

Carolyn - USA (25399)

Answer

I recently received an email from a mother who said her daughter lost the whole book report she had written on the template app. Thus, I temporarily removed the files to try to make them more fail-safe.

I restored the template but am also working on making sure students don't lose their work.

If you've experienced any problems with the app, let me know.

Best wishes for your students' success in writing.

How do we learn?

Grades

September 23, 2014

Question

How we learn? I don't understand it.

Aliya - Ethiopia (25376)

Answer

There are many ways that you learn things. Often a parent, teacher or even friend will explain something that you can apply and remember. Doing what is taught is the best way to remember. But also, writing things down helps to remember and learn.

Sometimes, simply experimenting and trying something is a way to learn.

In school, it is good to listen to what the teacher says, as well as to watch. Taking notes helps your understanding.

I hope this helps your understanding.

Should I join a local church?

Religion

September 20, 2014

Question

Mr.Ron Kurtus, I am Glad That Your Advice About Trusting In God Really Helped Me. However ,a Very Intriguing Question Is Boiling My Head Off Me "will Joining An Established Religion Really Help Me In My Spiritual Journey?? Because I Really Want To Join A Local Church??

Please Respond As Soon As Possible

Thank You

Peter - Kenya (25369)

Answer

Joining an established religion can help in your spiritual journey. Another benefit is that you can meet other like-minded people and feel like you belong to a community.

It is a good idea to visit several churches in your area to see if their beliefs are close to yours, as well as how friendly the people seem.

God bless you in your journey and in finding the right church to join.

Student lost her book report

Writing

September 19, 2014

Question

Hi: my daughter recently completed book report on your website. She got to the point of saying she was "finally finished" and then all of her work vanished! She was really upset. Was it going on with your website? Can she get her work back??

Thanks for your time.

Peter - USA (25368)

Answer

I'm very sorry that your daughter spent time on the book report application and then lost her work. I included several notes that state the app is to be used to just get started. I also have instructions that the person should copy and paste the finished draft to a word processor to complete the task. I've bold-faced those warnings.

At the very least, she organized her thoughts and hopefully was able to write the report.

Again, I apologize. It is supposed to be a helpful way to get started and not a tool for a complete report.

If there are such problems, I may just remove the tool.

I want full periodic table diagram

Chemistry

September 18, 2014

Question

I want full periodic table diagram with number and name of elements

Akinropo - Nigeria (25365)

Answer

You can use the table in the Periodic Table lesson. By clicking on an element abbreviation, it will show its full name, number, and other facts.

Chemical Elements lists the elements with name and number.

A Periodic Table diagram with the full name of the element is too big to display here.

Why are TV screens dusty after a while?

Physics

September 17, 2014

Question

why are TV screens dusty after a while?

mahamed - Tanzania (25361)

Answer

When the electrons from inside the TV screen hit the surface, they collect charges on the screen. Those charges will attract dust particles and cause them to stick. The newer LCD or flat panel screens do not have that much of a problem.

Acceleration and speed

Physics

September 17, 2014

Question

1.If a car traveling at 25 m/s speeds up to 40 m/s over a period of 15 seconds what is the average acceleration?
2.An airplane that moves 50 meters in one second has a speed of, what?
3. rider finishes a 120-km bicycle trip in 3 hours. The average speed of the rider is, what?
I am having trouble with these, can you please help me out?

Rashana - USA (25363)

Answer

Acceleration is change in speed divided by time. Thus: (40 m/s - 25 m/s)/15 s equals 15/15 = 1 m/s^2

50 m / 1 s = a speed of 50 m/s

Since distance = speed * time, speed = distance/time. Thus 120 km/3 hr = 40 km/hr

Flash

September 16, 2014

Question

Every image in the layer is called scene
Is this statement true or false according to macromedia flash

The answer is false.
