Is it cheating if I get help with my homework?

Homework ? No..as long as the "help" doesn't help you entirely, and you really understood what "the help" said.

No I wouldn't think so it is okay to ask for help it is only consider cheating if you look at the answer key.

I wouldn't consider that cheating. If they're giving you answers to copy,yes.

As long as its help and not people handing you the answers. Not that I'd EVER expect that from you.

No. It's only cheating if they just give you the answers rather than helping you figure out the problem

There's "help" as in some one showing you how to do something, that's fine. Then there's "HELP" as in some one letting you copy their homework, that's not fine.

asking people on Ask.com if it's OK to cheat is like asking an alcoholic if it's OK to drink

Here's the thing- the purpose of homework is NOT to get the answer, it's to learn HOW to get the answer. Just asking someone else without actually trying to reason it out for yourself defeats the purpose of the activity.

I know that you may think homework is something you HAVE to do, but it is a tool you can use to see if you UNDERSTAND what you are learning. If you can't answer a homework question, all it means it that you have not learned the material yet.

If you don't know how to do a problem, ask yourself why: Did you not pay attention in class? Does the question not make sense? Do you have the right information to answer it?

The 'answer' is not the important part of homework (even if that is what you get graded on), the important part is HOW you got it. Most of the people here never even TRY to reason through their homework before just mindlessly posting 'What is the answer to...' All they are learning is how to use the computer, not how to use their brain
