    Why is my math lecture so cold? I understand putting on the A/C as it's nearly 90 here but not make it an ice box

    Same here :-( Since i tend to write essays, it's problem - and i can't see what auto correct makes out of it. Started writing longer posts with the notes app and copy it into the fb app.

    i am supposed to write an essay about my accomplishments for scholarship consideration... my mind has literally gone blank and i hate talking about myself. it has also been drilled into my mind that you shouldn't write in the first person, so it's painful for me to actually write like this. ugh.

    All my fellow college/high schoolers if you have a paper to write, EssayTyper will write your essay for you if given a topic. Just tried it on cheerleading ;) all you do when you open the document up, is click any key on the keyboard and watch the magic begin. Completely free.

    But it uses wikipedia and if your professor uses any type of plagiarism checking software you'll get busted. All my professors do - and people are always surprised when they get caught. They don't even have to use the software (although it's faster) - google will search it too.

    Also, if anyone else in your class uses it and you are doing the same topic ever, you'll both have the same paper.

    I'm going to go ahead and say this is a bad idea (from a standpoint of a fellow student because you can get in trouble, and as a mom because it's actually just cheating). . :( :( :(

    Hey my school bought all the AP Students iPads, along with the two other schools (at one school everyone has them) and then when all the schools finally have them set up, they discover that our wifi can't support all that.... We can't connect at all. As if they didn't know how many people would need to use it??? If you bring it up to the media specialists you get completely shut down, but your teachers all still expect you to be using it and continue to give us assignments using our iPads. This has been going on for two weeks.... Beyond annoying. Like I love that we got iPads but now our teachers get mad if we can't use them but the media specialists get mad if we ask for help

    It will take more time and effort, but I find it is so much easier to write the essay on how I would like others to see me as a person what they think I have accomplished and then go back and edit into the first person. Or if there is some creativity allowed state at the beginning of your essay you are taking the approach of how you would hope others see you as a person. Good luck!

    As always J-A-M is right. I have also been told there is a program where you can see what has been copied and pasted into a document. No clue if there is any truth to that but I wouldnt want to chance it.

    When I was in grad school, they submitted your paper on the program and it did a web search. It would give you a percentage of your paper that was copied. Obviously if you quoted research or something, that would count, but it would highlight it and you could make sure the copied area was cited properly. If more than 15% was "copied" even if it was research and cited, you could not submit it.

    Was it turnitin.com? I remember using that in high school and it seems like a similar concept.
