Does your child have too much homework? Not enough? The wrong kind? And how are you supposed to help without just taking it and doing it yourself? Join About.com parenting experts Terri Mauro (Parenting Special Needs), Catherine Holecko (Family Fitness), Katherine Lee (School-Age Children) and Amanda Morin (Kids' Learning Activities) as we talk about the dreaded homework monster and what you can do about it.
School homework we all had to do it when we were young. But with every new generation comes a new debate. The debate now is whether or not kids should have homework. Some studies say homework does not improve learning while others say it does. Some parents say kids have way too much school homework and can not possibly get it all done. In today's fast paced society, with busy parents and busy students, should school homework be banned? Does homework help prepare our children to learn more in school? Does doing homework help improve retention? What about online homework help, should it be banned too? Whether you live in Atlanta or the surrounding area your voice matters. Tune in where you will hear the comments of parents,students, educators and YOU.
For many parents homework is the bane of their existence. The constant battles to get it done, the struggles with the school, the uncertainty about your child's success. It can be crazy-making! This week's guest, Roger Wilkerson of Homework Sanity, will give you valuable tools for partnering with your child to achieve greater harmony. He'll also take your questions via email during the show. Email him your questions to email@example.com and he'll send you a Free PDF of his new book "The Homework Sanity System."
Relationships are at the center of our universe. Everything is all about relationships. They are essential for our having effective and fulfilling lives at work and at home. The Relationship HomeWork radio show is about bringing relationship coaching to the people. Through our conversations we work with our listeners to build relationship consciousness and competence to build, maintain and transform relationships in their Workplace and their HomeSpace.
Build and refine your relationship skills by listening to Relationship HomeWork.
Linear Equations, Graphs of Sine and Cosine functions, Graphs of Tangent and Cotangent functions. Discuss the amplitude, period, and phase shift of sine and cosine functions in order to graph them. Also, reviewed the characteristics of tangent and cotangent graphs.

Erin Smilkstein, MA.Ed., has been an educational therapist for over 10 years. While her primary passion is math education, she has been teaching literacy remediation for the last 12 years, and she designs learning programs that are both motivating and effective.
Early in her career, she taught mathematics to Gifted and At-Risk students in Long Beach, where she also served as the Mathematics Department Head of Stanford Middle School for several years. In 2000, she trained to be an educational therapist at The Kelter Center in Los Angeles, where she became the Literacy and Mathematics Programs Coordinator and Mentor. In addition to her continued work with students, Erin has been a guest lecturer for the Education Department of Loyola Marymount University and designed educational games for early reading and math skills. FableVision, a multi-media educational company contracted her to create a series of math computer games for Ah-ha! Math© based in Portland, Oregon. The software is currently available and being used in K-5 classrooms and was part of the Readers Choice Top 100 Products Award for 2007-2008.
Keywords: matrix, determinate, Cramer's rule, and an augmented matrix
Key Concepts: augmented matrix, matrix and matrix row operations, dependent and inconsistent systems, second-order and third-order determinants, and Cramer's rule.
We will determine if a linear system or graph of a linear system is inconsistent or inconsistent, and if consistent systems are they dependent or independent; use the Gauss-Jordan elimination method to solve a system of linear equations in and two and three variables; define an augmented matrix; perform matrix and matrix row operations, evaluation second-order and third-order determinants; and use Cramer's rule to solve systems of equation in both two and three variables.

Homework can breed stress for the entire family. Does your child dread getting started on homework? Are you experiencing breakdowns in your relationship with your child because of homework issues? Are you done with homework drama? Tune in to hear pointers on how to help your child tackle homework with a healthy attitude and keep the family calm.
Glitches in relationships are normal. If you are having issues at home, at work, or at play, listen as Dr. Joan describes alternative solutions. People like you run into the same dilemmas. Follow Dr. Joan as she guides you toward keys for harmony.
A portion of each program is devoted to the reading of Dr. Joan's published stories about human disputes. She is currently reading from her first novel Gra Im Thu! I Love You! The story is about two Irish families who find themselves intermarrying, even though they are poles apart in the areas of religion and politics. Tune in and listen to the story, as the O'Grady and Gwynn families learn to solve their potato encounters and develop a sure-fire method for making delicious mashed potatoes together. Find out how diversity and harmony can live in the same house!
Keywords: systems of equations, systems of inequalities, graphing method for solving systems of equations, substitution method for solving systems of equations, addition method for solving systems of equations, linear combinations, consistent system of linear equations, and inconsistent system of linear equations.
We will verify the solution of a system of linear equations in two and three variables; use the substitution and addition methods to solve a system of equations in two and three variables, determine if a linear system or graph of a linear system is consistent or inconsistent, and if consistent systems are dependent or independent, and finally, solve a system of inequalities graphically.
