What body systems are being used while doing your homework?
Pretty much all of them!
- Brain - thinking (what does the question mean, how do I find the answer to the question, actually finding that answer, putting the answer down, deciding if it's correct or not, fixing it if it's incorrect, etc.)
- Nerves - sending signals to the brain from the eyes, sending signals to the hands to do the work, feeling the hands working, sending more signals to look at the work and see if it is correct, sending signals to fix whatever needs correcting, etc.
- Moving the eyes to read the assignment and read over what you write
- Moving the hands to write or type, turning pages, moving the computer mouse and clicking on things
- Blinking and focusing the eyes so you can read
- Moving the arms if needed, so the hands can move correctly; moving legs to keep them from going to sleep, shifting positions to keep your balance and stay alert, etc.
- Keeping your body running smoothly so you can concentrate on your work instead of trying to remember to breathe, pump blood, digest food, and get rid of waste
- Breathing in and out so you stay alive and alert
- Sending oxygen to the brain to keep you alert and focused and learning
- Getting rid of excess carbon dioxide so your brain stays alert and focused
- Pumping blood so you stay alive
- pumping blood to your brain to keep you focused and alert and learning
- Sending nutrition to the brain to keep you alert and focused and learning
- Keeping you upright so you can read the material and not fall over
- Helping the muscles move your arms and eyes and body
- Protecting the brain so you can think

I don't, though many do. I do not know the percentage of people who watch TV whilst doing homework but I am sure it is quite high. I used to watch TV whilst doing homewor…k but that was because there was no where else where I could sit down apart from the dining room table. Eventually we got a desk in a different room and within seconds I was using it and I didn't have to watch TV at the same time. It is difficult and is a time-waster as well as a distraction. Tip: DON'T DO IT! I don't know how many kids watch t.v. while doing their homework but about 23% of kids watch t.v. instead of doing their homework.
Best advice: do your homework, and you don't have to worry about hiding the fact that you didn't do it. Instead of putting your efforts into not doing your homework, you could… put your efforts into actually doing it. It's much better for you in the long run. Homework may be tedious at times, but hey, that's life.
No. Some people want to know other stuff for jobs and parties and etc. People use this knowledge for work - Im scared !!!!????
Hopefully some cognitive function is active, typing and using the internet are less important than comprehension, memory and original thinking.
This is done by passing the /S parameter to FORMAT. It can also be done to any previously formatted disk by running SYS [driveletter]:
You don't "get out of" doing your work -- you can decide to take the bad grade, maybe to fail for the year, but you don't get out of doing it. There is no way to "get out" of …doing it. If you are willing to take the bad grade and maybe stay in the same class for years, just don't do it.
you are discusting what are you doing doing drugs while pregnant that kid is going to be so messed up when it is born. Burn in hell OMG Whoever wrote this!!!! Jugmental and ig…norant! Drink water and cranberry juice! Seriously- Drs can have a skewed point of view too! I was advised that it is ok to continue smoking cigs, I can take robotussin DM and vicodin...but picking "herbs" from the garden-forbidden?? Makes no sense!

If your homework involves reading something, then the answer is usually no. A widely accepted study (Salame & Baddeley, '89) shows that the performance of working memory on a …word recall task is worse when listening to music than in a silent setting. Listening to lyrical music is correlated with worse performance than listening to instrumental music. A caveat. If you're studying in a noisy setting (and especially if you're not very good at filtering out irrelevant speech/noise), then listening to music over headphones can benefit your ability to concentrate by blocking out distracting sounds. However, the above study results still apply, so there is both a benefit and cost to studying with headphones on. If your homework is to write something, then I'm not sure whether listening to music will help you concentrate. This study says no, but there are many others who say yes. When we learnt about Salame & Baddeley in PSY372 (human memory), a fellow student asked whether listening to music would negatively effect one's ability to solve mathematical problems. The prof answered probably not, basically because the ability to do mathematics is a procedural skill (the prof hadn't read any studies supporting that claim, although it does seem reasonable). However, I have no idea whether listening to music while doing math actually benefits concentration, as some of my friends believe. I do know that listening to music while reading a math textbook negatively effects subsequent recall. If your homework is to draw, paint, or create something artistic then my intuition says that listening to (good) music will help you concentrate. Just one more (slightly tangential) thing: the Mozart effect is a myth. Best of luck in your studies. Listen to music wisely.

Stress can stop you from doing anything -- if you let yourself get too stressed, your mind is overwhelmed and you feel so helpless that you can't do anything. Sometimes if… you don't know how to handle it, it may cause you to "burn out". Here are some good tips for Stressed Students: Breathe! It is physically impossible to panic while you are taking deep breaths. Try it and see -- you have to really be doing the deep breaths! Do a little bit. If you have a big chore ahead of you, chop it up into little ones. Do just one class assignment, then take a break and go walk around, or go talk to your parents about how stressed you are - don't take such a long break that you end up staying up all night working, though! Reward yourself. Set up something with your parents -- if you do a certain amount of study work, they'll let you do a certain amount of something you like to do, or will help you put some money aside to buy an item you want once you get your grades for the term. Drop the standards! This is the big one for lots of students -- you do not have to do 100% all the time. The definition of a "C" grade is average, or normal -- this is the grade most kids will get, and it's fine if you're doing your best effort. A "B" is above average, and an "A" is perfect. If you're getting B's and C's, you are doing above average work, which is fine.
Anything can interrupt you! Here are some of the most common distractions while studying: Cellphones - even the little alerts for text or email can distract you! TV… Internet - just having it on in the background is too tempting! Music - studies show that only soft, instrumental music can help you focus People talking Anything going on in the background
Take it slow and start with the hard homework first. If you are getting frustrated than ask an adult for help or do a different piece of homework. This way when you come back …to that sheet of homework you will be able to look at it with fresh eyes.
Yes. Don't you want to grow up big and smart? Don't you want to be able to hang out with friends at recess instead of detention? Cool people always do their homework.
Your homework may not be a subject that you are interested in, which means you would have to consentrate harder not to be distracted. You could be in a loud enviroment wit…h people doing things you would like to be doing, in which case you might need to select a quieter and less active place to study. Here are some things you can do to get rid of distractions: Turn OFF the cellphone - even the little alerts that let you know you got a text or email are distracting! Turn OFF the internet - just having it on in the background is too tempting! Turn OFF the TV and the video games Switch the music to soft, instrumental songs that studies show can actually help you to focus Find a quiet place to study without a lot of talking or stuff going on in the background Have all of your materials before you get started so you don't have to keep getting up and looking for stuff Get enough sleep - kids and teens usually need 10 hours a night, and if you're tired, you get distracted more easily!
You must avoid all excuses not to do your homework by referring to the textbook
