Is this forum only for highschool & college?

    I don't see any questions here geared towards grade school and junior high level students, so would it not be a good idea to refer this site for that age group?

    You certainly can post questions here for that age-group!

    Both are welcome. Keep in mind that our forum policy requires that anyone under the age of 13 have parental permission before signing up, and we strongly recommend that their parents supervise their children's activity on this forum. We moderate the forum with a PG-13 type audience in mind.

    Thank you, this is great news. Actually a friend of mine has kids and I want to invite them here. Thanks again!
    Canadians are welcome, correct? ;)

    Aren't we at our quota for Canuks? Seems to me that we rated Danger along as 50% of the quota... Well if you must :rofl:

    And I very much appreciate that honour. As you know, however, I tire easily these days. It would be nice to pass some of my responsibilities on.

    Americans are Yanks, Britons are Limeys, New Zealander's are Kiwis, Australians are Aussies. It seemed a little unfair that Candians were spared a nickname. Before I met her, I'd never even heard of the word "Canuck" and then I looked up the definition.
    With the short history lesson I got from her, I think if I value my life I will never utter the word. :blushing:

    Which section/topic/heading should this agegroup's questions be posted under since most of these topics involve highschool and more advanced math/science?

    Anything dealing with homework and school work should go to the Homework forum, most likely in the Intro physics section.

    Within the Homework forums -
    For physics questions: Introductory Physics
    For math: Precalculus Mathematics (it's meant to be anything before calculus, not the specific course called "precalculus")
    And, Other Sciences for any other science classes, or questions that don't fit easy classification of subject area.

    Make sure they read the instructions, especially about needing to show their own attempts at the work first. Since we have very few students that young, it might help if they mention their grade level in their first post or two so the homework helpers know to keep their help at an appropriate level.
