# Will homework questions be allowed?

Since the current FAQs say this site is for students as well as professionals, what will the policy on homework be?

What are the guidelines that a homework question should follow if it is to be asked? I know on math.se they loosely require that the student make an attempt to solve the question and answers aren't a blatant solution as to give the student room to learn.

Since CS is based strongly on math and other areas of study, will we have the same requirements?

• Yes, except without the homework tag. That's a major source of friction which Stack Overflow is only now trying to shake. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Mar 6 '12 at 21:57
