Answer:

I found out about Socratic as a result of watching Tyler DeWitt's chemistry videos online. :)

Explanation:

Since I was having a hard time with Chem this year, I really needed help and I found Tyler's videos online, which were SUPER helpful. He had made a video about a new website Vespr.org. Well, when I checked it out, the name had changed to Socratic and I am so thankful that I found such a supportive and helpful website! :)

Answer:

Facebook

Explanation:

I ran into an ad on Facebook where maths answers were being looked for. It wasn't until I entered the website that I found the scope of subjects was far broader than simply math.

I was searching online for website where I can find some teachers to help me. But all of them were asking me for money. I didn't trust the sites and I didn't want to give my credit card info to them. So I decided to look for a better solutions.

I was struggling with Physics and Chemistry, then I googled one of my questions and I saw the answer on Socratic. I was impressed with the high quality answer. I was able to understand how to solve the problem. The big news was that is was FREE.

In conclusion, I found Socratic just by doing some researches. I found it at the right time, when I needed help the most!

Answer:

Facebook.

Explanation:

I came across an AD on Facebook saying 'answer questions on physics and be someone's hero' or something similar.

Went to check the website.

https://socratic.org/questions/what-is-the-difference-between-physical-optics-and-geometric-optics

That was my first time the I wrote an answer on this website. (Recently updated it though)

Answer:

Biology research.

Explanation:

I was doing research for a biology paper, and found myself on Socratic, looking at someone's contribution. Suddenly, I saw a question pull up on the side and I thought, "Hey! I could answer that!" So I made an account to answer it, and quickly was pulled in to the thought of helping people around the world. So I've kept it up by answering questions, and still enjoy it immensely!

Answer:

Searching the web

Explanation:

Like Mr. Doc said, I was looking for an answer to a question I had, and I found this website. I love to help people and to answer question, so I looked around, trying to get a better feel for the site and then I came across a different question I had, and it was answered! I scrolled around more, and came across a question that I knew the answer to, and decided to sign up! This is the way that many people find the site.

Answer:

Same as u did.

Explanation:

Well I was searching for an answer so I typed the question and searched it on Google
The first result it came up was the exact answer and the answer was from one of the heroes Ernst Z.

After that I just started browsing the site and found a question to which I knew the answer.

I typed the complete answer and then when I clicked post answer it asked me to login or sign up.

Well then I signed up and from then I conversed and read all the necessary details, thanks to Stefen V. Sir for the guidance he gave and Ernst Z. Sir for indirectly bringing me to the site.

Well cheers to great teaching everyone.

This was my way. Curious to know about others (esp. Heroes) . 😋

Answer:

I was procrastinating on my homework.

Explanation:

I found Socratic when I didn't feel like doing my homework. I was typing random letters in Google when I randomly found a question that someone had asked on Socratic. It looked easy so I clicked on Socratic and answered the question and made an account.

Ironically enough, now, Socratic has become a place where I can ask questions and learn from other people's questions so it has sort of helped me work more efficiently on homework. The streak system has also helped me to procrastinate less on homework so I can get to writing answers for those who may need help.
