Howdy! Welcome to Aspire Mountain Academy. I am Professor Curtis, your instructor for Stat 101. And as I promised in the last video, we were going to show you how to look for a specific Homework Help video. In the last video we looked at different resources that we have that are free and available to everyone to help them with their statistics courses. And now we're going to look at how do you find a specific homework help video. There's two ways to do that. You can go through the website, or you can go through the YouTube channel.
Let's take a look first at the website. If I pull up my browser here, and I'm gonna go to aspiremountainacademy.com. So here we are at Aspire Mountain Academy. And if I go to Courses and then scroll down here, click on the statistics course, and now you see here I've got two different links here --- one for Homework Help and one for Problem Index. If you're looking for a specific problem, the first place you want to go to is the Problem Index.
So here I'm going to scroll down. And look, you've got this table here that shows you all the problems, and they're organized by problem ID number. The problem ID number is located in the top left corner of your assignment window. If I go here, click on this first one, the problem ID number was 1.1.30, and look here. Here in the video, see up here at the top left corner of that homework window there in your assignment, 1.1.30. So if you're looking for a specific homework problem, a quick way to do that is just come here to the website and use the list there.
Now some students, they actually prefer to just stay in YouTube, because you can see these videos here are connected to YouTube. So let's go to YouTube, and I'll show you how to find a specific Homework Help video.
OK, so let's look for that same homework problem that we we're looking at just now in the blog. So if I type in "aspire mountain academy" and then I type in that problem ID number "1.1.30", notice what comes up here. You've got this guy --- I don't know who he is, but he's got a playlist, and he calls it "Aspire Mountain Academy". And because of that, he's getting all the traffic from the work that I'm doing. So I'm doing my work here. All he's doing is taking my work and putting it into a different package and he, because you know it comes up first here in the list of search results, people are clicking on it. And we don't want to be supporting people who aren't doing the actual work. So let's not give this guy any more of the traffic that rightfully belongs to Aspire Mountain Academy.
So I'm going to click here on the channel. Actually I probably could've just clicked on that actual link there. But here in the channel I can also search for a video if I just go to this search field and type in that problem ID number. Well, ah, here it is --- the actual video. And you can click on it and watch it. And that's pretty much the way it goes. You could also find that same video if I were to go to a playlist. So that was Section 1.1, so if I scroll down looking for --- yep, here's Homework Help videos for section 1.1. So if I go to the full playlist, so far we've only got two problems from that first section. But again, it's not a section that we get a lot of requests for doing videos for.
If you are looking for a specific homework problem, and you don't find it here on the site, you can request it. And there's different ways to do that. You can --- if you're in the blog you can just put a comment on the blog. A lot of students that are using YouTube, they'll just post it in a comment to whatever video they were watching. The other place you can do it is in the discussion forum. So if I go back to the channel page and come up here to Discussion, there's nothing posted here yet, but this is another great place for you to request a video.
And remember when you're requesting your video, don't just type in the words from the problem, because there's literally hundreds of statistics problems that are there in your course in MyMathLab. So it's really hard for us to figure out where that problem is if you just type in the words from the problem statement. It's a lot easier for us to find it if you use that problem ID number. So request a problem that you want to see worked out with the problem ID number. And we actually honor those requests. We'll make a video, post it up here on the site, and get back to you.
So that's pretty much how you look for a specific Homework Help video with the resources that we have at Aspire Mountain Academy. We hope you found this video helpful. You could find more videos for this and other courses at aspiremountainacademy.com. Thanks for watching! And we'll see you in the next video.
Frustrated with a particular MyStatLab/MyMathLab homework problem? No worries! I'm Professor Curtis, and I'm here to help.
