Learner Code of Conduct

Platform Etiquette

  1. Be Respectful: Always treat your peers and tutors with respect. Although homework can be frustrating, keep in mind that fellow learners and tutors are doing their best to help you, so remember to be polite and patient with them.
  2. Appropriate Language and Behaviour: Remember to use respectful language when speaking to other users. Profanities, offensive language, and rude behaviour are not tolerated on the platform.
  3. Be patient: Be patient and give others time to help you with your questions, especially if you’re working on a really tough problem.
  4. Provide Context: Explain your question as best you can and be specific. Your peers don’t have access to your course material, so make sure to send them all the information about the question you’re working on.
  5. Focus on Schoolwork: Avoid chatting about non-academic things. The platform is dedicated to helping students, so be sure to only ask them about your school work.

Internet Safety

  1. Don’t share personal information: For privacy reasons, please do not share personal information. Tutors  and peers do not need any personal information to give you the help you need.
  2. No personal images/videos: For privacy purposes, we do not allow you to share images or videos of yourself, even if it relates to schoolwork. For example: If you’re working on a presentation, a tutor/peer can review your script but not watch a video of you presenting.

Academic Integrity

  1. Tutors/Peers don’t give answers: Tutors/Peers take learning seriously, which means they’re not going to simply give you the answer. Instead, they’ll help you find the answer yourself. Tutors/Peers can report students that repeatedly ask for answers to make sure the platform is being used appropriately.
  2. Plagiarism: Any work submitted to MathsGee will be checked for plagiarism by the tutor/peer reviewing it. If they notice something is plagiarized, they’ll give you a chance to remove plagiarised content before submitting your work to your teacher. Ongoing issues with plagiarism will be reported to your school.
