Writing in the Real World / Solving a Problem Read Appendix B, “Solving Problems.” PROBLEM: You have learned of a cheating ring at school that uses cell phones to give test answers to students taking the test. A few students in your math class, who are also friends of yours, think this is a great idea and are planning to cheat on a test you will be taking next week. You decide not to participate, partly because you fear getting caught, but also because you think cheating is wrong. Now you want to convince your friends not to cheat, because you don’t want them to get caught and possibly kicked out of school. How do you make your case? ASSIGNMENT: Working in a group or on your own, list the various effects of cheating — both immediate and long-term — that you could use to convince your friends. Then, write a cause /effect paragraph or essay that identifies and explains some possible effects of cheating. You might start with this sentence: Cheating on tests or papers is not worth the risks.
