What is a mountain?

A mountain is something that’s part of the land, but that rises above everything else. Mountains can join up with other mountains to make up a range .

Mountains are very rocky and difficult to grow things on. Also, the higher the mountain goes up, the colder it gets – this means different kinds of plants and animals might live at the top of a mountain than at the bottom, depending on just how high it is.

Top 10 facts

  • Most mountains are formed when things happen inside the Earth to push rocks up – the longer this happens, the higher the rocks are pushed, and the higher the mountains can be.
  • While some mountains are getting taller, you can’t see them grow. It takes a very, very long time for mountains to form.
  • The top of a mountain is called the summit .
  • It means two different things to say how high a mountain is and how tall it is – measure from sea level to summit to find out how high a mountain is, and measure base to summit to find out how tall it is.
  • Some very tall mountains aren’t very high because a lot of the base is under the ocean. Some mountains are even completely underwater!
  • The highest mountain in the world is Mount Everest in Nepal – it’s 8,850 metres high!
  • The tallest mountain in the world is Mauna Kea in Hawaii, USA  – its base is below sea level, and when you measure from base to summit it’s over 10,000 meters tall.
  • The highest mountain in the UK is Ben Nevis in Scotland  – it’s 1,344 metres high.
  • There are five different types of mountains – fold , fault-block , dome , volcanic and plateau .
  • Living on mountains is difficult because air gets thinner and colder the higher you go up. Different species of plants and animals can be found at different heights because they’ve had to adapt to the special conditions.

Did you know?

  • The top of a mountain is called the summit , and the bottom is called the base .
  • Mountins are built by the same forces that cause earthquakes .
  • Some mountains get a little bit higher every year, and some even get a little bit shorter. In time all mountains fade, worn away where the rocks are exposed to the weather. New mountains are formed by the constant movements of the Earth's crust.
  • A group of mountains is called a mountain range.
  • The highest mountain range in the world is the Himalayas in Asia.
  • The longest mountain range in the world is the Andes in South America.
  • Weather changes a lot on mountains. For example, it can be raining at the top but not at the bottom!
  • Some of the most common plants you can find on mountains are conifers (a type of evergreen tree).

  • Mountains in Scotland

mountains homework help

Mountains are formed when huge areas of land hit each other. The surface of Earth is made up of lots of different sections called tectonic plates, and mountains can be formed in different ways when these plates collide or when magma can get from the centre of the earth up to the surface. There are five types of mountains :

  • Fold (or, Folded)
  • This is the most common type of mountain. It’s called ‘fold’ because when the tectonic plates collide, the edges crumple as they are pushed together  and the rock of the Earth’s surface is pushed up to create mountains. The Himalayas are fold mountains.
  • Fault-block (or, Block)
  • When cracks in the Earth’s surface open up, large chucks of rock can be pushed up while others are pushed down. This creates mountains with a long slope on one side, and a sharp drop on the other. The Sierra Nevada mountains in California, USA are fault-block mountains.
  • Dome mountains are smooth and round-looking. They are formed when magma from in between the Earth’s crust and mantle gets pushed up, but doesn’t ever flow out – so, all the magma makes the land bubble up like a balloon. Bear Butte in South Dakota, USA is an example of a dome mountain.
  • Volcanic mountains are formed around volcanoes, which are vents in the Earth’s top layer that let through magma from between the crust and the mantle layers. Mountains are made of ash and cooled lava. Mauna Loa in Hawaii, USA is the largest active volcano in the world.
  • Plateau mountains are different from the other mountain types because they haven’t formed because of rock or magma being pushed up. Instead, they’ve formed because of materials being taken away through erosion, which has left deep valleys or gorges next to high cliffs. The Columbia Plateau in the Northwest USA is an example of this type of mountain.

Mountain habitats have a lot of variety. Because mountains are mostly rock, there isn’t much soil for growing things and the trees plants that do grow there are able to thrive in the rocky conditions. You can also find different plants and animals the higher you climb up a mountain, because temperatures get cooler. This also means that there is more rain at the top of a mountain than at the bottom. This is because hot air rises, but as it rises it cools down – as it cools down, it loses moisture and has to drop it off somewhere along the way up. If it’s cold enough, this moisture will fall as snow rather than rain. You can tell just how cold it is at the top of a mountain by looking at how much snow you can see at the summit. Some mountains are so high that it’s too cold for anything to grow at the top, and there is less oxygen at very high altitudes. Often all the trees stop at about the same altitude and the mountain is bare above that apart from scrub and grass – this altitude is called the tree line. With conditions like that, living on mountains can be very challenging for both animals and people. Animals that live on mountains are used to the cold temperatures and the different types of plants that grow there. These are some of the animals that live on mountains:

  • Snow leopard
  • Bighorn sheep
  • Mountain hare
  • Great grey owl
  • Golden eagle

The highest mountains in each continent are:

  • Europe – Mount Elbrus (Russia)
  • Asia – Mount Everest (Nepal)
  • Australia – Mount Kosciuszko
  • Antarctica – Vinson Massif
  • South America – Aconcagua (Argentina)
  • North America – Mount McKinley (United States of America)
  • Africa – Kilimanjaro (Tanzania)

Some f amous mountain ranges around the world are:

  • The Himalayas, Asia
  • The Rocky Mountains, North America
  • The Andes, South America
  • The Ural Mountains, Europe
  • The Alps, Europe
  • The Pyrenees, Europe

The highest mountains in the countries of the UK are:

  • Ben Nevis in Scotland (which is also the highest in all of the UK)
  • Mount Snowdon in Wales
  • Scafell Pike in England
  • Slieve Donard in Northern Ireland

Mountain words to know

Altitude – a measurement of distance, going up Erosion – when wind or water sweeps away rock or soil from one place on the Earth’s surface to another Gorge – a narrow valley, usually with a stream or river running through it Mountain range – a group of mountains that form a chain or cluster Slope – the slanted side of a mountain Summit – the highest point on a mount Tectonic plates – large pieces of rock that make up the Earth’s surface Valley – low ground in between mountains

Learn About the Rockies: Rocky Mountains Homework Guide

Learn About the Rockies: Rocky Mountains Homework Guide

It took many enduring, extraordinary events to form the Rocky Mountains. At 3,000 miles (or 4,800 kilometers) long, the mountain range stretches from Alberta and British Columbia in Canada through the United States from Alaska to New Mexico. Often referred to as the “backbone” of North America, the treeless high peaks gave the Rockies its name.

Tumultuous Activities

If the Rockies had a birthday, you would need a million candles. They were formed when huge plates of land pushed together, folded over one another and created the foundations for the mountains. The Latin word tectonicus is the root of a scientific theory that states great landmarks were formed in the lithosphere—the upper crust and upper mantle of the Earth. This tectonic movement, coupled with convection currents under the earth’s mantle, broke up the earth from major activities such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and ocean trench formation along the boundaries of the plates.

Breaking It Down

It took millions of years of land shifting and being pushed high from stress and geologic impact, creating underground rock changes too, shaping them into tall mountains.

Glaciers, giant moving sheets of ice, also took part in this construction as they moved slowly over thousands of years, scraping, chiseling and wearing the rock away. When the glaciers melted, their sheer volume helped to structure beautiful lakes and moving water. The rocky ridges around them are called “moraines.”

Volcanoes had a hand in this mountain sculpture as well. Hot magna mixed with gases underneath earth’s surface seeks a way to break through the crevices on earth with molten lava, ash and pieces of debris. About 600,000 years ago volcanoes mostly in Montana and Wyoming did their deed.

Water also helped to form the Rockies. Large bodies of flowing water and even trickles from streams helped to erode the land away, leaving sediments of sand and clay to change and shift the foundations. Breathtaking canyons and steep narrow valleys are the result, and the Rocky Mountain Trench runs from the western side of the Rockies in Canada with the Yukon River and into the United States for about 900 miles (or 1,448 kilometers) to Flathead Lake in Montana.

A Range of Mountains Means a Range of Climates

Since the elevation—either a height above or below a marker like sea level—is so varied in this region, you will have snow-capped mountains such as Never Summer Mountain in Colorado, contrasting with the hot desert of New Mexico. The Rockies receive surprisingly little precipitation, as most of the water comes from melting snow. In addition, the tallest mountains break into clouds from the Pacific Ocean and that water moves inland, creating rain or snow.

Animal and Plant Life Abound

Because of the different elevations, climates and conditions, certain animals have chosen their homes according to their specific needs. For instance, mountain goats, which are more like goat-antelopes, often live above the timberline, or the highest point at which trees can grow. It only makes sense since goats are agile climbers with cloven hooves and rough padded feet, often white in color like snow with dazzling beards and coats. They generally live in small groups and feast on grasses and alpine, or uppermost, mountain vegetation.

Bears, deer, mountain lions, furry hares and squirrels live below the timberline. You will find beavers, otters, pikas—a type of hare or rock rabbit—and other water-loving animals who fish hemmed into the rocky slopes and their nearby streams. Of course, streams are home to trout, pike, salmon, bass and many more types of fish. Turtle, snakes and frogs always seem to navigate near lakes and streams, laying on a rock sunbathing or making home under fallen logs.

In the valleys are bison, elk, coyotes, raccoons, beavers, birds and owls. The slopes in the valleys can be covered with trees, wildflowers and field-type varieties of plant such as lilies, daisies and sunflowers.

Your Parks, National Landmarks

Every year, millions of people gravitate toward national parks to camp, hike, play and swim within the folds and topologic wonders of the Rockies. Government in both the United States and Canada established these parks as a place to preserve and protect the wildlife, flora and fauna and to enjoy the outdoors.

So whether you go to:

  • The highest peak in the Rockies, Mount Elbert in Colorado
  • Down Bighorn River which flows through Devil’s Canyon in Wyoming
  • To Montana’s Bighorn National Recreation Area
  • Yellowstone National Park in Montana, Wyoming and Idaho
  • Or over to visit with the other bathers in the Canadian Rockies at Banff National Park in Alberta

Other High School , General Education


Listen: we know homework isn’t fun, but it is a good way to reinforce the ideas and concepts you’ve learned in class. But what if you’re really struggling with your homework assignments? 

If you’ve looked online for a little extra help with your take-home assignments, you’ve probably stumbled across websites claiming to provide the homework help and answers students need to succeed . But can homework help sites really make a difference? And if so, which are the best homework help websites you can use? 

Below, we answer these questions and more about homework help websites–free and paid. We’ll go over: 

  • The basics of homework help websites 
  • The cost of homework help websites 
  • The five best homework websites out there 
  • The pros and cons of using these websites for homework help 
  • The line between “learning” and “cheating” when using online homework help 
  • Tips for getting the most out of a homework help website

So let’s get started! 


The Basics About Homework Help Websites–Free and Paid

Homework help websites are designed to help you complete your homework assignments, plain and simple. 

What Makes a Homework Help Site Worth Using

Most of the best sites allow users to ask questions and then provide an answer (or multiple possible answers) and explanation in seconds. In some instances, you can even send a photo of a particular assignment or problem instead of typing the whole thing out! 

Homework help sites also offer more than just help answering homework questions. Common services provided are Q&A with experts, educational videos, lectures, practice tests and quizzes, learning modules, math solving tools, and proofreading help. Homework help sites can also provide textbook solutions (i.e. answers to problems in tons of different textbooks your school might be using), one-on-one tutoring, and peer-to-peer platforms that allow you to discuss subjects you’re learning about with your fellow students. 

And best of all, nearly all of them offer their services 24/7, including tutoring! 

What You Should Should Look Out For

When it comes to homework help, there are lots–and we mean lots –of scam sites out there willing to prey on desperate students. Before you sign up for any service, make sure you read reviews to ensure you’re working with a legitimate company. 

A word to the wise: the more a company advertises help that veers into the territory of cheating, the more likely it is to be a scam. The best homework help websites are going to help you learn the concepts you’ll need to successfully complete your homework on your own. (We’ll go over the difference between “homework help” and “cheating” a little later!) 


You don't need a golden piggy bank to use homework help websites. Some provide low or no cost help for students like you!

How Expensive Are the Best Homework Help Websites?

First of all, just because a homework help site costs money doesn’t mean it’s a good service. Likewise, just because a homework help website is free doesn’t mean the help isn’t high quality. To find the best websites, you have to take a close look at the quality and types of information they provide! 

When it comes to paid homework help services, the prices vary pretty widely depending on the amount of services you want to subscribe to. Subscriptions can cost anywhere from $2 to $150 dollars per month, with the most expensive services offering several hours of one-on-one tutoring with a subject expert per month.

The 5 Best Homework Help Websites 

So, what is the best homework help website you can use? The answer is that it depends on what you need help with. 

The best homework help websites are the ones that are reliable and help you learn the material. They don’t just provide answers to homework questions–they actually help you learn the material. 

That’s why we’ve broken down our favorite websites into categories based on who they’re best for . For instance, the best website for people struggling with math might not work for someone who needs a little extra help with science, and vice versa. 

Keep reading to find the best homework help website for you! 

Best Free Homework Help Site: Khan Academy

  • Price: Free!
  • Best for: Practicing tough material 

Not only is Khan Academy free, but it’s full of information and can be personalized to suit your needs. When you set up your account , you choose which courses you need to study, and Khan Academy sets up a personal dashboard of instructional videos, practice exercises, and quizzes –with both correct and incorrect answer explanations–so you can learn at your own pace. 

As an added bonus, it covers more course topics than many other homework help sites, including several AP classes.

Runner Up: Brainly.com offers a free service that allows you to type in questions and get answers and explanations from experts. The downside is that you’re limited to two answers per question and have to watch ads. 

Best Paid Homework Help Site: Chegg

  • Price: $14.95 to $19.95 per month
  • Best for: 24/7 homework assistance  

This service has three main parts . The first is Chegg Study, which includes textbook solutions, Q&A with subject experts, flashcards, video explanations, a math solver, and writing help. The resources are thorough, and reviewers state that Chegg answers homework questions quickly and accurately no matter when you submit them.  

Chegg also offers textbook rentals for students who need access to textbooks outside of their classroom. Finally, Chegg offers Internship and Career Advice for students who are preparing to graduate and may need a little extra help with the transition out of high school. 

Another great feature Chegg provides is a selection of free articles geared towards helping with general life skills, like coping with stress and saving money. Chegg’s learning modules are comprehensive, and they feature solutions to the problems in tons of different textbooks in a wide variety of subjects. 

Runner Up: Bartleby offers basically the same services as Chegg for $14.99 per month. The reason it didn’t rank as the best is based on customer reviews that say user questions aren’t answered quite as quickly on this site as on Chegg. Otherwise, this is also a solid choice!


Best Site for Math Homework Help: Photomath

  • Price: Free (or $59.99 per year for premium services) 
  • Best for: Explaining solutions to math problems

This site allows you to t ake a picture of a math problem, and instantly pulls up a step-by-step solution, as well as a detailed explanation of the concept. Photomath also includes animated videos that break down mathematical concepts to help you better understand and remember them. 

The basic service is free, but for an additional fee you can get extra study tools and learn additional strategies for solving common math problems.

Runner Up: KhanAcademy offers in-depth tutorials that cover complex math topics for free, but you won’t get the same tailored help (and answers!) that Photomath offers. 

Best Site for English Homework Help: Princeton Review Academic Tutoring

  • Price: $40 to $153 per month, depending on how many hours of tutoring you want 
  • Best for: Comprehensive and personalized reading and writing help 

While sites like Grammarly and Sparknotes help you by either proofreading what you write via an algorithm or providing book summaries, Princeton Review’s tutors provide in-depth help with vocabulary, literature, essay writing and development, proofreading, and reading comprehension. And unlike other services, you’ll have the chance to work with a real person to get help. 

The best part is that you can get on-demand English (and ESL) tutoring from experts 24/7. That means you can get help whenever you need it, even if you’re pulling an all-nighter! 

This is by far the most expensive homework site on this list, so you’ll need to really think about what you need out of a homework help website before you commit. One added benefit is that the subscription covers over 80 other subjects, including AP classes, which can make it a good value if you need lots of help!  


Best Site for STEM Homework Help: Studypool

  • Best for: Science homework help
  • Price: Varies; you’ll pay for each question you submit

When it comes to science homework help, there aren’t a ton of great resources out there. The best of the bunch is Studypool, and while it has great reviews, there are some downsides as well. 

Let’s start with the good stuff. Studypool offers an interesting twist on the homework help formula. After you create a free account, you can submit your homework help questions, and tutors will submit bids to answer your questions. You’ll be able to select the tutor–and price point–that works for you, then you’ll pay to have your homework question answered. You can also pay a small fee to access notes, lectures, and other documents that top tutors have uploaded. 

The downside to Studypool is that the pricing is not transparent . There’s no way to plan for how much your homework help will cost, especially if you have lots of questions! Additionally, it’s not clear how tutors are selected, so you’ll need to be cautious when you choose who you’d like to answer your homework questions.  


What Are the Pros and Cons of Using Homework Help Sites?

Homework help websites can be a great resource if you’re struggling in a subject, or even if you just want to make sure that you’re really learning and understanding topics and ideas that you’re interested in. But, there are some possible drawbacks if you don’t use these sites responsibly. 

We’ll go over the good–and the not-so-good–aspects of getting online homework help below. 

3 Pros of Using Homework Help Websites 

First, let’s take a look at the benefits. 

#1: Better Grades Beyond Homework

This is a big one! Getting outside help with your studies can improve your understanding of concepts that you’re learning, which translates into better grades when you take tests or write essays. 

Remember: homework is designed to help reinforce the concepts you learned in class. If you just get easy answers without learning the material behind the problems, you may not have the tools you need to be successful on your class exams…or even standardized tests you’ll need to take for college. 

#2: Convenience

One of the main reasons that online homework help is appealing is because it’s flexible and convenient. You don’t have to go to a specific tutoring center while they’re open or stay after school to speak with your teacher. Instead, you can access helpful resources wherever you can access the internet, whenever you need them.

This is especially true if you tend to study at off hours because of your extracurriculars, work schedule, or family obligations. Sites that offer 24/7 tutoring can give you the extra help you need if you can’t access the free resources that are available at your school. 

#3: Variety

Not everyone learns the same way. Maybe you’re more of a visual learner, but your teacher mostly does lectures. Or maybe you learn best by listening and taking notes, but you’re expected to learn something just from reading the textbook . 

One of the best things about online homework help is that it comes in a variety of forms. The best homework help sites offer resources for all types of learners, including videos, practice activities, and even one-on-one discussions with real-life experts. 

This variety can also be a good thing if you just don’t really resonate with the way a concept is being explained (looking at you, math textbooks!).


Not so fast. There are cons to homework help websites, too. Get to know them below!

3 Cons of Using Homework Help Websites 

Now, let’s take a look at the drawbacks of online homework help. 

#1: Unreliable Info

This can be a real problem. In addition to all the really good homework help sites, there are a whole lot of disreputable or unreliable sites out there. The fact of the matter is that some homework help sites don’t necessarily hire people who are experts in the subjects they’re talking about. In those cases, you may not be getting the accurate, up-to-date, and thorough information you need.

Additionally, even the great sites may not be able to answer all of your homework questions. This is especially true if the site uses an algorithm or chatbot to help students…or if you’re enrolled in an advanced or college-level course. In these cases, working with your teacher or school-provided tutors are probably your best option. 

#2: No Clarification

This depends on the service you use, of course. But the majority of them provide free or low-cost help through pre-recorded videos. Watching videos or reading info online can definitely help you with your homework… but you can’t ask questions or get immediate feedback if you need it .

#3: Potential For Scamming 

Like we mentioned earlier, there are a lot of homework help websites out there, and lots of them are scams. The review comments we read covered everything from outdated or wrong information, to misleading claims about the help provided, to not allowing people to cancel their service after signing up. 

No matter which site you choose to use, make sure you research and read reviews before you sign up–especially if it’s a paid service! 


When Does “Help” Become “Cheating”?

Admittedly, whether using homework help websites constitutes cheating is a bit of a grey area. For instance, is it “help” when a friend reads your essay for history class and corrects your grammar, or is it “cheating”? The truth is, not everyone agrees on when “help” crosses the line into “cheating .” When in doubt, it can be a good idea to check with your teacher to see what they think about a particular type of help you want to get. 

That said, a general rule of thumb to keep in mind is to make sure that the assignment you turn in for credit is authentically yours . It needs to demonstrate your own thoughts and your own current abilities. Remember: the point of every homework assignment is to 1) help you learn something, and 2) show what you’ve learned. 

So if a service answers questions or writes essays for you, there’s a good chance using it constitutes cheating. 

Here’s an example that might help clarify the difference for you. Brainstorming essay ideas with others or looking online for inspiration is “help” as long as you write the essay yourself. Having someone read it and give you feedback about what you need to change is also help, provided you’re the one that makes the changes later. 

But copying all or part of an essay you find online or having someone write (or rewrite) the whole thing for you would be “cheating.” The same is true for other subjects. Ultimately, if you’re not generating your own work or your own answers, it’s probably cheating.


5 Tips for Finding the Best Homework Help Websites for You

Now that you know some of our favorite homework help websites, free and paid, you can start doing some additional research on your own to decide which services might work best for you! Here are some top tips for choosing a homework help website. 

Tip 1: Decide How You Learn Best 

Before you decide which site or sites you’re going to use for homework help, y ou should figure out what kind of learning style works for you the most. Are you a visual learner? Then choose a site that uses lots of videos to help explain concepts. If you know you learn best by actually doing tasks, choose a site that provides lots of practice exercises.

Tip 2: Determine Which Subjects You Need Help With

Just because a homework help site is good overall doesn’t mean that it’s equally good for every subject. If you only need help in math, choose a site that specializes in that area. But if history is where you’re struggling, a site that specializes in math won’t be much help. So make sure to choose a site that you know provides high-quality help in the areas you need it most. 

Tip 3: Decide How Much One-On-One Help You Need 

This is really about cost-effectiveness. If you learn well on your own by reading and watching videos, a free site like Khan Academy is a good choice. But if you need actual tutoring, or to be able to ask questions and get personalized answers from experts, a paid site that provides that kind of service may be a better option.

Tip 4: Set a Budget 

If you decide you want to go with a paid homework help website, set a budget first . The prices for sites vary wildly, and the cost to use them can add up quick. 

Tip 5: Read the Reviews

Finally, it’s always a good idea to read actual reviews written by the people using these homework sites. You’ll learn the good, the bad, and the ugly of what the users’ experiences have been. This is especially true if you intend to subscribe to a paid service. You’ll want to make sure that users think it’s worth the price overall!
