Some help with hand eye coordination (or foot eye in the case of DDR =)), entertainment, thought process/problem solving (puzzle games), weight loss/active (with games like Wii games), can give some experience (small amount) with things such as driving/steering Costs money, many are inactive-make you lazy, addictive, can interfere with responsibilities, some are violent/graphic

Technically, both 12 and -12 are correct. But when simplifying a square root, the convention is you can assume they mean the positive square root (aka principle square root). So if you are given √144, you are being told that this is the positive square root. √144 = 12 If you are given -√144, you are being told that this is the negative square root. -√144 = -12 If you're solving for x, then you MUST include the positive and negative (unless you're solving for a length, which is always positive). x^2 = 144 x = ±√144 x = ±12

Positive- Hand eye coordination, quick reflexes, fast thinking. Feeling of achievement, self esteem, and rightful pride. Negative- Ruins eyesight, distraction from homework/social life, and more fierce emotions to victory or failure as time passes with exposure to video games.

Originally Answered: What are some positive and Negative issues due to mobile phones in teenagers?
Texting for sure, for many reasons. Teens are learning how to have conversations only through text. Excessive text. Phones are glued to teens hands. It's always, OMG! he hasn't texted me back yet, IT'S BEEN 3 MINUTES! It's sad. Teens are also using this "texting slang" and are forgetting how to actually write out an actually word. Teens are too addicted to the social network and phones that are coming out these days are only allowing them to get more and more addicted and connected ie. apps for facebook, twitter etc. Which leads to no active life. Growing up, I was always outside and this technology has only grown to be so popular as I was graduating from high school so I was always outside and loving it. If you think about it really it's a vicious circle. Cell phones might be effecting lives, teen lives, more then we may think. It's keeping teens from being physically active and socially active other then using their fingers as a way to communicate with others. OH what about carpal tunnel, haha that's more of a joke I use towards my nephew who just got his cell phone and texts his GF all day on. BUT what if it's true. The only good thing that comes from teens having a cell phone is to be able to get a hold of them when they start to drive, other then that whatever happened to hanging down the street playing street hockey or basket ball at the park up the road????
