It is already December and I feel impatient because I haven't properly met with my partner and studied together. I have talked to them about their progress but I doubt that they started studying. I feel bad saying this, but one of them didn't even know what was CRISPR in November for Protein Modeling. I had to show them what the CBM website was about so they clearly didn't take the initiative to to some independent research. I was quite disappointed. My school is a no name team so Science Olympiad is treated as something on the side.
I am not aware of what my partners progress is, but how can I motivate my partners? I notice that a lot of the forums online talk about their stories about their partners in a bad way without trying to resolve the problem. This forum is more for suggestions on resolving these partner problems.
I think that once I do a formal study session with them, they may feel the peer pressure to be productive and study. Maybe they will take it more seriously a few weeks later.
Should I just accept the fact and study everything? Personally, I can't help myself to study and do everything (cheat sheet, building, tests). I think that will take off a lot of pressure. I might as well not get into any arguments with my parters and do all the studying.
