HomeworkMy homework policy: Students may have homework Monday through Thursday. The homework should only take five or ten minutes and has three purposes. One, it should be a reinforcement of the days learning. Two, it gets students used to the responsibility of having homework. Three, it helps parents keep track of what we are doing in school.
I give credit for homework if the student returns a completed paper. I do not penalize students for errors in their homework. Some parents help their kids more than others so I find it unreasonable to give certain students higher grades. Over the course of a quarter the math homework will add up to one test grade.
