## Homework Thoughts

Teachers assign homework after each class period and students are expected to complete the assignment before the next class. Most of the time, the odd problems are assigned and students are expected to check their own answers and try to correct the problems that they miss. Teachers begin each class by asking the students to send a private chat with the problem numbers that they had difficulty with, and then those problems are worked and explained during class. When even problems are assigned, either an answer key is provided or the teacher goes over those answers at the beginning of the next class. We do not collect or grade homework. Instead, we use the weekly assessments to monitor the students' mastery of the concepts.

Each student is expected to spend time working on math five days each week (two days in class, two days working on the assignment from class, and one day completing the quiz or test of the week.) The amount of time each day will vary based on the student and based on the class level. However, it is reasonable to assume that anywhere between 30 minutes and 1.5 hours will be required to complete each homework assignment.
