G5052 Posted January 4, 2011 Share Posted January 4, 2011 I've talked to two high school math teachers (i.e. algebra/geometery/trig) in different counties who told me that they only assign 1-3 problems of homework per day. They lecture and then have the students work on certain problems that are checked in class and sometimes turned in. They don't assign more homework because "the students won't do it anyway." I was utterly floored the first time, and got hit with it again today. I just can't imagine learning math that way. My oldest did probably at least a dozen multi-part problems today and commented that it was a "light" day. I just can't imagine learning math without a lot of practice. Maybe learning isn't the point? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
