## Reflection: Accountability FInal Discussion - "Demystifying e" PLUS Skills Practice with Logarithms - Section 3: Extra Practice/Homework Time

Looking for a way to keep students accountable for doing their homework?  See the attached Homework Quiz.

4-5 times throughout the semester, I check homework through a Homework Quiz.  Homework Quizzes are really no more serious than a normal assignment, but there is something about it that lights a fire under the students.  When I sense student motivation is lacking, I simply tell them that there just might be a Homework Quiz on the following day.  (If you are going to say this talk, however, you certainly have to back it up from time to time!)

Again, Homework Quizzes are graded no more heaviliy than a normal homework assignment in my class.  To conduct a homework quiz, simply ask your students to write down the problem and all work for any four problems on the assignment.  The nice thing about a Homework Quiz is that it is easy to grade and can be given with very short notice - all you have to do is hand them out and select four problems.
