## Reflection: Homework Complex Doesn't Have to be so Complex! - Section 6: Homework

I used to think the more I assigned for homework the better.  I have learned less is more.  I firmly believe with the transition into Common Core our task should be one rich, rigorous task that allows deep critical thinking to take place.  The days of assigning 1- 30 on page 271 are over.  Less is definitely more!

Practice makes perfect!
