## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Solving Multi-Step problems giving part to whole ratios - Section 6: Homework

I will expound on my philosphy of homework at another time.  I know I have said this in several of my lessons, but this lesson has assigned homework, and I want to speak to this assignment.  I am definitely QUALITY over QUANTITY.  When I was a rookie educator, I was definitely the one who assigned 1-30 all, show your work, and make sure it is done or else, typ of teacher.  I began to see a trend in myself, the homework would not be assessed appropriately, the students who did do it, would not get the proper feedback from me to see gains, and it was me being immature in my career.  Now, that was 16 years ago, math has changed drastically.  Could you imagine giving a student 30 questions that encompassed all we need from them.  Boy oh boy.  I choose two questions that are going to show me what the students gained from the lesson of the day, or a combination of recall from previous lessons taught.  I love to use 4 rich assessment questions for the entire lesson, one for the lesson, one for the exit ticket, and two for the homework if it is condusive to do so.  This builds consisitency in the lesson, good lesson flow for the students, and provides an example for the parents to help with the child once home.

To Give Homework, or Not to give? That is the Question.
