Each day, students complete a warm-up that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material. Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.

Today's warm-up is quick review so that the time for the Play of the Day is maximized.
The homework file is a resource that generally includes 5-7 problems, some of which are related to the day's lesson, as well as spiraled review of previous lessons. I also give the kids the answers to all the problems.
Sometimes, the HW file is a take-home assessment.
