Abstract

Math teachers assign homework on a daily basis and many students do not complete the work. This study sought to identify the essential considerations of teachers when planning, assigning, and grading homework. Four experienced math teachers participated in the research. The ongoing written homework record of these teachers was observed in the classroom and online. Teachers were observed assigning, correcting and collecting homework. Individual interviews provided opportunities for reflection and insight into the essential components of homework practices. The primary truth emerging from the study is that teachers are more likely to have students complete homework when the teacher has been intentional in planning the assignment and students are held accountable for work not finished.
