Abstract

The research question addressed in this project was, how do teachers successfully motivate students to complete homework? The motivation for this capstone was the continued struggle for students to learn mathematics content in one teacher's Algebra II classrooms, one cause believed to be the lack of homework completion. The author includes research related to increasing homework completion among secondary students and implements three of these strategies in her classrooms: increasing student feedback, restructuring homework and increasing teacher feedback, and pink slips. Her studies showed a significant increase in homework completion from the previous year's Algebra II class to most recent class.
