Types of Homework

Homework typically has one or more purposes. The most common purpose is to have learners practice material already presented in class. Practice – Homework is meant to reinforce learning and help the learner master specific skills.

Preparation – Homework introduces material that will be presented in future lessons. These tasks and assignments aim to help learners learn new material better when it is covered in class.

Extention – Homework asks learners to apply skills they already have to new situations.

Integration – Homework requires the learners to apply many different skills to a single task, such as book reports, projects or perhaps creative writing. Math homework is very important at all times in order to instil the concept taught that day.
