i think that the people who need to do homework dont do it and the people who dont need to do homework and already understand the materal are forced to do it becouse they care about there grade.

i have a econ class were i sleep in class and have set the curve for almost ever test. and there are people who are struggling in the class and need homework so they can understand the matterial but they never would do it. but i dont need any homework becouse i already understand the matterial. so i think homework usefullness is nullifyed.

ps: it is not a good idea to hit your head on a wall as hard as you can before a econ test the pain in you head is not ofset by ability to understand econ

That's what school is: Teachers saying a few things and then just making kids do homework out of a textbook. Education at schools these days is just really lame. I learned more stuff by myself than I did at school. If I wanted to I could literally learn everything off the internet if not more than I did at school.

This is one of the reasons I was able to skip so many days at school and still graduate a semester early with half way decent grades.

Most of the homework I get isn't that bad or that isn't much. Like in Spanish we rarely get homework but when we do it's really simple and quick to do(except for the essays). Math class I think it's kind of important to have homework because it's hard to learn without doing it, or at least in my experience that's how it's been. But...all of my classes are AP(college level in high school) classes so it's a bit different.

Homework, especially over vacation, is a pain either way though and I hate it.

I believe the point of having some homework to do over vacation is so that your retaining everything that was taught to you over the break. I dont know about you but I sure as hell aint learning when I am not at school, nor am I making sure to remember everything im taught while I was there.

For the people 15 and below. The point is to make you get used to working over the holidays because once you get to those higher levels of education, studying during the holidays is a normal thing because there are exams you need to prepare for or coursework you need to hand in that can sometimes be big enough to take more than a year to finish.



thats a lie I've never studied over the holidays and never will my boss doesnt even make me work on holidays.

OMG! That's totally it! The teachers just try to torture us as much as they can and then they sit at home during the holidays thinking: 'Mwahahahahah . . . those stupid little creatures, they gotta suffer!'
I'm kinda scared now . . .

I am in the smartest class in the whole school, and the homework we get is stuff I already learned except math, I have manual math, I learn myself. Also my dad, who is like 40 or something, had no homework during the vacations when he was in school. He said that it's thanks to the average grades of the whole state you guys get homework. Their kids that don't study and get bad grades, so to improve them, the teachers started to give homework during the vacation hoping the grades would improve.

I think its good if you have HW during the winter cuz that way it ensures that your mind does not rust out and I mean lets face it you are bound to have loads of free time so might as well do something constructive.

Just work hard and do anything you can to complete them(don't care about bad or good method).....

.....If they're part of your points or credits.

(Beleive me that it's better than doing the exam in full points)

eg. Like "Calculas", I'd rather to do its homeworks to store my points cuz its exam is so hellish !!!
