I guess it depends on the school you in and teachers you have.
For me, some homework are pointless (depending on the subject) but I still do them. It can be helpful though. Have you ever felt stupid on the first day of school because you were rotting your brain over vacation (long and/or short term vacations)? Homework keeps our brain working and reviews what we've learned.
However, for school, in one my research literacy class (required course -.-") my group studied on how the amount of homework can affect students within my school. We took anonymous surveys and tallied our results along with information we researched. It came out to be that a certain amount of homework should be given to an extent. In one of the statistics we collected, showed that most countries' average school grade inclined but declined at a certain extent. The only exception was Japan -.-"
Anyway, homework is good for you to a certain extent

yeah i think so too.
unless you're doing it with someone who understands the homework
then he/she can give you some free lessons.
...cooperative learning is the best. :3

homework isn't pointless at all. Don't get me wrong, I hate it but without constant repetition and being able to solve problems on your own, how are you supposed to learn it? Some people can learn by just watching but even still they need to actually practice it to be able to do it right and understand it.

of course homework is useles they give you home work that you dont know how to do or they haven't talk about that topic jet so how i'm soppose to do the home work that i eve know how to do? so to me home work is useless because you dont learn noting from it and it confuse you more.

definitely pointless! (might just be saying that because I had a lot assigned and incomplete so far) if the teachers worked harder to teach us everything at school, things would be perfect.

of course it isn't pointless. but that doesn't mean i don't hate it.
back in the elementary days, it was all review & barely counted for anything.
simple stuff & if you were a fast learner, you could've just skipped it.
but now, homework is self-studying & really up to you.
sure you can just not do it, but it's really no one else's fault but yours when you get caught not knowing the material well enough.
but lately, i don't know how they expect me to do homework without giving me some background. it's just stupid. i don't get it. but it's a lose-lose situation.
