most homework is pointless...a couple of problems for reinforcement and maybe a few papers...thats all that teachers should really give out...if they teach the class right, there's really no need for homework except for papers to show that you can explain the material coherently...
otherwise i think its up to the individual to study on their own...
my world history teacher only assigned us a few papers over the course of 2 years...we did almost no work, and he taught the class really well and for the ap test (national test) i studied and got a 5 (highest score possible)...so yea, most homework is pointless but not all

homework trains you, gives you practice, and disciplines you at the same time. it sets the pace and momentum of how much you can handle it, therefore, preparing you to face the pace of workload of assignments during college and work later on.

Homework is so much easier, cuz the teacher has taught already!

Homework is good. Practices steady habit of doing extra work in the future when you get a JOB or something. It's not gonna be like you'll only do work at "work". There will be plenty of times when the boss will tell you to do something extra.

You'll always have to do "homework" during your own time, and this just helps you get the habit of responsibly taking care of any task at hand when you mature. Those of you who thinks else wise, one day.....you'll understand hopefully.

well math homework is good for u, cuz even if u understand math and stuff u need practice to be fluent and if u stop practicing ur math'll get rusty, and i think verb sheets are pretty useful too (im in french immersion) since it helps me remember verbs i should kno but mightve forgotten..

If you didn't get homework, you'd have to either go to school for a few more years or have longer school hours. Because a part of the reason they give out homework is because they can't teach everyone enough in the amount of time they have. So they have you study and do homework(which almost forces you to study and apply the information). A lot of the reason is so that it teaches students to work on their own and to teach them responsibilities and work ethics. If it was just based on tests, only the people with high intelligence would be successful. But education and life rewards hard work and other factors rather than intelligence alone.
