As a math teacher, I am expected to assign homework. After all, math requires practice.
We do not have the time to unlearn mistakes. We need to focus on the right process, and give students the feeling of some success. So I will not assign homework this year. I will not send a student home with pages of work, we use every second in class to learn. That will have to be enough. Because at the end of the day, I am assigned to teach Algebra but I teach students.
