I don't know what grade you are in, but the average classroom teaches 8 subjects a day, has to prep students for state testing, handle behavior problems, and do many other things in the school day. Homework is a way for a teacher to check to see if a students has understood what they have taught that day or week. Only about 40-45 minutes is given for direct teaching in each subject, so it is hard to tell if a student is learning. Homework is one way to do it.

Homework is also a way for students to master what they have been taught. You learn things not just by observing them but by DOING them. Watching a person paint a picture is not the same as painting one yourself. Watching someone do math is not the same as applying it yourself. Etc. Etc. Etc. Students who do the homework learn. Student's who do not do the homework don't. Thousands of years of human experience has demonstrated this.

Teachers give so much homework because they want you to be smarter and to memorize what your doing and they want you to understand how to do.

Im sorry if teachers give to much homework.

P.S. you could always talkto you teacher and ask them to give less homework.

Most teachers realize that you're going to have homework in other classes and don't try to overwhelm you with work, but you can always speak to your teacher - politely! - and let them know what your other teachers have given you and ask for extra time to finish or for less work in the future

A general rule of thumb is that for every hour taught there is 3 hours of work to do on your own. Some schools and teachers in particular will change this ratio, making the amount of time spent outside of class learning slightly different. It is impossible to teach a child everything he or she needs to know in only an hour's time or less, and thus children are given homework so they can learn on their own and reinforce what they were just taught.

To help you learn or else they have no way of seeing whether you learned it or not. They don't want shy people who don't understand concepts to do bad on quizzes/tests because they didn't understand something and were too afraid to ask. It is also a good way for teachers to help fluff up a student's grade.

Other reason teachers give out homework so you can review it at home,and again to make sure you understand what she/he is teaching during the class.

I always saw homework as a way to check to see if the students understood what I taught. It told me if I had to reteach the lesson. Homework in my classes was work that wasn't finished and not extra work. I corrected all work the students turned in to me.

in my opinion i think teachers give way to much homework for a student to handle. There also comes a time when i think that teachers do this to students to prepare for the future at hand.

There is no law, however there is the general tenet in education the classroom time is intended for instruction and demonstration, and practice (homework) should be done outside of class.

Homework must be graded, and they're not doing that during class.

Is an extra 2 hours homework too much for an 11 year old child?

It depends. Two hours total homework isn't too much - you can get that done before dinner and have the whole evening free. Two hours on top of what you're already doing seems a bit much and you should have a talk with your teachers about how much work you have every night.
