Words that describe homework are:
Homework is a way for you to practice what you are learning. If you didn't have homework, you would have to stay in school until you finished your practice, and since everyone works at different rates, you'd be there until the slowest people finally caught on.
Nobody likes practicing things - musicians get bored practicing scales, athletes get bored practicing their moves, and students get bored practicing their learning skills. However, practice does make perfect, and the more you work on your homework problems, the better you get at the skills you will need when you get out of school.
Some students think the teachers are "mean" for giving homework, but think about it - you have ONE assignment to do for that teacher - the teacher then has to read every single paper from every student and give it a grade. Which one of you has more work to do?
Doing homework will not make you "smarter," but it will teach you how to use the "smarts" that you have in your brain already - doing homework makes you faster and better at doing other things.
Homework allows students to practice the skills they learn during school. This helps the student retain the knowledge gained during the day rather than school being a pointless waste of time because nothing was learned or remembered.Pros for Doing Homework
Reasons For Homework
Homework is not meant to reflect the real world, but to help you learn skills that you will need in that world. You will need to be able to read and understand what you read; you will need to be able to do simple math to do such things as balancing your bank account or planning how much food to buy for a party with twenty people; you will need to know how to research and look up information. And you will need to be able to communicate information to other people in a way that they can understand.
You need to do homework because that is one of the ways the teacher knows if you were listening in class, and actually understand what was being taught. If you don't, you may have trouble learning things based on that information.
so that you remember what you did in the class that you had. for example if it was maths and i learnt algebra, i would remember what i did in the class and get better at my skills. :D
There is a saying, "practice makes perfect."
Children are given homework because it helps in the learning process and teaches responsibility.
Some students think "children have homework because the teacher is bored." That is far from how it really is. Actually, the teacher's job would be a LOT easier if homework was not given, and the teacher would have more time at home to do hobbies, sports, or relax. After all, if a teacher gives homework to 20 students, each student has to do the homework once; the teacher has to grade all 20 homework assignments.
as the daughter of a teacher, I know that my mom gives homework to help students get practice with the material so that she knows how they are doing..also, the lesson for the next day is usually going over the homework. So, your answer is, to give students practice and to have a lesson for the next day!
Use it! And one good start is to read and participate in forums such as this on the internet. Find a group of people that are interested in something you are interested in, say martial arts or the works of Tolkien or Bollywood. Find forums on the internet on that topic and join in! You will learn a great deal, get more comfortable with the language and make new friends. And most of them will be very understanding if they know that English is not your native language. Comment This reminds me of an old joke:
A fellow with a ticket to a concert at Carnegie Hall was visiting New York City for the first time. He was unsure of his directions, but soon saw an elderly gentleman who was carrying a violin case.
"That elderly gentleman must be a musician," he said to himself. "Surely he must know the way to Carnegie Hall."
So the fellow approached the elderly gentleman and asked, "Sir, how can I get to Carnegie Hall?"
The elderly gentleman stopped, smiled, and answered, "Practise, practise, practise."
The moral (if I may use that word) is that there are no shortcuts, no quick and easy ways, to improve one's skills in anything, from athletics to nuclear medicine. You just have to work at it -- all the time.
I am 64 years of age. I often write two or three business letters and make a handful of business telephone calls in the course of a day. I try to read at least one newspaper every day. There is always at least one book that I am reading, often two or three. I still use a dictionary several times a week.
Nothing worthwhile is ever achieved without some effort. I do notice, however, that you already have the ability to spell properly and compose a coherent and meaningful sentence. That, in itself, is a very good start.
Let me offer you a few tips.
More from our WikiReaders: 1. You mustn't be afraid of making mistakes but once you make them you have to rectify them with the help of a grammar book or a dictionary
2. The best way to improve your fluency is to not just speak in English, but think in English, because if you are thinking in your mother-tongue and you try to translate your message to English before actually saying it, you will not only speak in a slow way, but you will spoil that day's English advantage and learning. Just try to speak inside of your mind (think) in English, and it will come out in a more natural way
3. Also, when you're out and about, or even at home, think, and also SPEAK OUT LOUD, the things you are doing, the things you see. And speak to other people! Always remember it's good to make mistakes, because you can learn from them and improve by remembering what you did wrong and improve that.
4.Its a good idea to speak loudly.
5.Listen to English songs as much as possible and try to sing along.
6.Read English articles, books and reviews as much as possible.
7.Whenever you come across a new word write it down somewhere and find out the meaning.
8.BE CONFIDENT. Give your self auto suggestions that you have a good English trust me it really works.
Read books with a larger vocabulary than you are used to with a dictionary by your side to help you understand new words.
Reading a lot is a good way of improving one`s grammar and learning new vocabulary and language structures.
Read english newspaper regularly and also by watching English movie.
Aside from that you should check out some online learning sites (there's a link to a good one below). Another good idea is to find someone who talks English as a first language. Talk with them on MSN or Skype or something and just talk a lot.
What can you do to improve your English, not How can you do............
To improve you must practice. The best practice is to talk, talk, talk, talk to as many native English speakers as you can.
When you are learning a foreign language the greatest resource you have is the people who speak the language so make use of that resource and practice practice practice.
No you dont skip a line. The sources should be double spaced but with no spaces.
There are not any specific foods that "make" you learn better. However, there are definitely things that are good and things that are not good when you are trying to learn. * Junk Food - sugary or fatty snacks are a definite No-No when studying, because they make your body feel sluggish and tired, and you want to be at your most alert and energetic when trying to learn something! Both sugar and fats give you a short burst of energy, but then you "crash" once it runs out, and you feel worse than when you started out. * Caffeine - caffeine can definitely improve alertness. The best way to use caffeine is the way the Brits do it - many smaller cups of tea (or coffee) over several hours instead of the American habit of one super-giant-extra-shot espresso drink all at once. Spreading smaller amounts of caffeine out keeps the alertness going, but gulping one huge dose makes you "crash" after a few minutes - it's like revving your car engine - yeah, you get a huge burst of power, but it doesn't last long. * Protein - eating healthy protein like nuts or lean meat helps by giving your body something to help keep it going longer - sugars and fats are short bursts of energy - protein is long-lasting nutrition that will keep you going through your studies. * Healthy sugars - natural sugars found in fruits and veg are not the same as junk food sugar. Eating fruit and veg will give you energy that lasts, and you won't have that "sugar crash" that you get with junk food. * Vitamins - unless you are already eating properly, with almost no junk foods and the right proportions of fruit, veg, and meats in your diet, then you should be taking a Multi-Vitamin once a day to keep you healthy!
A Word About "Help"
If you mean actual help, then any of the websites are good places to go - if you mean "where can I get someone else to do my work for me?" then WikiAnswers will not be very helpful.
The point of homework is for you to practice, practice, practice so that you will learn how to do the material from school. Even if it seems useless to you now, the things that you learn how to do will help you later - you might not ever need to know those words you have to look up, but you will certainly need to know how to look up information!
there is need of exam where you can show your memory capacity your average your studying capabilities
Exams and tests show the teacher how well you understand the material, so they know if they need to try to help you further, or move on to the next section of the class.
Hold out both hands in front of you. Hold your thumbs apart from your fingers to form an angle. The hand that makes an L shape is your left hand. Obviously, the other one is the right hand.
Remember which hand you write with.. I'm right handed.. sooooo i write with my RIGHT. and you cant forget which hand you write with so you could remember that or if youre a lefty just remember you write with your left
Read to the child every day. Emphasize teaching the sounds and names of letters. Teach writing and reading together to reinforce each other.
From my understanding, Primary and Secondary research are the difference in conducting the research. In Primary research, there is no data available for the researcher, hence the researcher has to start from scratch. This means that the researcher needs to design questionaires, collect data from respondents and then analyse the result. If you are doing secondary research, the researcher have the necessary data available. These data are made available through other publications or reports, like newspaper or annual reports of companies. If the researcher is doing secondary research, there is no need to start from scratch, he or she uses the data or information done by other organizations or publications. The important thing is that there are advantages and disadvantages for both methods. Primary research is more time consuming and costly. While some secondary research may not suit the researcher's needs.
*DO NOT ERASE other answers!! ADD yours to the end of the list*
You may vote to ban homework -- but then you would have to stay at school until you showed each teacher that you could do the work! You'd be at school from 6am until 10pm.
Here's what some of our WikiReaders have to say:
1. to build up the knowledge of the student to a level required for examinations
2. The time table required to tutor knowledge is very tight and ensuring the studant is on target to move on to the next subject does require some additional work
3. when leaving school and entering futher education, university apprentiships addtional study time will be expected of the student - undertaking this at a school levels develops (but clearly not always) a discipline to follow up on studies
4. many education bodies are "advised" by the government of the day that home work is expected to raise the educational standards of the are group
The only reason I can think of for teachers not giving homework is that not having homework would make their jobs a whole lot easier. That really would not be fair to students, though, since homework helps them learn the lessons, provides an opportunity for them to develop good study habits, and provides them an opportunity to be responsible.
Teachers have to give homework. The idea and reality of homework is to increase learning in a different environment. It also gives parents an avenue to see the progress that the child is making. Homework is a tool that allows the child to take what he has learned and apply it in a different setting
Homework can be a good thing and a bad thing at the same time.
Homework actually tests your level of understanding on the chapter. It also helps you revise for your exams and asks you questions that don't appear in your textbook. For example, if you can't answer most of the questions, it means that your level of understanding for that chapter is low and you need to consult a teacher about it.
However, too much homework is not a good thing. Thus, if you're not able to cope, do talk to a teacher about it! I tried it in high school and apparently, it's working. All the best! :)
Yes, because summer is about hot weather, swimming pools, going to the beach, and going out with friends. For most of those who hate doing homework even in the summer, have to do it any way. Eventhough some teachers say that summer homework helps students maintain their skills. However what if you get the whole summer off from doing work. This is why summer homework should be banned.
Of course. Teachers are giving homeworks not to bother you. It is helpful because having homeworks is a test if you understand a lesson and if you can answer questions without the teacher's help. (Unless if you're going to make your family answer it.)
While some people prefer to have background noise (such as music) going while they study, others prefer complete silence. And it also depends on the type of studying you're doing. For instance, someone studying simple math problems might be less distracted by music than someone studying advanced economics.
The key question to ask yourself is "Am I spending more time listening to the music than I am spending on my studies?" If the answer is yes, then you need to cut the music down or turn it off altogether.
The latest scientific information shows that some background noise usually does help most people "tune out" noises like traffic, construction, or people talking, and help them concentrate on what they are doing. However, this music should be slow to medium paced (not fast rock or heavy metal) and have no vocals or loud drum beats!
WikiAnswers is not going to help you cheat on getting homework answers - that's wrong and you could be suspended or even expelled.
It is best to do homework yourself. This way you can learn and then be able to impress your teachers and friends and learn how to getter better in that subject. Then you can go to the next grade. Then you can graduate and get a good job all because you do your own homework.
Yes, most children hate homework but the rewards are ever rich.
There are many websites which can aid you to complete your homework. It is therefore upto you to do the research relative to your homework.
No. You need your notebook and your textbook and whatever the teacher has assigned for you to do. Cheating will not help you to learn anything -- you might pass the assignment, but you'll be dumb when it comes to trying to do the test.
Besides that, here are some reasons that this is not the best idea you might have:
Learning Tips has a lot of good questions that will help you do your homework. We at WikiAnswers are always happy to give you help, but we won't do the homework for you. Look through our Learning Tips questions to see what's already been answered. If you need quick facts and speedy answers, try using a search engine like www.google.com or www.dogpile.com!
or you could just do it yourself and stop being such a duma**
There can be many reasons.
1. The material is boring.
2. They aren't being rewarded for learning.
3. They see it as a chore.
4. They have more interesting things to do.
5. They've had bad experiences.
it can be really hard. Especially if you were/are in a gifted program like me. I found it easier to do your homework first, and try to finish long term assignments a day before it's due or before. To do this, pretend you had a writing assignment due in 2 weeks. Then every day do around 1/13 of it. Then you will have it done a day before it's due. Also try to do your homework that's due the next day first, then work on the long term assignments. If your school uses computers, remember to save your work in many locations at your home computer, and bring the newest copy of anything to school every day, even if it's a minor edit. Never delete anything from your computer, you never know when your teacher will forget where he/she put it and then you find out you don't have it.
Aiming for perfection is fine so long as you don't beat yourself up if you don't make it!
You have to work very hard to get perfect grades - attend all of your classes and take good notes every day, study every day and extra before a test, do all of your homework and maybe some extra credit work, and ask the teacher for help any time there is something that is hard to understand. Even with all of this hard work, you may not get perfect scores! Not everyone is good at every single subject, and most people have at least one subject that is especially hard for them.
I like to encourage students to try for the best grade they can get by working hard, without feeling that they have to be perfect. It's a lot more healthy to understand that you can't really ever be perfect.
Here are some specific tips:
Doing homework while watching the television is multi-tasking, which splits the brain's focus and lowers efficiency. Furthermore this means that you are concentrating on two separate things, more likely to get distracted to the TV than homework because it is more enjoyable. Thus, this results in you getting distracted and exceeding the amount of time it takes until you have finished your homework. Since watching TV while doing your homework slows you down, do them separately. Do some of your homework, and then you can reward yourself with a brief break in which you can watch a little TV or call a friend. Then get back to doing your homework so that you can finish it and enjoy the rest of your evening.
**Read this whole list if you want funny excuses**
**That out of the way, here are some dumb excuses you can laugh at**
It would be best to simply tell the truth about why you did not do your homework. Teachers can often tell when someone is being dishonest, so lying would not make the situation any better. Whatever you do, don't use the "my dog ate it" excuse."
Before the Test: Try to guess what type of material will be on the test. To do this, pay attention to any study guides the teacher gives out. Take note of anything the teacher seems to emphasizing particularly. Make up possible questions based on this information. Then see if you can answer those questions. Study every day, not just the night before the test! Instead of cramming, be sure to get enough sleep that night, and eat a healthy breakfast to give you energy. Relax before the test - do some deep breathing and stretching exercises.
During the Test: read everything carefully! Be sure you understand what is being asked - raise your hand and ask the teacher if you do not understand what any question is asking. If you really have no idea about a question, then skip that one and try again later if you have time. Here are some specific tips for different tests.
After the Test: don't just jump up and leave, or put your head on your desk for a nap!
Post-Test Follow-Up: once you have your grade, go over the test to see where you did well and where you did poorly. Keep your old test papers to help you study. If you have trouble with a particular kind of test, practice those sorts of questions in between your regular tests. Here are some online related links to help!
The Index Card Study Method:
(click on the related link for more)
Write down a "What does this term mean?" question any time you see a word or phrase in bold print in your book. Write down any question you remember the teacher asking in class. Write questions you think you would ask if you were teaching this section.
Put the answer or explanation in your own words whenever possible. Make the answer short enough for you to memorize without skipping any important information. If you have trouble deciding what is important, ask your teacher or someone who is making good grades to help you out.
(so you can't memorize any of the answers just because of where they are in the deck )
Try to answer the question or explain the termwithout looking. You can do this silently in your own head, or you can "quiz" yourself out loud if you like. If you know the answer, tell yourself "Good!" and put that card on the bottom of the deck.
If you don't know the answer, turn the card over and read it. Put this card in the middle of the deck so that you will read it again soon.
Keep going through the deck of cards until you know all of the information!Some Tips:
Use every little bit of time. Test yourself while you're waiting in a line, riding in a bus or car, etc. Quiz your friends, too!

Scientists believed that Roberto Nevilis from Italy started homework in 1095. He was a school teacher in Venice.
According to the latest scientific data I can find, here are some basic numbers:
That would depend on a couple factors. What kind of school do you attend, e.g. public, private, college prep, university? What grade are you in, e.g. middle school, high school, college, graduate? How many classes are you taking?
I will assume you are at the secondary level (high school). I would estimate you should have about 2-4 hours of homework. This time would very depending on how well you understand the material and how fast you are at doing your work (or how fast you can read).
High school about 2 hours minimum each night. Primary school should be no more than an hour.
It depends on the classes you are taking... I have 4 honors classes so I regularly stay up 'til 11: 30 or later in other words around 5 hours of homework every night, but my cousin has only 2 honors classes and has only 3 hours of homework.
It depends on how you want to put it into context. Usually I find having an essay as a small amount while group projects a larger amount. Because of this it just depends on who looks at it.
If you are in years 7-10 it should probably take 1-2 hours, im in year 9 it takes be 1- 1 and 1/2 hours Depends on your age, you as a person, the piece of homework. I am a neurotic perfectionist, therefore resulting in me taking forever on my homework and the size of the homework can vary it. The average though is: Year 7 = 45 minutes to 1 hour a day, Year 8 = 45 minutes to 1 to 1/2 hours a day, Year 9= 1 to 2 hours a day and Year 10 and 11 - 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours a day.
PQ4R is a study technique to help students with difficulty in reading. It can help students with improved understanding and recall of facts. The acronym PQ4R stands for:
Learning to listen is an important skill. You can improve your listening skills just as you improve any other skill - see the link below for more information.
* An old saying tells us that if you are a good a good listener, everywhere you go, people will lke you; and after a while, you'll learn something.
So you can clearly understand what the task is a hand.
How are you ever gonna use history in your life? Who cares about the great wall of china or about genghis khan. All you have to know is the country who invented maths, science, Olympic games, philosophy, the catapult, democracy and half of the English language gets its basis from this country.....Greece of course.....
Only ignorant people don't care about history - if you don't know what mistakes people have made in the past, how are you going to keep from making the same dumb errors all over again?
For math, you can use a calculator to save the time of working on paper. Of course, if you are asked to show your work, just copy your problem and answer on paper.
Small print: but if your parents catch you doing this, you are in serious trouble.
I find that the best way to get your homework done well is to:
1) Relax. Stressing out will make your work sloppy and you will not get it done fast.
2) Turn on some soft music like Classical. It will soothe you and will help you work better.
3) Fill a glass with cool drinking water. If you are hydrated you will feel refreshed and ready to work.
4) Make sure you have everything you need at hand. If you have things like a sharpened pencil, researching books (if its that sort of project) and any supplies you might need, you will find it much easier to get your work done- and quickly.
5) Get rid of any distractions. Doing things like turning off the TV, putting everything away, and making sure you don't have anything else you would need to do (like using the washroom, for example) will help to have an undisturbed, easy-going work session.
If you can do all that, you will be finishing your homework fast yet efficiently.
OR: Get off of the internet and just do it.
OR: Get off of the internet and just do it.
There is no way you can do your homework fast unless you do it diligently. But you could try out some of this methods.
Find out the if is there any things that distract you which lead you unto doing your homework slow. If there is, find a solution to stop your problem.
Problem: The area you are studying at is too noisy.
Solution: Move to a quieter area to do your homework.
Try listing the homework you have down on a piece of paper. Then, write the amount of time you think you can take to finish your homework. Set it as your target and try reaching it. The next time you used this method again, shortened the amount of time you took the previous time you try using this method. This may help you to do it much more faster.
Make a timetable. You may include your bathing time, playing time, but most importantly, you must remember to include your HOMEWORK TIME.
First of all, listen to what your teacher is explaining and look at the board, notes, or your books for reference. If you have a subject you struggle with, ask someone older than you what's confusing you. If that doesn't help, let's say your stuck on number 3 on math. JUST GOOGLE IT! Google will give you tons of answers. To get the fastest way, when you get home try and if it is too stressing... just watch some tv or text your friends. When you get things off your mind, try again.
