#### Abstract

Homework is a widely known strategy that is used to extend students’ learning outside the classroom. Some teachers believe that homework is vital for their students to grasp mathematical concepts that are being taught in person or online because it gives them more practice. Most students complete their homework because they want to keep up with good grades and not get into trouble with their parents, but they feel more successful during in-person instruction. According to the research, students have greater success when more time is spent in-person working on mathematical concepts versus doing homework or working online. Are students directly benefiting from homework or would they benefit more from in-person instruction with some class time to complete practice work?

Is Homework A Valuable Strategy for Learning?

Homework is a widely known strategy that is used to extend students’ learning outside the classroom. Some teachers believe that homework is vital for their students to grasp mathematical concepts that are being taught in person or online because it gives them more practice. Most students complete their homework because they want to keep up with good grades and not get into trouble with their parents, but they feel more successful during in-person instruction. According to the research, students have greater success when more time is spent in-person working on mathematical concepts versus doing homework or working online. Are students directly benefiting from homework or would they benefit more from in-person instruction with some class time to complete practice work?
