Sorry in advance if this has been asked before, which I'm sure it probably has. I will be teaching 7th grade math and plan to give homework regularly, but probably not everyday (I don't know yet). Anyway, my main question is, how do you go about grading homework? Do you give completion points, check for accuracy, etc? If you check for accuracy, is it for every assignment? I don't think checking for accuracy is feasible for 150 students, but if you do both accuracy and completion, how do you choose which assignment will be for which kind of points? Also, do you have them hand in homework, or have it out at the desk, or go over at the beginning of class, etc? I know there are lots of questions, but I'm just trying to get a handle on how I plan to handle homework. Oh, and what are your consequences for not doing homework? how long do you allow them to make-up the work/points? I want it to be meaningful and not just busy work and anything I have students do I want to provide feedback, but I just would like to get some ideas how you guys handle it.
