f your child is in the "advanced" math group, homework is designed to get them to do work more quickly and develop word problem skills. This will ready them for contests in which the group participates. Students in this group will receive more than enough practice in their homework but kids in the advanced group also work at different paces. Some are quick and finish the math quickly- they typically know their math facts like the back of their hand. Others work more slowly, more methodically. 15-30 minutes on math alone per night. DO NOT spend more. Students spending too much time on math could reach a frustration level that will do more harm than good. If you want to finish it on the weekend, just ask, but you don't have to. Just mark where you left off with a line and have your parent write a quick note, "worked in a focused manner for a sufficient amount of time". We will accept what you get done. |
