Remember, your homework is due at the beginning of class, BEFORE the bell rings. You get two (2) free tardies and thereafter, late or unexcused absence homework will not be scored (although I will still check it and offer you feedback, as your learning and improvement is still my goal). Homework is the easiest way to practice your skills and improve. Choose to do every assignment, one day at a time, and you will do fine.
Also, when you look at the your grade online and see yourself dropping below 75% or so in the homework portion of the grade, you might want to change your ways. I advise you to do so because my data suggests that any student who does less than 75% of the homework usually does not pass the course. I have been teaching for more than a decade and I can only think of a handful of students who defied the odds in this regard.
Basically, homework=practice=mastery=high grade in course. No homework=no practice=familiarity=lower grade in course. It's quite logical when you stop to think about it .
