My son has a math teacher this summer who does not mark the homework. Theyâ€™re supposed to do it, but they donâ€™t grade it. So they donâ€™t know if they got it right or wrong. I have been very frustrated with this because I have said (too often) that if the person THINKS they understood the question, they wonâ€™t know to ask about it when the teacher goes over the â€œproblemsâ€ in class.
Today my son got his test back. He made an 85. Because he didnâ€™t know he was doing one kind of problem wrong. (He thought he was doing it right.) He missed three examples of that problem on the test.
GRADE THE HOMEWORK!
