Hints and Tips for Helping with Homework

In the mathematics department we give two types of homework:

1.  Finishing off – this is generally work that has been started in class to be completed from the textbook in the classwork jotter.  Pupils should always be consulting their notes jotter and should be checking answers at the end of each exercise.  Any problems with this homework should be raised with the teacher at the start of the next lesson.

 

2.  Formal Homework – this is work that will be completed in a homework jotter.  Pupils should again consult their notes jotter if unsure.  If a pupil is experiencing problems they should ask their maths teacher for help during the next lesson or attend the study support classes that are available.
