Erin, I totally agree with you on the homework issue. Sometimes when I
send certain things home, I find the parents help their child in the
only way they know how--for example, using long division instead of
the strategies we have used in class. Therefore, I either send home
"fool-proof" homework (ex: ways we use fractions, decimals, and
percents in real life) or computation practice. I find that students
do need a lot of practice in math facts, and since Investigations does
not emphasize such practice, it is perfect for homework. I, too, end
up doing the homework as an in-class assignment.
