I had assigned homework in most math classes and physics courses I took. They were turned in. How strictly it was graded depended on the TA, but there was definitely a lot of assigned homework.

You're going into your third year and don't have homework figured out? I had it down after a week! :

Seriously, I don't know of a solution. I think part of the solution has to do with making sure the tasks are valuable and manageable. And part of it has to do with keeping the focus on learning.
I wonder if the concept of homework exists at the college/university level?

I don't ever remember in all my college days ... anyone (faculty/bosses/students) talking about having to do "homework".

That doesn't mean there wasn't stuff for students to read for the next class but to do problems and turn them in????
