homework tips
Posted:

I am looking for some good ideas about the mechanics of homework in my A.P. course. I currently use the Foerster book and somewhat follow the assignment guides listed with the text, which seems pretty good overall. But I'd really like to know how some other teachers handle the little things concerning homework.
Items such as:  assigning homework (format, timing, # of problems, frequency, etc.)  grading homework (point value, method, etc.)  reviewing homework  anything to make homework more effective
This is my 8th year of teaching calculus, 3rd of AP Calculus and I'm looking for ways to improve the course and generally motivate the kids.
