Subject:   RE: Homework

One strategy that I use for homework is I have them do their homework, correct
it with the answers posted on the back wall, and have them ask questions.  Then,
every week I do Homework Quizzes.  This is where I take around 3 sections of
homework and choose problems to have the student copy from their homework to the
homework quiz paper.  They are then graded on whether their work is there and it
is correct.

I hope this helps

For example:  BONUS - Problem 6 from

Hope this helps.
