Who here likes to do homework? I presume not very many. Right now I want to do homework. Maybe I'm going crazy? I don't know.

You're not crazy... I've been bored enough myself to feel like tackling other people's homework. I say, go find something constructive to do!

Lukie, remind me a bit later and you can do some of mine. I just finished (most of) my homework. (the stuff I have to do yet I don't understand what's the assignment so I'd not be able to tell you what to do)

I despised homework! Admittedly, I watched WAY too much of the boobtube instead of studying when still in school. Not doing homework was one of the main reasons I failed the 10th grade because in my HS it counted as 1/3 your grade. With passing being 70%, you can do the math and see no homework = no pass. No lie!:frown: Needless to say, I learned my lesson on doing home work the hard way.:rolleyes: I hope you'll stay motivated to do yours and not suffer the consequences as I did.

Who in the world would like homework? I think it's the whole mandatory thing that turns people off in many cases, rather than the assignments themselves. So that might be why we sometimes don't mind helping other people with their homework, or are willing to research something on our own and write up our opinions on adisc, but make it homework that has to be handed in tomorrow and it becomes a chore. This is why I don't favor mandatory reading times for elementary school students.

I understand that mandatory thing perfectly. When I was in primary school I had to read for half an hour every day. And I hated it. Even if I enjoyed the book I never read more then I had too, because I was forced to do it. I've had difficulty reading a book ever since. They made reading a chore for me, as opposed to something to enjoy. I still haven't recovered from it, and even though I love books and stories, I still hate reading as an action.

I never liked doing homework. Even if it was something that was probably enjoyable to do, I was still all "Grr, I have homework!" I find myself working much better in classes rather than on my own at home. Eve though I'm in college now and most of my homework isn't boring to do, I still feel kinda "Ehh" about it just for the fact that it's just that...homework. Haha.

A few thousand years ago, when I did homework, I would start on it as soon as I hit the house, I would go sit down on the couch and stay there untill it was done even on friday when I could have put it off for a few days.

Get it done and over with as soon as you can, and you have the rest of the night or weekend to do as you please.

But homework makes us all better learners!

Homework in my secondary school was a joke, I often finished my maths homework in class while the homework was being explained... The rest of the "home" work got done at school. So I rarely enjoyed it, but it didn't really bother me.

College homework was fine. Writing essays for homework is fun, and maths homework is alright too. I like homework that is worthwhile, like maths homework is necessary and if you don't do it you are likely to get a lower grade because the homework is important revision. Same with all subjects, you only get out of it what you put in.

I do hate "homework for the sake of homework" that we sometimes got in high school. If it's not necessary, if I'm not gaining anything, then why bother? Some teachers just like to make you do homework so you suffer...

I've always looked at homework as necessary, but a nuisance. I love to learn, but homework is so boring! I could be doing many more fun things!

For me most homework is done in class before I go home or done in my free periods. A lot of homework also gets forgotten. Unfortunately with teachers I was able to use bull to get past this had a noticeable effect on my results. Fortunately I was planning on dropping design anyway, but the D still hurt a little.

homework is evil! of course that kind of attitude probably has something to do with why I failed/LCed a lot of my classes last year. and why I went from being class of '09 to class of '10.

I do not enjoy homework, but it is a necessary evil if you are going to pass anything in university. It sucks though, because whenever I finally get home from school, all I want to do is play guitar and chill out, not do more work. I don't normally have a problem completing it though.

I did my math homework without much protest, simply because it's pretty much required if you want to pass the math exam. Without practice, you won't be fast enough on the actual exam to pass, so practice makes perfect.

However, I never understood the idea of reading pages in a text book. I learn more effectively if someone explains the stuff to me in person rather than in 100s of pages of black ink on white dead trees.

That's why I chose chemistry as one of my majors in high school - no homework! They surely wouldn't let us take the dangerous stuff home to experiment with! :D

I usually enjoy homework, but I've been doing between 2-5hrs a day at home, as well as 2hrs of revision at school on my spare, 80% of all of that being for one subject.

I've always been told if you're a good student you do 45 minutes per day per subject, even if it's just studying. I try to stick by that.

This year I realized something beautiful - I like to write essays! I mean, not necessarily because I like the material, but because I like to write I guess. Not really evidenced by anything I post on here I guess ~_~

And my math teacher always warns us about how hard the math is this year but it's really easy. Maybe I'm just starting to get it :D

you chose a major in high school?
Two majors, two minors, along with other general requirements. Majors are 6 classes per week, minors are 4, the other subjects 2. Each class is 45 mins, by the way.
Obviously, your school system may be different.

What about writing up the labs?
:confused: What do you mean? Explain!
