I think I've decided what to do with my ever-constant homework grading issue. My problem is that I hate to just give completion credit, but I don't want to grade it because of (1) time and (2) the possibility that it may take the students more practice to get the skills down.
Does that sound reasonable?
In precalc I'm not going to give any completion points, but I'll collect some of the class every day and grade 3 - 4 problems. I have the kids sitting in groups of 4 and have numbered the groups 1 - 7 so I'll either randomly generate 4 numbers of tables to turn in or pick odds or evens. That way not every kid is turning in an assignment every day but it's always a possibility (and it's different from class to class; that's important to me so my 6th period doesn't assume theirs will be collected/not).
I know I'm rambling a bit, but I wanted to get this down for my own benefit... while I still remembered and had a plan!
