Why do We have Homework?

Have you ever heard the saying ‘practice makes perfect’ well that is the basic purpose of homework. By doing homework you are putting what it is you have been taught into practice which helps you to get better at it. Ask yourself this question, would you want to have surgery performed by a doctor who never did their homework or got the chance to practice their skills until the day they showed up to do your surgery? Well that is exactly the reason why we have homework.
