Love it or hate it, homework is an important part of every student’s education. Working and studying at home reinforces what children learn in the classroom, which helps them remember the information better, score higher on tests and enjoy more success.

Homework also provides valuable skills students need to succeed both in school and in the world of work, including:

  • Self-discipline
  • Self-confidence
  • Commitment to tasks; Initiative
  • Organization and time management
  • skills; and
  • Responsibility

For younger students, it’s important for them to see that learning happens in a variety of settings, not just at school.

Homework in the early grades promotes good attitudes and study habits and has a long-term effect you’ll see when your child moves into higher grades.



Homework Help is a free mathematics tutoring online program. It features real-time tutoring with Ontario teachers using interactive tools Sunday to Thursday nights from 5:30 – 9:30 pm.
