I'm trying to figure out what's the norm for homework (both content and extent) in middle school. I have a student who is doing classroom math and 1/2 hour of homework that she learned in the 4th grade while her counterparts at another middle school are spending 2 hours on exponents. I know its just the start of the year and there's probably some initial assessment and review going on, but at what point do i get concerned that my child is not being challenged? One note: my child's school does not have a separate class for gated kids. Perhaps this is the distinction?
