Abstract: 
Who do your students think their homework is for? Does attaching credit to homework promote student understanding, or encourage students to find answers by whatever means necessary? Are they focused on calculating the answer, or seeing the big picture? Is their homework grade a true reflection of their own understanding of the material, or does it better reflect the understanding of their "support network"? In this workshop we will describe our efforts to improve student feedback and to promote good study skills in first and second year mathematics classes.
