# Why Doing Homework Is Harmful For Those Who Didn’t Understand The Main Idea Of The Lesson

If you don’t know what you are doing on your homework, it can be more harmful than good. This is because if a student doesn’t understand their homework, when they complete it then they won’t learn anything, which leads to them falling behind. But there are some things that students can do to ensure that they won’t fall behind and will know how to do their homework.

### How To Understand The Lesson

- The easiest way for a student to learn about their homework for that night is to pay attention in class. If you pay attention in class you will be able to learn the lesson and that is why teachers give homework, so you can practice what you learned in class.
- The next thing you can do is to take good notes. If you write down everything that you went over in class that day, you can refer to them later if you get stuck on your homework.
- Ask lots of questions and ask your teacher to give you more examples. For example if you are having problem in a math class and you don’t understand, then ask your teacher to do another problem to help you understand the problem. They will be more than happy to help you and other students might be confused as well and asking helps them too.
- Read all of the required reading as well. You are given reading for classes to help you understand the subject that you are covering. Reading all of the information and then applying it to your homework is a great way to understand the material. And again if you are confused on the text then ask for help.
- When you do your homework at home, skip problems that you don’t understand and come back to them after you completed the others. Doing the others might help you figure out how to do the problem that you didn’t understand the first time.
- If after you complete your homework and come back to the others you didn’t understand if you still are confused, save them. Go to school a little early and find your teacher and ask them to help you. If you do this or even come to class a little early and explain that you didn’t understand it, most teachers would be glad to help you.
