RSM Online Homework

We are very excited to continue the RSM Online Homework program, which currently supports all 4th through 10th grade algebra classes and 6th, 7th, and 10th grade geometry classes.

RSM Online Homework is an excellent tool and beneficial resource for students, parents, and teachers:

  • Students have the opportunity to identify and correct mistakes before turning in their homework to their teacher. As a result, students will develop better critical thinking skills and achieve higher grades.
  • Parents will stay informed about their child's progress through automatic notifications of the assignment status and the assignment grade.
  • Teachers can review the results of online assignments to determine which homework problems caused the most difficulty for students. Analysis of assignments allow teachers to better prepare lessons and use this information to modify the presentation of the material in class.

Please remember: teachers will still collect written homework to check your child’s thought process, to identify gaps in understanding, and to adjust homework grades. Make sure your child shows their work on paper and brings it to the classroom for the teacher's review.

If you have any questions regarding online homework please ask your teacher or office administration.

How It Works:

  • During the lesson the teacher assigns homework, which is due the following week.
  • The next day (often by noon), the parents and student receive a link to the electronic version of that same assignment. Students solve the homework on paper, enter their answers online and receive immediate feedback.
  • A reminder is sent to both parents and students if the online assignment has not been started within 4 days.
  • Parents will receive an email with the score of the assignment.

Skill Practice

Students can now work on mastering concepts at their own pace with our new feature: Skill Practice!

The Online Homework platform now provides practice assignments for students who want to improve their mastery on different topics. Skill Practice is optional, and students earn badges for completed assignments.

Each Skill Practice begins with an example problem and a clear step-by-step explanation of how to solve it. Students can choose which Skill Practice they want to work on from a list of available assignments. If a teacher has a specific skill he or she would like a student to practice, the teacher can recommend a certain Skill Practice.

Weekly Challenge (Formidable Quest)

Students in Honors-level classes who have mastered the concepts can now apply their skills in the new Weekly Challenge (Formidable Quest) feature!

After a student has completed his or her Online Homework assignment, he or she will be able to try the Weekly Challenge: a set of four problems based around an initial prompt or story. The questions are modeled after Olympiad problems in both style and level of difficulty.

There is one Weekly Challenge available for every weekly homework assignment, and students earn badges after completing them. While the challenges are not mandatory, students are strongly encouraged to try them and explore competition-style mathematical thinking!
