Once you go into your space and start working, try not to leave until you've got a break scheduled. If you want a quick snack or drink, get it now before you start. Hit the bathroom and make sure you'll be able to work for the amount of time before your next break, uninterrupted.

Spend less time on homework

How many times have you found yourself still staring at your textbook around midnight (or later!) even when you started your homework hours earlier? Those lost hours could be explained by Parkinson’s Law, which states, “Work expands to fill the time available for its completion.” In other words, if you give yourself all night to memorize those geometry formulas for your quiz tomorrow, you’ll inevitably find that a 30 minute task has somehow filled your entire evening.

We know that you have more homework than ever. But even with lots and lots to do, a few tweaks to your study routine could help you spend less time getting more accomplished. Here are 8 steps to make Parkinson’s Law work to your advantage:

1. Make a list

This should be a list of everything that has to be done that evening. And we mean, everything—from re-reading notes from this morning’s history class to quizzing yourself on Spanish vocabulary.

2. Estimate the time needed for each item on your list

You can be a little ruthless here. However long you think a task will take, try shaving off 5 or 10 minutes. But, be realistic. You won’t magically become a speed reader.

3. Gather all your gear

Collect EVERYTHING you will need for the homework you are working on (like your laptop for writing assignments and pencils for problem sets). Getting up for supplies takes you off course and makes it that much harder to get back to your homework.

The constant blings and beeps from your devices can make it impossible to focus on what you are working on. Switch off or silence your phones and tablets, or leave them in another room until it’s time to take a tech break.

5. Time yourself

Noting how much time something actually takes will help you estimate better and plan your next study session.

6. Stay on task

If you’re fact checking online, it can be so easy to surf on over to a completely unrelated site. A better strategy is to note what information you need to find online, and do it all at once at the end of the study session.

7. Take plenty of breaks

Most of us need a break between subjects or to break up long stretches of studying. Active breaks are a great way to keep your energy up. Tech breaks can be an awesome way to combat the fear of missing out that might strike while you are buried in your work, but they also tend to stretch much longer than originally intended. Stick to a break schedule of 10 minutes or so.

8. Reward yourself! 

Finish early? If you had allocated 30 minutes for reading a biology chapter and it only took 20, you can apply those extra 10 minutes to a short break—or just move on to your next task. If you stay on track, you might breeze through your work quickly enough to catch up on some Netflix.

Our best piece of advice? Keep at it. The more you use this system, the easier it will become. You’ll be surprised by how much time you can shave off homework just by focusing and committing to a distraction-free study plan.

How to Make Homework Less Work

Homework is your teachers' way of evaluating how much you understand of what's going on in class. But it can seem overwhelming at times. Luckily, you can do a few things to make homework less work.

Create a Homework Plan

Understand the assignment. Write it down in your notebook or planner, and don't be afraid to ask questions about what's expected. It's much easier to take a minute to ask the teacher during or after class than to struggle to remember later that night. 

If you have a lot of homework or activities, ask how long the particular homework assignment should take. That way you can budget your time.

Start right away. Just because it's called "homework" doesn't mean you have to do it at home. Use study periods or other extra time in your school day. The more you get done in school, the less you have to do at night.

Budget your time. If you don't finish your homework at school, think about how much you have left and what else is going on that day. Most high-school students have between 1 and 3 hours of homework a night. If it's a heavy homework day, you'll need to devote more time to homework. It's a good idea to come up with a homework schedule, especially if you're involved in sports or activities or have an after-school job.

Watch Where You Work

When you settle down to do homework or to study, where do you do it? Parked in front of the TV? In the kitchen, with the sound of dishes being cleared and your brothers and sisters fighting?

Find a quiet place to focus. The kitchen table was OK when you were younger and homework didn't require as much concentration. But now you'll do best if you can find a place to get away from noise and distractions, like a bedroom or study.

Avoid studying on your bed. Sit at a desk or table that you can set your computer on and is comfortable to work at. Park your devices while you study. Just having your phone where you can see it can be a distraction. That makes homework take longer.

Get to Work

Tackle the hardest assignments first. It's tempting to start with the easy stuff to get it out of the way. But you have the most energy and focus when you begin. Use this mental power on the subjects that are most challenging. Later, when you're more tired, you can focus on the simpler things.

Keep moving ahead. If you get stuck, try to figure out the problem as best you can — but don't spend too much time on it because this can mess up your homework schedule for the rest of the night. If you need to, ask an adult or older sibling for help. Or reach out to a classmate. Just don't pick someone you'll be up all night chatting with or you'll never get it done!

Take breaks. Most people have short attention spans. Sitting for too long without stretching or relaxing will make you less productive than if you stop every so often. Taking a 15-minute break every hour is a good idea for most people. (If you're really concentrating, wait until it's a good time to stop.)

Get It Ready to Go

When your homework is done, put it in your backpack. There's nothing worse than having a completed assignment that you can't find the next morning. Now you're free to hang out — without the guilt of unfinished work hanging over you.

Get Help When You Need It

Even when you pay attention in class, study for tests, and do your homework, some subjects seem too hard. You may hope that things will get easier, but most of the time that doesn't happen.

What does happen for many people is that they work harder and harder as they fall further and further behind. There's nothing embarrassing about asking for help. No one understands everything.

Start with your teacher or guidance counselor. Some teachers will work with students before or after school to explain things more clearly. But what if you don't feel comfortable with your teacher? If your school is big, there may be other teachers who know the same subject. Sometimes it just helps to have someone new explain something in a different way.

Ask a classmate. If you know someone who is good at a subject, ask if you can study together. This may help, but keep in mind that people who understand a subject aren't always good at explaining it.

Find a tutor. You'll need to talk to an adult about this because it usually costs money to hire a tutor. Tutors come to your home or meet you someplace like the library or a tutoring center. They work with students to review and explain things taught in the classroom. This gives you the chance to ask questions and work at your own pace. Your teacher or guidance counselor can help you find a tutor if you're interested.

Study Guides

How to Do Your Homework

Doing your homework can be frustrating or rewarding.  Most students jump right into their homework, become frustrated and stop studying.  These students usually go directly to the math problems and start working them without any preparation.  When they get stuck on one problem, they flip to the back of the text for the answer.  Then, they either try to work the problem backward, to understand the problem steps, or they just copy down the answer.

Other students go to the solution guide and just copy the steps.  After getting stuck several times, these students will inevitably quit doing their homework assignment.  Their homework becomes a frustrating experience, and they may even quit doing their math homework altogether.

To improve your homework success and learning, refer to the following 10 steps.

10 Steps to Doing Your Homework

Step 1 - Review the textbook material that relates to the homework.  A proper review will increase the chances of successfully completing your homework.  If you get stuck on a problem, you will have a better chance of remembering the location of similar problems.  If you do not review prior to doing your homework, you could get stuck and not know where to find help in the textbook.

Remember : To be successful in learning the material and in completing homework assignments, you must first review your textbook.

Step 2 - Review your lecture notes that relate to the homework.  If you could not understand the explanation of the textbook on how to complete the homework assignment, then review your related notes.

Remember : Reviewing your notes will give you a better idea about how to complete your homework assignment.

Step 3 - Do your homework as neatly as possible.  Doing your homework neatly has several benefits.  When approaching your instructor about problems with your homework, he or she will be able to understand your previous attempts to solve the problem.  The instructor will easily locate the mistakes and show you how to correct the steps without having to decipher your handwriting.  Another benefit is that, when you review for midterm or final exams, you can quickly relearn the homework material without having to decipher your own writing.

Remember : Neatly prepared homework can help you now and in the future.

Step 4 - When doing your homework, write down every step of the problem.  Even if you can do the step in your head, write it down anyway.  This will increase the amount of homework time, but you are over learning how to solve problems, which improves your memory.  Doing every step is an easy way to memorize and understand the material.  Another advantage is that when you rework the problems you did wrong, it is easy to review each step to find the mistake.

Remember : In the long run, doing every step of the homework will save you time and frustration.

Step 5 - Understand the reasons for each problem step and check your answers.  Do not get into the bad habit of memorizing how to do problems without knowing the reasons for each step.  Many students are smart enough to memorize procedures required to complete a set of homework problems.  However, when similar homework problems are presented on a test, the student cannot solve the problems.  To avoid this dilemma, keep reminding yourself about the rules, laws, or properties used to solve problems.

Example : Problem: 2(a + 5) = 0.  What property allows you to change the equation to 2a + 10 = 0?   Answer : The distributive property.

Once you know the correct reason for going from one step to another in solving a math problem, you can answer any problem requiring that property.  Students who simply memorize how to do problems instead of understanding the reasons for correctly working the steps will eventually fail their math course.

How to Check Your Answers

Checking your homework answers should be part of your homework duties.  Checking your answers can improve your learning and help you prepare for tests.

Check the answers of the problems for which you do not have the solutions.  This may be the even-numbered or odd-numbered problems or the problems not answered in the solutions manual.

First, check your answer by estimating the correct answer.

Example : If you are multiplying 2.234 by 5.102, estimate: because 2 times 5 is 10, the answer to 2.234 times 5.102 should by a little over 10 .

You can also check your answers by substituting the answer back into the equation or doing the opposite function required to answer the question.  The more answers you check, the faster you will become.  This is very important because increasing your answer checking speed can help you catch careless errors on future tests.

Step 6 - If you do not understand how to do a problem, refer to the following points.

Point 1 - Review the textbook material that relates to the problem.

Point 2 - Review the lecture notes that relate to the problem.

Point 3 - Review any similar problems, diagrams, examples or rules that explain the misunderstood material.

Point 4 - Refer to another math textbook, solutions guide, math computer program software or video tape to obtain a better understanding of the material.

Point 5 - Call your study buddy.

Point 6 - Skip the problem for now, but contact your tutor or math instructor as soon as possible for help.

Step 7 - Always finish your homework by successfully completing problems.  Even if you get stuck, go back and successfully complete previous problems before quitting.  You want to end your homework assignment with feelings of success.

Step 8 - After finishing your homework assignment, recall to yourself or write down the most important learned concepts.  Recalling this information will increase your ability to learn these new concepts.

Step 9 - Make up note cards containing hard-to-remember problems or concepts.  Note cards are an excellent way to review material for a test.

Step 10 - Getting behind in math homework is academic suicide.  Math is a sequential learning process.  If you get behind, it is difficult to catch up because each topic builds on the next.  It would be like going to Spanish class without learning the last set of vocabulary words.  The teacher would be talking to you using the new vocabulary, but you would not understand what was being said.

Take Control of Homework

So it doesn't control you.

Although very few students love homework, it does serve a purpose. Homework helps you:

Here are some tips to help you deal with homework more efficiently and effectively.

Set the Mood

Create a good study area with everything you need (for example, a calculator). If you don't have a quiet place at home, try your school or local library.

Know Where to Begin

Make a list of everything you need to do, and note all deadlines. Do the more difficult assignments first, so you don't have to face them at the end.

Study at the Same Time Every Day

Even if you don't have homework every night, use the time to review notes. If sitting down to work is part of your normal routine, you'll approach it with less dread. Also, you'll become a pro at using time productively.

Keep Things in Perspective

Know how much weight each assignment or test carries, and use your time accordingly.

Get More Involved

Keep your mind from wandering by taking notes, underlining sections, discussing topics with others or relating your homework to something you're studying in another class.

Organize the Information

People process information in different ways. Some people like to draw pictures or charts to digest information, others prefer to read out loud or make detailed outlines. Try to find the methods that work best for you. Ask your teacher for recommendations if you're having trouble.

Take Advantage of Any Free Time

If you have a study period or a long bus ride, use the time to review notes, prepare for an upcoming class or start your homework.

Study with a Friend

Get together with friends and classmates to quiz each other, compare notes and predict test questions. Consider joining a study group.


If you have concerns about the amount or type of homework you have, you may want to talk to your family, teachers or counselor. They can help you understand how much time you need to allot for homework and how to manage your tasks.

Celebrate Your Achievements

Reward yourself for hitting milestones or doing something well.
