How do I explain Sparx homework to students?

We would suggest explaining homework to students in the following way:

“Your homework assignment will contain questions that should take around 60 minutes. Your homework is made up of personalised questions that will help you develop your learning in maths. This will include topics you have covered within the past week and some older material for you to revise. 

You should be able to complete all of these questions without too much support, however if there is a question which you are finding hard to complete, we would recommend watching the video. If you are still unable to solve the question, move on to the next one and talk to your teacher before the hand-in day.”
