    a(the) science homework

    In this context, is "a science homework" or "the science homework" proper? Or just "science homework" without any article?

    s5)Emily : What is that, Toby?
    Toby: It's a model airplane. I made it for a(the) science homework. Did I do it well?
    Emily : Yeah. I think it's very nice!

    I'd use no article or 'my'. I wouldn't use 'the', though it's not wrong. 'A' is possible in some contexts.

    I would use "my" there.
