    homework

    If the noun "homework" is uncountable (can it ever be countable?), then the sentence "The teacher has assigned 2 homeworks for next class" is wrong. How could I rephrase it?

    Re: homework

    Homework can be a noun AND homework can also be an adjective.
    There is no plural of homework.

    The teacher assigned homework.

    She gave two homework assignments.

    I must do three pages of homework.

    The homework tonight is three pages.

    I have homework in three classes.
