Are there any differences between these two forms?

I think it would be better if you wrote some sentences showing how you think they should be used.

Well,
1.I have shown my homework to the teacher
2.I have showed my homework to the teacher.

The point is that I really have no idea about differences between these two sentences. I don't even know whether it is possible at all to say "I have showed..."
So are both of the sentences correct?

'Have showed' is possible - there are 103 citations in COCA; however, 'have shown' is far morecommonly used - 5,346 COCA citations.
