That might work if the students are diligent about doing homework, but my guess is that most will just go through the motions of watching and not paying close attention. Others will skip it altogether and watch the Simpsons (or something similar) instead. Speaking of the Simpsons, I got an idea. What if Kahn teamed up with the people from the Simpsons to produce videos, then homework would be much more interesting! (See Simpsons math and/or science.)
