Unless he can get up and teach it better than the teacher, I wouldn't consider my son to have "mastered" anything to be honest with you. Yes, out of respect for the teacher and fairness to the other students, my child will always complete the work that he is asked to do, especially if it is a graded assignment. Good grades=scholarships=me not having to pay any extra for their college! The more opportunities to make a good grade, the better. He'll still do his homework, regardless of whether or not it is graded though.

Yes, I do make my children do their homework. At my girls school if a child does not do homework they have to sit during recess. Even if your son mastered the subject teaching him to be responsible is very important. Homework is usually a review in what the child learned in school, if it's too easy for your son still have him do it. I would also talk to his teacher and ask for more challenging homework.
