You should make it a point to get to know your child's teacher at the beginning of the year. If you have any questions throughout the year (including questions about homework or assignments), you should feel comfortable asking the teacher for clarification. Be sure to ask what his or her preferred method of contact is, along with how often the teacher hopes to engage with parents. You don't want to seem too overwhelming - instead, know the correct protocols of interacting with your son or daughter's teacher. If your child is not given a class syllabus, then ask the teacher if he or she has anything in writing that allows you to follow what your child will learn daily and what homework will be given each night. The teacher will more than likely understand that you are asking these questions to ensure your child learns as proficiently as possible.
