    A student does his/her homework. That is a set expression just like: To do laundry, to do housework, etc.

    To do the homework.

    "Make" is a verb whose meaning is realted to "create".

    You don't "create" the homework (obvious reasons xD, a teacher gives you the homework), you "do" the homework (after receiving it).

    I think that's the reason. But, you should wait until a native speaker answer your cuestion.
    My dear friends, just till now I know that it could be said in both ways, even if I percieve isn't correct, but I don't know why?
    The WR dictionary doesn't help me so much to clear this doubt.
