    Is it correct to say:
    >I'm doing my homeworks.
    >I'm going to do my homeworks.

    Can I use the plural for homework to show that I have several kinds of homework to do?
    Is it common?

    Homework solo va en singular, siempre.
    I'm doing my math and science homework.
    Estoy haciendo my tarea de matematicas y ciencia. (Estoy haciendo mis tareas)

    As far as I know homework is an uncountable noun and has no plural.

    I'm doing / I'm going to do my homework

    I have never heard the word homework in the plural form (homeworks). The word I believe is collective. Homework can be one or many.

    Even if you have to do homework in several subjects, it is still called homework. You can say exercises or compositions. But you only say homework.

    "assignments" would be the word to use referring to more than just one homework...
