Answers to Karen Roothan’s Algebra Quiz #1:
I can easily earn this amount of money pulling weeds without having to dress up or wear a bra. These figures may be too high for teachers who have to grade large amounts of written work, such as English Composition teachers. I would love to see figures from other schools as well. Let’s call them out on this big time and let our students know just where their tuition dollars are NOT going.
1a) 66 hrs b) 6 hrs c) 11 hrs d) 83 hrs, $20.48 per hour
2a) 33 hrs b) 55 hrs c) 88 + 83 = 171 hrs, $9.94 per hour
3a) 66 hrs b) 110 hrs c) 176 + 83 = 259 hrs, $6.56 per hr
4) Answers will vary
Note: these figures are based on East-West University in Chicago.
