In this learning situation, students create an algebraic model to predict how much money a starting teacher will make next year. Once the calculation is complete, students interpret their results by determining whether or not the salary they calculated is fair. To answer this question, students are asked to compare their calculated salary with salaries in different job sectors and provinces.
The goal of this problem is to give students the opportunity to produce an algebraic model within a real world context. Students are also expected to interpret the values produced by their algebraic model.
This learning situation is guided and should be given at the beginning of the course. To do this problem successfully students need to be able to produce an algebraic model given two data points.
