Mathalicious: Payday

Why do different jobs pay so differently? 

On one hand, this seems unfair. On the other hand…it still seems unfair. But there’s a reason some jobs pay so much better than others.

In this lesson, students use unit rates to compare how much different professions make per year/day/hour and discuss ways to possibly equate compensation with social contribution.
