        Real-World Proportional Relationships: Gender Wage Gap

        Using this infographic, learn how wage equity today compares with data from 50 years ago, at the dawn of the equal pay movement. The accompanying classroom activity invites students to explore the change in the gender wage gap from 1965 to 2010. First, students will learn how the wage gap can be calculated from different median salaries for men and women. Then, students will consider the real monetary impact of increasing equity in wages—and will look to the graph for clues about when the wage gap will be eliminated, if at all. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
