Question:

If you had to classify yourself as a rock, which of the 3 main types would you belong to and why?

Inactive

Answer:

I would classify myself as an igneous rock, and more specifically as an intrusive igneous rock. Igneous rocks form from solidifying magma (intrusive) or lava (extrusive). Extrusive rocks like pumice or obsidian tend to form from a sudden eruption followed by extremely quick cooling. I am much more like an intrusive igneous rock, such as granite, which forms more slowly. I am someone who infrequently loses her temper so I never "erupt," but rather build daily routines that bring about slower consistent change in my life.

Subject: Study Skills

Question:

You missed 3 days of classes because you were out sick and came back to discover you have a math test next week. In order to independently learn the material in a short amount of time, how do you prioritize your time?

Answer:

Because this is for a math class where I know the teacher, my first approach will be to ask them for a study guide or any insight into which materials will be on the test. Once I have established the material I am expected to know, I can draft my own study guide or outline. For a subject with concrete steps and equations, such as math or chemistry, it is best to write out each step in my own words first. I can take the original information from a textbook, the teachers' slides, or a classmate's notes, but it is crucial that I write them down in my own notebook and use my own words. At this point, color coding may be helpful. Once I have copied down each equation and process I need to know for the exam, I can move into taking practice problems. With only a couple days left until the exam, my priority will be to study the topics that will be heavily tested. As I gain confidence in more problem styles, I can concentrate my energy on practicing only the equations and problems that I still have difficulty with.

Question:

What are the effects on the unemployment rate if some people who were retired decide to rejoin their job and become employed again? What are the effects on the labor force participation rate?

Answer:

By moving from unemployed to employed, they decrease the unemployment rate. This is because they have always been considered part of the working-age group. Labor Force participation is found by dividing the total number of people employed by the overall labor pool. (employed/labor pool). If we look at this as a fraction, we increase the number of people employed in the numerator but the denominator stays the same. When our numerator increases, our final result is a larger total %. Thus, our labor force participation rate grows when retired workers re-enter jobs.
