"[FONT="] If a student is at school for six hours per day (or [/FONT][FONT="]¼ [/FONT][FONT="]of the day), that averages out to about eleven & 1/2 hours of the day available towards completing their homework or other activities. This may, at first, appear to be false. However, I’ve calculated this information by subtracting the average 5-6 hours that a typical student will sleep, 10-40 minutes of getting to/from school, eating for 15-30 minutes, & using the restroom/brushing their teeth for 10-15 minutes total. This adds up to 5.58 – 7.41 hours. [/FONT] [FONT="]5.58 + 6 (hours of the school day) = 11.58. 24 – 11.58 = [/FONT][FONT="]12.42[/FONT][FONT="].[/FONT]
[FONT="]7.41 + 6 (once again, hours of the school day) = 13.41. 24 – 13.41 = [/FONT][FONT="]10.59[/FONT][FONT="].[/FONT]
The median of these two numbers = 11.505, or as I stated above, [FONT="]eleven & 1/2 hours. Thus, we have 11.5 hours in a single school-day to do homework, disregarding other activities, detentions, & irregularities (such as a late ride).
Well, I'm off to do 10-11 late Geometry assignments I have to turn in tomorrow [/FONT][FONT="][FONT="](No, really).
Good night, CAG's.
NOTE: The typical s[/FONT]leep range could/should likely be more-so around 5-7 or 6-8 hours. Most high-school students still do not get enough sleep, though:
