I work as a remote tutor and help students understand hard concepts/problems in scientific fields in college/university/industry.
I am finding a real lack of originality in exercises assigned by teachers, who only copy and paste. This causes problems for my work because my students only have to find the question online. This lazy behaviour means that students forget everything and do not learn. It is even possible that I lose my job in the future because it is faster to copy and paste the solution from Google instead of solving the problem.
This Non Linear Equations Exercise is an example precalculus test from Cengage marked as a "hard question". If I Google the problem, I can see five identical answers, some free and some Cheggs/paid solutions. This Red Bull Fall Modelling Exercise Assignment is another example of a system control engineering assignment about red bull falls world record modelling with differential equations. Still the same, I search on Google and I find Felix Baumgartner Jump Model SOLVED.
Now, due to isolation because of the COVID-19 pandemic, lazy student behaviour has increased, as students now have internet access to solve their homework/tests, and can do so without knowing anything about the subject.
How are professionals/ethical teachers fighting this?
I am a tutor but I am also a continuously learning student for developing my career and I know that if others do the work for me I am not learning anything! As I said it is more easy to copy and paste the problems than solving.
