PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this Social Studies (and Math) group project, students will be challenged to map out a path to the presidency (using the latest polls and projections) for the candidate they feel will be the next U.S. President. Students will use the Internet to analyze state-by-state polls to make a prediction on the Election Day results. My students are working on this project this week and they love its "real world" application. My colleagues have told me that every four years my students will look back on this project as the foundation for their understanding of the Electoral College and how a president is chosen, and why math matters so much in politics. (Oh, the only answer that I accept for #13 is 100% - "chance" versus "likelihood" argument. #2 = 11; #4 = 39; the rest are open-ended.) Could you imagine the life-long memory for those students who guess all 50 states correctly? Or even for those who came so close and predicted 48 or 49 states?
