Bring the 2016 Election into your classroom with a few authentic challenges that will push your students citizenship and build Election vocabulary across contents in this 21st Century Math Project! It's so authentic Trump and Clinton might throw down right in the middle of your classroom. Okay not really, but it's still cool!
Students will use their skills with percents and data analysis to solve authentic election problems.
In this 18 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, handout resources for students to use, and an answer key. In all it is two different assignments --
-- "Battleground States" -- students will analyze tables and graphs of recent Presidential Election to understand the difference between "safe" states, "battleground" states and the differences in funding and campaign stops between them. Why exactly does Obama and Romney practically live in Ohio and Florida? Students will discover this for themselves.
-- "The Electoral College" -- students use a hypothetical Alternative Method to decide the President! Many take issue with the Electoral College so students will compare the actual results with the Alternative to see if there is any difference in who would have been President!
