Product Description
FREE #kindnessnation #weholdthesetruths HIGH SCHOOL MATH activity for the 1-1 classroom! Great cross-curricular activity for election day, inauguration day, etc.

This Google Drive activity explores the relationship between state population and the number of electoral votes. Students will use linear regression within google sheets to come up with the regression equation and interpret the slope and y-intercept (also discovering every state is given two votes before adding extra votes based on population). Students will dig deeper by looking at the number of people per vote in each state, to discover that the weight of a person's vote in one state slightly differs from the weight of a person's vote in another state. This is an important note, since it makes it possible for someone to lose the popular vote but WIN the electoral vote! Students will get a history lesson and actually understand the math behind the election through this activity! Be prepared for an engaging lesson, lively discussion, and lots of questions from your students :) You will love it!
