Product Description
We all know that voting is one of the most important things that a person can do. Election results can often be expressed as fractions and pie charts so it is a natural extension for a class project!

In this 16 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, two practice assignments and one project.

-- In “Voting Issues” students will review word problems where multiplying fractions by whole numbers is necessary. Percent problems are included in the end and I prefer to teach this as a fraction as opposed to decimal.

-- In “Student Council” students practice more complex problem solving with multiplying fractions. In some cases students will need to multiply a fraction by a fraction and in others by a whole number. In each case students are asked to combine the results of multiple polls into one.

-- and finally in “Youth at the Booth” students design their own brief survey. Students will use their survey results to write fractions and calculate angles in a pie chart. Students will construct up to three pie charts (your choice!). Students will first have to write questions (and get approved by you). They will solicit classmates to take their survey, calculate their results and draw colorful pie charts. To cap it off they can present to the class if you’d like! A rubric is included.
