This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 9, Grade 6. This activity introduces the question for the last five activities in the voting unit: How can we fairly share a small number of representatives between several groups of people? The first question of the activity asks students to distribute computers to families with children. In this question, computers can be shared so that the same number of children share a computer in each family. In the second question, fair sharing is not possible, so students need to decide and explain which alternative is the fairest, or the least unfair.
