This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 9, Grade 6. In the previous activities, representatives ("advisors") were assigned to groups that couldn't be changed: schools. Often, the people in an area have similar opinions, so it's possible to design districts where you can reliably predict the outcomes. In this lesson, students use geometric reasoning about areas and connectedness to experiment with drawing districts in a way that predict the outcome of elections. This is often called gerrymandering.
