Unit 9, Lesson 6# Picking Representatives

Open Up Resources 95 min(s)

Let's think about fair representation. The five activities in this third lesson on the mathematics on voting return to the situation of an election with two choices. However, rather than directly choosing the result, voters elect representatives, each of whom then casts a single vote for all the people they represent. The activities explore ways to "share" the representatives fairly between groups of people.
