Cross-Curricular Election Maths: Voting Systems

Cross-Curricular Election Maths: Voting Systems

Ideal for use in election years, particularly when things happen like Trump becoming president, despite not winning the popular vote. This is a differentiated lesson looking at the use of different voting systems, their advantages and disadvantages. In this lesson, students will: - Look at the mechanics of different voting systems including: First past the post, alternative voting, BORDA count, weighted BORDA count and a two-round system. - Try out the voting systems to see who would win in a hypothetical situation - Think about how they would vote tactically in each voting system to block someone from getting in - Consider the advantages/disadvantages of each. - Reflect on their learning To really 'show' that there is no perfect system, the votes have been designed so that using each voting system produces a different winner!

Math Literacy and the Common Core:  Writing Your Way to Understanding  Common Core Concepts  3rd and

Math Literacy and the Common Core: Writing Your Way to Understanding Common Core Concepts 3rd and

Math Literacy and the Common Core is intended to help educators understand the link between literacy skills and learning math concepts. It addresses the misconception that math learning process is a journey resting on the shoulders of students and that it is up to students to determine whether or not math will be mastered. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. An abundance of research supports the assertion that teachers should be shouldering most of the math learning responsibility. Thus, we must recognize…it is teachers who are responsible for student learning as well as for student success in mastering the standards. This book is intended to be a roadmap for teachers to that end. It is a starting point for teachers to collaborate within their own geographic areas and determine authentic standards-based, hands-on lessons that will engage each set of students and move them toward math mastery. This collaboration, coupled with in-depth lesson study, is a key component for student learning. Teachers collaborating and disaggregating lessons are keys to unlocking the doors to student mastery. Unfortunately, not enough emphasis is usually put on these keys. If our math programs are ever to be truly world class – this has to change. The bottom line: the majority of students are not going to understand math until we, as teachers, learn to teach math differently. Let Math Literacy and the Common Core be your starting point to those ends. Intended to be a workbook.

SIMPLE AND COMPLEX PRINTABLE BATTLESHIP GAME FOR STUDENTS

SIMPLE AND COMPLEX PRINTABLE BATTLESHIP GAME FOR STUDENTS

Battleship is a classic game of strategy and logic kids of all ages love to play. Best of all, it is a great to play in your maths class as it teaches students how to use acartesian planeand understand how to use co-ordinates on a grid. I have made up two PDF versions of the classic battleship game you can download and print The first one is the traditional battleship game and the second one is the slightly more advanced 4 quadrant version of Battleship which is more suited to secondary students. "You just sunk my Battleship!" Enjoy
