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!

Minimum Connectors (Prim's and Kruskal's algorithms)

Minimum Connectors (Prim's and Kruskal's algorithms)

A sorting task suitable for students studying Decision 1. Cut out the networks and statements and sort them into a large copy of the table (I used magic whiteboard sheets on the desk). Ensure students can justify their solutions - get them to swap partners and explain their choices. Multiple solutions are possible!
