Up2d8 maths

The fortnightly Up2d8 maths resources explore a range of mathematical themes in a topical context. The resource is not intended to be a set of instructions but rather a framework which you can personalise to fit your classroom and your learners.

The inauguration of Barack Obama as 44th President of the USA will be a memorable event. Here is an opportunity to use the context of this high profile event to understand the role of mathematics in the foundations of a democratic society. This Up2d8 Maths resource, set in the context of the US Election 2008, explores the mathematics involved in the electoral process of the USA and to contrast this with the ‘first past the post’ system used in British General Elections. Students will have the opportunity to consider the role of the individual within the democratic process and how their vote contributes to the overall result. (Pupils will have an opportunity to consider a different electoral system with an Up2d8 maths resource to be published to coincide with the European Elections in June 2009).

This resource is not year group specific and so will need to be read through and possibly adapted before use. The way in which you choose to use the resource will enable your learners to access some of the Key Processes from the Key Stage 3 Programme of Study.
