Voting Theory, Math and Congress - 20002

Not all elections are determined by simply counting who gets the most votes and declaring that person the winner. Mathematical theories of voting can create alternative voting methods that may then be applied to congressional elections as well as to the everyday functioning of the legislative branch. These courses, meant to be taken simultaneously, will explore the relationship between theory and practice through a joint project in which students from both classes work together on a simulation of a political campaign and election.
