The election season is a great time to put a different spin on mathematics. Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming October issue of Mathematics Teacher. This special election issue will help bring the election of 2012 straight to your classroom! Discussion of various apportionment methods shows that the election of 2000 would have had a different outcome had a different method been applied. Also included is a question library for classroom voting. Until then, check out NCTM's election resources for all grade levels.
