New Math Lessons to Connect with Tonight's Debate and More

Looking for a math set to tie in with the presidential debate tonight? We've got you covered.

These statistics lessons use real stats from past U.S. presidential elections to help students notice and analyze relationships among voter registration, voter turnout, electoral votes, popular votes, and more. View lessons >>

You can also pair this set with lessons in other subjects for cross-curricular integration:

  • Voting (social studies): Should the United States consider modifying the way citizens elect their leaders?

And it's not just election season; flu season is coming, too. To help your students understand how quickly illness can spread--and how to stop it--use this new math literacy set:

Disease Networks: How can health officials prevent diseases from becoming pandemics? These lessons use scientific data about the rates at which diseases spread through populations and the efficacy of preventative measures and give students opportunities to use equations and functions to determine how quickly officials need to act in response.
