WHITFIELDS ELECTION 2012-2013

Discrete Math Class: 2013

THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE


538 Representatives Not Fully Democratic (not one-person, onevote) Based upon a Republic; Federal represents states, not people directly. Number of electors is determined through a mathematical process called Apportionment

CALCULATIONS
Number of students in each grade + Faculty/Staff = 468 Number of electors = 40 Standard divisor: 468 = 11.7 people per elector 40 Standard quotas = Pop. Each Grade Level + Faculty/Staff Standard Divisor (11.7)

CALCULATIONS (CONTINUED)
*Round the quotas using Geometric Mean Ex: The Geometric Mean of 4 and 5 = Square root of 4 x 5 = 4.472 If quota is above 4.472 the it goes to 5.0, if below to 4.0.

ELECTORS FOR THE 6TH GRADE


25 students 11.7 (standard divisor) Quota = 2.13 Geometric mean = 2.449 Electors for 6th Grade = 2

ELECTORS FOR THE 7TH GRADE


49 Students 11.7 (Standard Divisor Quota = 4.18 Geometric mean = 4.472 Electors for the 7th Grade = 4

ELECTORS FOR THE 8TH GRADE


52 Students 11.7 Quota = 4.44 Geometric mean = 4.47 Electors for the 8th Grade = 4

ELECTORS FOR THE 9TH GRADE


70 Students 11.7 Quota = 5.98 Geometric mean = 5.47 Electors for the 9th Grade = 6

ELECTORS FOR THE 10TH GRADE


59 Students 11.7 Quota = 5.04 Geometric mean = 5.47 Electors for the 10th Grade = 5

ELECTORS FOR THE 11TH GRADE


67 Students 11.7 Quota = 5.72 Geometric mean = 5.47 Electors for the 11th Grade = 6

ELECTORS FOR THE 12TH GRADE


56 Students 11.7 Quota = 4.78 Geometric mean = 4.47 Electors for the 12th Grade = 5

ELECTORS FOR THE FACULTY/STAFF


90 people 11.7 Quota = 7.69 Geometric mean = 7.47 Electors for the Faculty/Staff = 8
