Lesson 6

Activity 1:  Logical Strategies: Who had the best one?

The project for last week required everyone to develop their own “winning strategy” for their chosen game. Who did the best job of it? How do we determine a winner?

Most elections are done by simply picking the winner based on whoever has the most first-place votes. But it this always the right thing to do?

As a group decide on who is the best winning strategy, then have a second election on where you want to go to eat afterwards to celebrate!

In a group of 2 or 3 people, brainstorm some ideas on other ways to choose a winner from an election that does NOT rely on simply the most first-place votes, then share your ideas with other groups.

Activity 2:  A Sampling of Different Voting Methods

In the Job aid you will see four different voting methods and four different criteria to determine if these methods are fair. Use this as a guide to discover more information about each and to consider the pros and cons of each.

See the Job Aid for details

Activity 3:  Voting Problems

Now that you have a few new voting methods under your belt, it’s time to vote on something! Try the reading guide and see if you can come up with the answers to these problems. Guide can be found in the Important Documents.

Project Assignment – Task 6: Can voting figure into a game effectively and still be fair?

Voting is always a hot-button issue, but is it fun? Is it even fair? Your task this week is to take your chosen game and determine if voting plays a part in this game.*

  • If voting is a part of the game, how is it implemented? Does it add meaning to the game? Is it fair for all players involved?
  • If voting is not a part of the game, how could it be implemented? Specifically, could you adjust some of the rules or add new ones to bring voting into your game.

Either way, make sure that you are clearly communicate your ideas and that you are specific in your details.
