### Whitfield’s Election 2012

1. 1. WHITFIELD’S ELECTION 2012-2013 Discrete Math Class: 2013
2. 2. THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE• 538 Representatives• Not Fully Democratic (not one-person, one- vote)• Based upon a Republic; Federal represents states, not people directly.• Number of electors is determined through a mathematical process called “Apportionment”
3. 3. CALCULATIONSNumber of students in each grade + Faculty/Staff = 468Number of electors = 40Standard divisor: 468 = 11.7 people per elector 40Standard quotas = Pop. Each Grade Level + Faculty/Staff Standard Divisor (11.7)
4. 4. CALCULATIONS (CONTINUED)*Round the quotas using “Geometric Mean”…Ex: The Geometric Mean of 4 and 5 = Squareroot of 4 x 5 = 4.472If quota is above 4.472 the it goes to 5.0, ifbelow to 4.0.
5. 5. ELECTORS FOR THE 6 TH GRADE 25 students 11.7 (standard divisor) Quota = 2.13 Geometric mean = 2.449 Electors for 6th Grade = 2
6. 6. ELECTORS FOR THE 7 TH GRADE 49 Students 11.7 (Standard DivisorQuota = 4.18Geometric mean = 4.472Electors for the 7th Grade = 4
7. 7. ELECTORS FOR THE 8 TH GRADE 52 Students 11.7Quota = 4.44Geometric mean = 4.47Electors for the 8th Grade = 4
8. 8. ELECTORS FOR THE 9 TH GRADE 70 Students 11.7Quota = 5.98Geometric mean = 5.47Electors for the 9th Grade = 6
9. 9. ELECTORS FOR THE 10 TH GRADE 59 Students 11.7Quota = 5.04Geometric mean = 5.47Electors for the 10th Grade = 5
10. 10. ELECTORS FOR THE 11 TH GRADE 67 Students 11.7Quota = 5.72Geometric mean = 5.47Electors for the 11th Grade = 6
11. 11. ELECTORS FOR THE 12 TH GRADE 56 Students 11.7Quota = 4.78Geometric mean = 4.47Electors for the 12th Grade = 5
12. 12. ELECTORS FOR THE FACULTY/STAFF 90 people 11.7Quota = 7.69Geometric mean = 7.47Electors for the Faculty/Staff = 8
