Title: Mathematics Awareness Month 2008 PDF
Url: http://www.mathaware.org/index.html
Publisher: American Mathematical Society
Description: Voting is on the minds of many these days, including politicians, statisticians, policy wonks, and a number of talking heads. With that in mind, it's not surprising that the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics has offered up "Math and Voting" for the theme of Mathematics Awareness Month 2008. The site is full of compelling activities, contests, and thoughtful essays, and even those who feel some resistance to various forms of mathematics may find themselves completely won over. Visitors should click on the "Theme Essays" section to read insightful pieces like "Roles for Statisticians in Elections" by John S. Gardenier, D.B.A, and "Fair Majority Voting (or How to Eliminate Gerrymandering)" by Michel Balinski. After that, visitors can click through to the "Activities" area, where they can try different voting methods and watch and listen to talks on voting paradoxes and the mathematics of voting.
