TechMAP TEST PREP
Vocational and Technical Applications 
$89.00

Covering topics from Algebra I to Precalculus, TechMAP modules show high school students real, immediate uses for mathematics.
All students MUST PASS the same standardized tests in order to graduate and succeed. All 22 TechMAP modules show tangible, realworld applications of the material on these exams, driving home required math skills.
The mathematics required by state tests is taught in algebra and geometry courses, but for many students this is not enough. TechMAP modules demonstrate these skills in vocational fields; they help reinforce existing mathematics courses through actual career activities. These modules are selfcontained with exercises, teacher notes, handouts, etc., and can be used individually or together. Each module takes one to three weeks of classroom time. Learn More 
Consortium PullOut NEW 2010 Edition 
$119.00

Written by high school teachers and mathematicians, each PullOut lesson contains a reproducible classroom activity centered on a realworld modeling problem. Included are math concepts traditionally taught in high school over a wide range of applications including genetics, defense systems, voting, environmental issues, and more.
Available for the first time all 88 PullOuts from 1985 to 2010 on one CDROM. Learn More 
Casting Your Ballots: Elections


The power to elect officials is the power to change the world, but the mathematics of voting extends far beyond the notion of majorityrule. This election year, use COMAP materials to explore this fascinating process with your students.
The candidate with the most votes wins an election. Simple, right? Wrong. The whole story has as much to do with voting methods as voting numbers .
Casting Your Ballots: Elections is a new multimedia tool from COMAP that allows students to make connections to current events. Both CDROM and DVD components contain materials that help students address complex questions that are a very real part of our political system.
• How can different candidates win the same election, depending on which voting method is used? Students examine methods such as Borda, Condorcet, and plurality with runoff.
• How does mathematics define fairness? Can an election process be totally fair?
• What is power ? Explore the notion of “dummies,” the Banzhaf index, coalitions, and how apparently equitable systems can easily turn out to be lopsided and unfair.
As the elections progress and dominate the headlines, students will have a deep understanding of what is happening in the world around them. Learn More

Casting Your Ballots: Elections II

$39.99

What is a good way for a group to make a democratic decision? Mathematical modeling is essential in answering this question. In this unit, which is developed from COMAP's Mathematics: Modeling Our World curriculum, students:
. Are introduced to mathematical modeling in the engaging context of elections;
. Develop their skills in number sense and percentages;
. Learn about new representations, including preference diagrams and digraphs, and current election reform topics such as instant runoffs and approval voting;
. Use software (for PC and Mac) to conduct their own elections and explore "what if" questions with election data.
A video adds historical (1992 election) and contemporary (Nielsen ratings) background. Supplemental material includes several articles from Consortium on elections and related topics.
