BLOSSOMS - Mathematics of Voting

The goal of this video lesson is to teach students about new and exciting ways of holding an election that they may not be aware of. Students will learn three different methods of voting: plurality, instant runoff, and the Borda count. This lesson will show that not every voting system is perfect, and that each has its strengths and weaknesses.
