integrated computational thinking


The learner will observe patterns in voting districts and create their own voting districts. (estimated 45 min)

Learning Objectives

By the end of this activity, learners will be able to...

  • Describe why gerrymandering happens
  • Propose solutions to gerrymandered districts


  • Patterns: Repeating similarities among objects, ideas, and problems
  • Data: Quantitative or qualitative information (e.g., text, symbols, etc.) collected for analysis
  • Pattern Recognition: Finding patterns among decomposed problems that can help us solve more complex problems
  • Gerrymandering: the manipulation of voting districts to favor one political party
