Each month, elementary teachers receive a problem, along with suggested instructional notes and often a student activity sheet. Teachers are to use the problem in their own classrooms and report solutions, strategies, reflections, and misconcep┬Čtions to the journal audience. November is election month in the United States. Every four years, opportunities arise for classroom discussions related to selecting the next U.S. president. In elementary school classrooms, mock elections can provide data to use for many mathematical explorations and graphical representations.
