Gerrymandering and Geometry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Every 10 years the US congress re-apportions the House of Representatives. Once the House is re-apportioned then state legislatures re-draw the districts. The shapes of these districts can be very controversial and sometimes law suits are filed arguing that there has been gerrymandering. In this session we will talk about some of the geometry of determining if a district has been gerrymandered. Typically students can develop some of the standard methods on their own. We will look at some ideas that my students have proposed and compare those with what have been used in the courts.
