SUMMARY:GEMS Workshop: The Mathematics of Reapportionment and Census Data with Professor Adolfo Rumbos of Pomona College
DESCRIPTION:TOPIC: The Mathematics of Reapportionment and Census Data \nEvery ten years\, the United States Census Bureau conducts a count of all persons living in the United States; one of those population counts will be carried out this year (2020). This Census is mandated by the US Constitution; it counts all people residing in the United States\, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. The data collected from the Census are used to make sure that everyone is equally represented in our political system and that government resources are allocated fairly. For instance\, Census counts are used to determine how many congressional seats a state receives. This is known as reapportionment. In this workshop we explore the Mathematics of reapportionment. If time permits\, we also explore how statistical sampling can be used to estimate population sizes. \nWHAT IS GEMS: \nThe Gateway to Exploring Mathematics program (GEMS) is a series of workshops that helps excite the interests and curiosity of young students in mathematics and science \nGEMS meets once a month on a Saturday morning from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM \nGEMS is designed to reach 8th\, 9th and 10th grade students who have an interest in mathematics and science \nParticipants interact with excellent and award winning faculty\, staff\, students and alumni from each of the seven Claremont Colleges \nSPRING 2020 DATES: \nFebruary 1\, 2020 \nMarch 7\, 2020 \nApril 18\, 2020 \nREGISTRATION: \nTo register for our March 7th worshop\, please click on the following link: \nhttps://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScDQukTH3LQvpAq_IYysKKol6O4i-ORptv7IbU9lRBWgzYmhA/viewform?usp=pp_url \nANY QUESTIONS: \nPlease contact our 2019-2020 GEMS coordinator\, Josh Kiernan at joshua.kiernan@cgu.edu \n
