You will be submitting a mind map using the Google extension MindMup 2. On the bubble mind map, answer the following questions:
What is the Electoral College?
Why does the Electoral College exist?
What is "popular vote"?
How does a candidate get a state's electoral votes?
What determines the number of votes a state has?
How many votes does it take to win the Presidency?
What are electors called if they don't vote for the candidate the state voted for?
Who becomes President if there is a tie or there isn't a majority? How is it decided?

Finally, answer the question "Should the U.S. keep the electoral college?"

To open up the mind map on Google Drive, go to the apps section in the top right corner when you have GD open. You will then select Create Map for GD.

Number Mania: Dianne Feinstein in Google Classroom

Number Mania: Dianne Feinstein

Your goal for this assignment is to find five number-based facts related to California Senator Feinstein who unfortunately passed away this morning. 
These facts can include dates, statistics, number counts, etc. 

Example: Obama gave 212 pardons in his role as President over the course of 8 years. 

You will be making an infographic (images combined with your facts) in order to show us a representation of the power of the President. You can have specific themes such as a medical theme (military, diplomacy, economics, political, etc). 

Try to find facts that are not well known or something interesting-- I do not want to see what date she was born or died.
