Topic: Gerrymandering for budding district map drawers
We will learn the mathematical tools of packing and cracking, and use them to alter election results by re-drawing electoral district maps. We will also discuss the merits and shortcomings of the “efficiency gap”, a formula that attempts to detect and reject unfair maps.
