Fall Football Lecture: Can Math Help Fix Bugs in Democracy?

November 11th, 2017, 12:14pm by Sam Wang


During college football season, the Princeton Alumni Association hosts fall lectures for people who come back to campus for the home games. This morning I gave the pregame lecture for the Yale game. My topic: can math help repair partisan gerrymandering and the Electoral College? Great audience, great questions.

There is no video available. However, the slides are here. The real-life experience is possible, but only if I come visit!

    Well done and thanks for posting. Really a call to arms, backed by data, to eliminate Gerrymandering.
