MGF 1107 GRADED HOMEWORK PROJECT Since this assignment is graded, you may not consult with other students . Doing so is considered cheating and will be dealt with as such. I will be happy to help with any problems you are having. It should be done on Excel 2003 or 2007. You must label what each column represents. I want to receive two tables, one for each apportionment method and formatted to fit to one page each. Each table should have a title that includes the method used and the census year upon which it is based, all columns clearly labeled, the apportionment, the bias calculation, and who the bias favors. On the spreadsheet, let the first tab store the raw census data; then copy that data onto the second and third worksheet tabs, labeling each tab with the method being used. Format each of the two worksheets in an easily understood manner and formatted to fit to one page with a title at the top. Appearance counts! On a Word document, compare and contrast the two methods; e.g., which states’ apportionments differ in this census, what problems does each method have, to what flaws or paradoxes is it subject, etc. Your papers should incorporate proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Make sure your name is included on both the spreadsheet and the Word document. Email the package to [email protected] by noon, October 15. This project will be averaged with your other online homework and count as 15% of your grade.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
