PASSING A BILL INTO A LAW ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION WITHIN 1,000
After being fiercely debated by the U.S. House of Representatives, the bill goes to a vote. Students use addition to calculate whether the bill passed with a majority vote. Upon learning that the bill did not pass but can be reintroduced, students do some research on past bills that were reintroduced. When the bill finally passes the U.S. Senate and is signed into law by the President, students create a report analyzing the productivity of the last four Congresses.
