Biden/Trump Lawn Sign Math Project

Hello Friends! We have lots of updates from Deer Country Kin!

We will be posting a bunch of new stories in days ahead - we haven't had much time to do it lately - we apologize for not being in better touch and look forward to sharing our recent news.

We are in the midst of a fun bar graph math project. Mia has been doing the adding. She's learning about bar graphs. Here are the kids explaining the project:

Here is the bar graph. We haven't completed because every time we drive to Portland we can't keep count!!! We count every sign we see - not just the houses. So if someone has ten signs on their lawn we count them all. Next, we are going to ask YOU (our readers) and our kids who won the election based on our bar graph. Of course, we'll want you to find total count vs town-by-town results. Can you tell us who won???

Then when the election happens, we'll go to each Town Clerks' website to see if the lawn sign results on our bar graph align with the results in the election. We'll keep you posted!

Hi EMma maybe each sign in the yard if for each voter in the house. but we really counted all the signs because Mia was practicing math.


Your project inspired me to count signs between Vineland NJ, and Bridgeton NJ, (the county seat of Cumberland county). I took one route over, and one route back. Route over 12.1 miles: 11 signs Biden, 2 signs Trump. Route back 19.1 miles 2 signs Biden, two signs Trump. Both routes were plastered with local election signs and congressional election signs. Which signs are where on various routes Maine or New Jersey raises many answers. Will follow your interesting project.


Glad to participate. Looks like folks from Lovell to Stoneham, Bethel or Stow would vote for Trump. However if we let in all those folks from Lovell to anywhere else its Biden. Let's let everyone vote and elect Biden.


What a great project! Anna and Mia, your explanations in the video are so clear! Sarah, I see you're keeping close watch on progress - well done! Question: why count every sign you see rather than the number of houses where you see the signs? What difference could that make?
