A new law mandates that, starting in 2005, schools that receive federal funds from the U.S. Department of Education "implement an educational program pertaining to the United States Constitution...." The U. S. Courts offer educational outreach resources, such as "Constitution Day is Every Day at the Federal Courts."

Appropriate activities in mathematics classes might involve:

  • time, dates
  • money, budget, value, amounts
  • numbers, population, percentages
