This week we learn all about ho the Framers resolved the conflict over representation in Congress.
The big states felt like they should have more power because they are bigger and have more people
The small states did not want to always 'out-voted' and trampled by the big states, they wanted all the states to be equal
By the end of this week, I will be able to explain why the states argued about representation in Congress.
