  • New Jersey Plan proposes that we use a single-chamber congress in which each state had one vote.
  • The Virginia Plan will give states a number of representatives in Congress based on their population.
  • Did you hear? States now have equal representation in one house of the legislature and representation based on population in the other house thanks to the Great Compromise!
  • They also made a compromise where every 5 enslaved people counted as 3 in the state's population!
  • The Separation of Powers is a division of power among the three branches of the federal government under the Constitution.
  • The Executive Branch of the government carries out and enforces the laws. The Judicial Branch of the government interprets laws. The Legislative Branch of the government makes the laws.
  • Checks and Balances prevent any branch of the government from becoming more powerful than the other.
