The Virginia Plan wanted representation proportional to the population of the state. It proposed a bicameral legislature (I think. Don't remember. It's been a long time!) in which states got seats in both houses based on how large their population was. The way it's easy to remember is that Virginia was the biggest state in the country at the time, so naturally they thought the state with the biggest population should have the most votes!
