View Resource Population Explosion Using an Exponential Function

This intermediate algebra lesson has students use data from the U.S. Census Bureau's website to explore population growth and exponential functions. The learning object demonstrates how these mathematical functions can be used in a real world situation. Student materials, which include a continuous change model worksheet and a constant rate growth model worksheet, can be found here (the fourth...

View Resource Population Change and Distribution: 1990 to 2000

This report, part of a series that analyzes population and housing data collected from the census of 2000, highlights population size and distribution changes between 1990 and 2000 in regions, states, counties, and large cities. Data, maps, and discussion are used to examine the size of the population increase, which states and regions experienced the largest growth, where the largest proportion...

View Resource World Population Growth

Created by Lang Moore and David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purpose of this module is to study the historical data on human population growth, and to compare the "natural" and "coalition" differential equation models as possible descriptions of the growth pattern. This is one within a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.

View Resource Analyzing Patterns of Human Development

In this lesson students will describe global spatial patterns of human development using HDI rankings. Students will complete a table of demographic data on selected countries so they can look for connections. Students will use that information to make comparisons and hypothesize reasons for the data. This resource includes both a teaching guide and student worksheets.

View Resource Francaphone Africa

Students will describe the geodemographics of former French colonies in Africa as defined by the human development index, population densities, birth and death rates, life expectancy. Students will compare the geospatial patterns of data with geospatial data for natural resource reserves on the African continent. Students will use this information to analyze and hypothesize, and/or make...
