do now

Describe your ideal place to live.

  • Where is this place located (city, state, country, continent)?
  • Why do you want to live there?
  • What is the weather like there?
  • What kinds of physical and human characteristics exist in this place?

BIG IDEAHumans are not evenly distributed across the Earth. (There are two ways to examine pop. patterns – distribution and density.)
do now1

Answer the following question in a solid paragraph in your notebook:

What makes a location a good place to live?

Refer to physical (bodies of water, land forms, etc.) and human characteristics (cultural traditions and things humans made) as much as possible.

Stockholm, Sweden was voted the nicest city to live in (2009)

Do Now:
agenda

Catch-up lesson: Where people live and why

  • Q & A Review
  • Quest on Population
  • OT/start on homework

Stockholm, Sweden was voted the nicest city to live in (2009)

Agenda:
where do people live
The places people live are called ecumene regions, or places permanently inhabited by humans.

Why?

People tend to live

  • Near water (oceans, rivers and lakes)
  • In temperate climates
Where do people live?
ecumene regions

Key Facts about the Ecumene:

  • Most of the world lives near the middle of earth – between the Tropic of Cancer to the Tropic of Capricorn
  • China is the most populous country
  • Africa is the fastest growing continent
  • ¾ of the world lives on less that 5% of the earth’s surface
Ecumene Regions
where do people avoid
The places people do not live are called nonecumene regions, or places not inhabited by humans.

Why?

People don’t want to live where it’s:

  • Too dry
  • Too wet
  • Too cold
  • Too high
Where do people avoid?
nonecumene regions

Antarctica

  • Sahara Desert
  • Australian Outback
  • Far north of Arctic Circle
Nonecumene Regions
three types of population density
Arithmetic – total number of people divided by total land area(also called population density)

Physiological – number of people supported by unit of land suited for agriculture (arable land)

Agricultural- number of farmers per area of arable land

Three Types of Population Density
calculating population density also called arithmetic density

Number of people

Population density =___________________

Land area (sq. miles)

For the United States…

300 million people

___________________ = 82 people/sq. mi.

3.7 million sq. miles

Calculating Population Density (also called arithmetic density)
independent work time

Answering document based questions about population distribution and density

  • Use the map series in your text book to help you answer the questions
  • Use complete sentences!
  • Expectation: silent work time, raise your hand if you need help!
