I can analyze graphical data in a J or S shaped curve
I can explain the reasons for the human population growth
I can explain why the predicted human population growth rate is dropping
I can interpret age structure diagrams and correlate different diagrams with different types of
countries
Ex. Rapid growth in a developing or third world country
Ex. Negative or no growth with an older developed country such as the US
