Ways of Thinking: Make Connections
- Listen to your classmates and take notes on what you learned about population density.
As your classmates present, ask questions such as:
- What does a high population density number indicate?
- What does a low population density number indicate?
- Can a country with a large area have a high population density? How?
- Can a country with a small population have a high population density? How?
- Will the country with the largest population size always have the greatest population density?
- Why can’t you just compare areas (or populations) when determining crowdedness?
- When you divide the area by the number of people, what unit should you use? Why?
