7 Billion…and Growing
How many people are on the earth? How fast is the population growing? When will we run out of the resources needed to sustain life on our planet? Students explore these and other questions about growth in “7 Billion . . . and Growing.” They use data, measurement, unit analysis, percentages, and statistical analysis to investigate tasks about sharing earth’s resources, population growth, and growth models.
