Population Growth
This on-line project is part of the Center for Improved Engineering and Science Education (CIESE) program, which has developed internet activities for the elementary, middle, and high school level student. This series of activities explores the mathematical and environmental aspects of population growth. Using archived census and demographic data as well as up-to-the-minute population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau, students learn how to model population growth and study the implications of a changing population. The project provides instructions, activities, back-up information, data links, reference materials, on-line help, and an instructor guide.
