Population Density

Page history last edited by Julie Reulbach 10 years, 9 months ago

 With your partner, you are going to try and pick the five MOST dense prefectures of Japan by reading a map. 

 

  1. With you partner, pick the five Japan Prefectures that you think are the most densely populated using the maps.
     Pop Density Prefectures Comparison.pdf.   Write the names only on your sheet. Wait until I say GO.

 

DO NOT GO ON until instructed to do so.  :) 

 

 


 

 

  1. Write down the exact population and land area for your 5 prefectures using this data.   Japan Prefectures - Population and Land Area 
  2. Calculate the exact population density of your 5 prefectures.
  3. Rank them in order according to your estimate, putting the most dense prefectures first, and write them down on your list.

 


 Just for fun!

1.  Learn to pronounce the Japan Prefectures that you picked! 

 

 

2.  Study each of the maps below.  With your partner, write down a fact or two from the map that you find interesting. 

    1. Time Population Density Map - USA 
    2. USA Density Map  
    3. World Population Density Map  
    4. World Population Density by Country 

 

3.  Japan: Please read about prefectures and study the maps below.

    1. Japan's Prefectures 1 
    2. Japan's Prefectures 2
    3.  Maps of Japan (scroll down to the population density section)
    4. Population Density Map of Japan 
    5. Population Density Ranking of Japan's Prefectures 
    6. Interesting Site about the population of Japan

Population Density:

 

Assignment for Friday, September 14th

You will not work with your partner on this assignment.  It is an individual project and each student needs to make their own chart. 

 

Make a chart showing the prefecture and the population density of Japan.

  1. Duplicate the "Pop Density" sheet from the  Japan Prefectures by population density.

 

     2.  Chose the chart that you think best represents the population density to make a Population Density Chart of Japan's Prefectures.  
          Be sure to pick a chart where ALL of the Prefecture names are included.

 

     3.  Edit your chart so it looks nice and is informative.  

    1. Add a title to your chart.
    2. Make sure all of the prefectures are included.
    3. Make sure all of the prefecture names can be read (you may need to stretch the chart LONGWAYS). 
    4. Add a legend to your chart.

 

     4.  Add your chart to your wiki page on the MathReuls wiki.  Name your chart YourNamePopD before uploading it to the wiki.  
          If you forgot how to do this, please visit the Technology Help Page.
          ** After you insert your image, it may be VERY large.  You can resize your image if it is too LARGE by double clicking on the picture and typing in pixel width.  300 is usually a good number.  Click Save.

 

     5.  Please write a summary of your chart on your wiki page, explaining what population density is and relating that to Japan's Prefectures.

 

AFTER you have picked your countries and completed all calculations:

  1.  ENTER YOUR DATA INTO the GDoc HERE 

 

Actual Rankings:  How close where you?

  1. You will now enter the actual rank into your GDoc
  2. Find the ranks by clicking here  Japan Prefectures by population density
  3. Find the Density Ranking of the the Prefectures you selected.  Enter these numbers into the GDOC.

 

Make a chart showing the prefecture and the population density of Japan.

  1. Duplicate the "Pop Density" sheet from the  Japan Prefectures by population density.
  2. Chose the chart that you think best represents the population density to make a Population Density Chart of Japan's Prefectures.
  3. Move your chart to it's own sheet, name the sheet with your first names.
  4. Edit your chart so it looks nice and is informative.  (Be sure to add a title to your chart.)
  5. Add your chart to your wiki page on the MathReuls wiki.
