SCIE1005 Demographic Dynamics

Subjects:
Science
Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
3.0

Humans have both affected and been affected by the Earth system, and as the human population continues to grow, human society will have to confront the impact this growth has on the environment. Human appropriation of natural resources—land, water, fish, minerals, and fossil fuels—has profoundly altered the natural environment. Which factors influence human population growth trends most strongly, and how does population growth impact the environment? In complex modern societies, the most critical environmental health challenge facing the human population is defining a balance between the social and economic benefits that materials and technologies provide on one hand and risks to the health of the population on the other hand. Through Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and data analysis, you will examine how science can provide solutions to some of these environmental challenges, allowing human societies and natural ecosystems to coexist.
