This activity opens with a bar graph depicting low, middle, and high estimates of United States population growth between 2000 and 2100. Students are given two statements about population growth and asked to decide if the data support those statements. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, explains how graphic representations of population growth are used by politicians and city planners. The Hint suggests that students approach the problem by determining what the 2100 population would be if the 2000 population doubled. Related questions ask students to look for trends in additional data representations. Answers to all questions and links to resources are included. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
