If you don't understand something or "can't find" something, please do the following: Read the lecture notes I put on my webpage (use "search" or "find"). Look in the textbook's index or glossary at the back of the book. Look it up in your dictionary or online at a website like www.dictionary.com . Go to websites like www.google.com , http://www.nytimes.com/ , www.cnn.com , or www.washingtonpost.com and search for it. If you still can't find the answer, then email me with your question or bring your question to class before the test. Bring a scantron and pencil to the test. Also, bring your student ID. I will want to see it when you turn in your test. The questions are multiple choice, matching, and true/false (true is A; false if B). The questions on the test will NOT be in the same order as the questions below. There are 88 points total. If you get 85 correct, you get 100%; three are extra credit. If you leave one blank, it counts the same as a wrong answer, so don't leave any questions blank. The questions are about: 1) What is the increasing interconnectedness of people and places through converging processes of economic, political, and cultural change (p. 1 of the textbook)? 2) What are the ten countries with the world's highest population (Table 1.1)? 3) Most people who migrate are moving to what type of area (p. 10)? 4) What is the Rate of Natural Increase (p. 11)? 5) What are population pyramids and why do we use them (fig. 1.14)? 6) What is the average number of children borne by a statistically average woman (p. 11)? 7) Which factors influence life expectancy (p. 11-12)? Health services, nutrition, war, disease, accident rates, pollution 8) What is the Demographic Transition (p. 12)? Start out high, death falls, birth falls, both low 9) What is Cricket (Fig. 1.24) A sport the British popularized in the empire. 10) Match the language family with the country where it is dominant (Fig. 1.25).
