In this set of flashcards, you will become familiar with many terms involving population growth, including the population growth rate, Demographic Transition Model, and the Malthusian theory, which describes how and why the population changes. You will also learn that, according to the Malthusian theory, the population grows exponentially, in what is called the geometric rate, while the rate of food production grows linearly, which is called the arithmetic rate.
