Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments you'll be tested on your understanding of:

  • Computing the natality (birth) rate and the mortality (death) rate of a given population
  • Emigration
  • The definition of carrying capacity
  • Population

Skills Practiced

This quiz and worksheet allow students to test the following skills:

  • Making connections - use understanding of the concept of population as affected by birth, death, and emigration
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define main phrases, such as natality and mortality
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the mathematical formula to determine the natality and mortality rate per 1000 of the population.
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer questions about factors that provide a ceiling for population growth

Additional Learning

To learn more about population growth, review the accompanying lesson on How Birth, Immigration, Emigration & Death Affect Populations. This lesson covers the following objectives:

  • Define and understand the general term, population
  • Understand that population is affected by the natality rate, mortality rate, emigration, and immigration
  • Understand that while exponential growth of a population is possible given unlimited resources and space, there is a carrying capacity for each population center, which limits ultimate population size
  • Be able to compute the birth and death rate per 1000 people by using the formula described in the lesson
