  • um i have a comment about the 2nd picture of the slide. South Korea is not a part of the less economically developed countries. i don't know where you got the picture from, but please use updated sources. many people in Korea have internet as well as cellphones from kids young as 7 years old. They have the illiteracy rate below 1%. By far they're not part of less economically developed countries. If you are using Samsung or LG's products, you're using Korean products. Keep that in mind when you use pictures like this.

    • WHAT IS DEVELOPMENT?
    • THE NORTH SOUTH DIVIDE
    • What is development?
      • Development is basically about how rich or poor a country is. We can measure how rich a county is by using a simple calculation;
      The amount of money a county makes from selling goods Total population of that country This is called the Gross National Product, or GNP for short.

    • What other factors may indicate to us how developed a country is?
    • Development indicators
      • Look at p2 of your booklets to see what Economic and Social factors exist.
    • Correlations
      • A positive correlation is when the line of best fit increases. This tells us that if one of the indicators increases, then the other will also increase.
      • A negative correlation is when the line of best fit decreases. This tells us that if one indicator increases, for instance the number of people per doctor, the other indicator will fall
