Task 1 <ul><li>Study Figure 1 and the information on p.230 Evolving Planet (Region Disparities in Brazil) </li></ul><ul><li>Use an atlas to label the economically active areas (cities ) </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Explain the contrasts in development between the core (South-East) and periphery (North and North-East) regions of Brazil </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
Choropleth shading Choropleth (colour shaded) maps . This is especially appropriate for showing standardised data such as rates, densities or percentages. A different colour is used for each of a number of bands, allowing users to identify which areas have high, low or middling values. It is a very visual way of showing data making comparison very easy. Africa- GDP
Choropleth shading <ul><li>Have a look at an example of how to draw a choropleth map here </li></ul>
Disparity between the core and periphery <ul><li>Complete a choropleth map to shoe HDI in the different regions of Brazil. </li></ul><ul><li>What problems can be caused when there is disparity within a country.(page 231 purple book). </li></ul>
Exam style question <ul><li>Describe the regional differences that have resulted from economic development </li></ul><ul><li>(6 marks) </li></ul>
Just a minute <ul><li>Speak for 1 minute, no repetitions, pauses, eeers, uuuums on </li></ul><ul><li>The characteristics of the core area of Brazil </li></ul><ul><li>The characteristics of a peripheral area in Brazil </li></ul><ul><li>The benefits and problems of using choropleth shading </li></ul>
