• ### Transcript

• 1.
• Tuesday 26 th Feb
• DO NOW:
• Where do we see patterns?
• Looking down from an aeroplane, clothes,
• What is a pattern?
• A repetition of something similar
Level 1 Geography Patterns show us how something is distributed. Distributed means – where something is placed.
• 2. Skills – 1.10: Patterns pgs 25-26 Due: Friday 29 th Feb Homework for Week 5:
• 3. Learning Intention: … .to be able to identify patterns on maps Identifying Patterns
• 4. When we identify patterns we are generally identifying a trend and stating the pattern as a generalisation . Identifying patterns…
• Generalising words can be….
• Most, all, decreasing, increasing, none, staying the same, fluctuating, seasonal
• 5.
• This is when similar phenomena are located close together. Something is causing features to be located close together.
Clustered/concentrated What could be causing these people to be concentrated together?
• 6.
• This is when similar phenomena are spread out (usually quite thinly).
Sparse What could be causing these people to be distributed sparsely? The opposite to concentrated is…
• 7.
• What is clustered?
• Where is farming concentrated?
• Where is farming distributed sparsely?
Clustered/concentrated patterns in reality
• 8.
• This pattern is one that follows a line.
Linear Linear patterns do not have to make straight lines.
• 9.
• What is following a linear pattern?
Linear patterns in reality
• 10.
• This when similar phenomena are located around the outside (or on the edge) of something.
Peripheral What could be causing this peripheral pattern?
• 11. Peripheral patterns in reality Another eg… Industry is located around the periphery of a city.
• 12.
• A regular pattern is when a pattern is repeated over and over a again.
Regular Patterns What could be causing this regular pattern?
• 13. Regular patterns in reality
• 14.
• A random pattern is when there is no obvious pattern that is formed.
Irregular/random Patterns ??????
• 15. Finding patterns… Write down as many patterns as you can see.
• 16. Finding patterns about population distribution…
• The world’s population is clustered in Asia and Europe.
• Population distribution follows a peripheral pattern around the coasts of different countries and continents, eg Australia, South and North America.
• There is a linear pattern of population distribution through the tropics (above and below the equator).
• There is also a linear pattern of population distribution along the Nile River in Egypt. (this also occurs along other large rivers around the world eg the Ganges River in India.
• The world’s population is sparsely populated in areas like North-Eastern Europe (Russia), North America (Canada) and Australia.
• 17. Finding patterns… Use an atlas… Look at the climate maps of NZ and write down the patterns that you can see. Look at physical maps of the world and write down the patterns you can see. Choose one another map and write down the patterns you can see. Extra for experts:
• 18.
• Reflection – have you achieved today’s Learning Intention?
• Something I am unclear about is…
• Something I found really interesting was…
Learning Intention: … .to be able to identify patterns on maps
• 19.
• Patterns occur for reasons .
• We need to be able to recognise the relationships between different features on a map.
• When describing patterns we are making generalisations .
Relationships & Patterns Tomorrow we will look at…
