Tool Time - Regions and Diffusion

  1. 1. Regions
  2. 2. Regions Regions in America - Looking at the map of America, list/define different regions that exist. ! !
  3. 3. Regions I. Regions A. The Basics 1. Defined by physical & human characteristics a. Cultural Landscape: Shared language, religion, economic feature/activity, 2. Divides up/simplifies world, helps interpret data B. Types 1. Formal a. Everything/one inside shares the same trait (Religion, laws, language, etc) 2. Functional or Nodal a. Organized around central focus point b. Farther away = Loses importance/intensity (distance decay) 3. Perceptual/Vernacular a. People’s perceptions or Feelings
  4. 4. Regions Regions in America - Looking at the map of America, list/define different regions that exist. - Based on these types of regions, categorize your regions. What other regions can you come up with?

  12. 12. Space & Connection II. Objects in Space A. Distribution 1. Density: frequency within a space 2. Concentration: how objects spread over space (Clustered, dispersed) 3. Pattern: geometric arrangement over space B. Diffusion 1. Relocation: Spreading from the hearth by groups moving from one place to another 2. Expansion a. Hierarchical: From the powerful/elite > Others b. Contagious: Rapid, widespread. No relocation. No social hierarchy c. Stimulus: an element spreads, but used in a different way then originally intended
  13. 13. Diffusion FRQ Geographers marvel at the ability for trends to spread rapidly, almost instantaneously across the globe. A. Define diffusion B. Identify and explain two different types of diffusion C. Identify & explain two examples of diffusion, one from before the Industrial Revolution, one from after the Industrial Revolution. D. The diffusion of Hip-Hop was a radical anomaly. Identify and explain which diffusion model Hip-Hop music defied.
