1 Material World How Does the USA Compare? Center for Energy and Environmental Education, University of Northern Iowa WR teacher training 24-25/Website/Lessons/Material World How Does the USA Compare? Written by Susan Green, Cedar Falls, Iowa. Grade level: Middle School, High School Subject areas: Math, Social Studies Instructional strategies (from Classroom Instruction That Works Research-Based Strategies for Increasing Student Achievement by Robert J. Marzano): Identifying similarities and differences Nonlinguistic representations Homework and practice Cooperative learning Estimated duration: Preparation time: 3 minutes (This includes contacting your AEA Media Specialist four weeks prior to your unit to arrange inter-library loan for multiple copies of Material World: A Global Family Portrait, by Peter Menzel.) Activity time: 3 to 5 class periods, depending on the students skill level and how much time is spent on discussion. Setting: Classroom with students working in pairs. Skills: Graphing, comparing similarities and differences, discussing, researching. Vocabulary: Per capita, affluence Summary Through the process of making bar and circle graphs, the students will develop an understanding of how the United States compares to other countries with respect to per capita income, commercial energy use, mean years of school, urban vs. rural living and the percent of household expenditures spent on food. Objectives The students will read, process and interpret statistical profiles from 3 different countries. This will include: Making bar graphs to compare the per capita income. Making bar graphs to compare the commercial energy use per capita. Making double bar graphs to compare mean years of school, female vs. male. Making circle graphs to compare urban vs. rural living. Making circle graphs to compare the percentage of household expenditures spent on food. 1

2 Materials: A Material World book for each pair of students. Graph paper. Straight edge. Sheets of circles. (See Attachment A.) Background Material World is an attempt by Peter Menzel to capture, through photos and statistics, both the common humanity of the peoples inhabiting our earth and the great differences in material goods and circumstances that make rich and poor societies (Material World: A Global Family Portrait, p. 7). Procedure The Activity The following activity is intended to be an in-class guided practice activity. Distribute the Material World books to each pair of students. Allow the students to have five minutes to look through the book before starting the activity. Begin by having the students compare the photos of the family from the United States with the family from Bhutan. Guided practice For each country: a. Look up the country s statistic being studied (pages ). b. Compare that country s statistic to the U.S.A. s statistic. c. Look up the country s population on the chart. d. Find the location of the country on the world map (pages 4-5). e. Look at the photos and read about the country. f. Process the statistic. 1) Make a bar graph comparing the per capita income of these countries. Round the incomes to the nearest thousand before graphing. Bosnia--\$249 US--\$22,356 Vietnam--\$215 Spain--\$12,482 Per Capita Income 25, Nearest Thousand (\$) 2, 15, 1, 5, Bosnia U.S.A. Vietnam Spain 2

3 2) Make a bar graph comparing the commercial energy use per capita of these countries. Round your numbers to the nearest 5 before graphing. Bosnia--2,296 US--7,681 Vietnam 1 Spain--2,229 Commercial Energy Use per Capita (Oil Equivalent) 8, kg per capita 6, 4, 2, Bosnia U.S.A. Vietnam Spain 3) Make a double bar graph comparing the mean years of school, female vs. male. Albania--5 / 7 US / 12.2 Thailand--3.3 / 4.3 Mali--.1 /.5 Comparing Mean Years of School, Female vs. Male Years Albania U.S.A. Thailand Mali Female Male 4) Develop number sense with your students when making circle graphs. Stress to the students that their work needs to be neat as they will be referring back to these circles quite often. a. Practice dividing your circles by ½ s, 1/3 s, ¼ s, 1/5 s, 1/6 s, 1/8 s, 1/1 s, & 1/12 s. 3

4 b. Change each fraction into a percent. Ex. 1/5 = 2%, 4/5 = 8% c. Shade each fraction using 2 colors d. Review with the students that the fractions in a circle graph always add up to 1 and the percent in a circle graph always add up to 1%. 1/2 = 5% 1/3 = 33% 1/4 = 25% 1/5 = 2% 1/6 = 17% 1/8 = 12.5% 1/1 = 1% 1/12 = 8% 4

5 5) Round the percents to a fraction then make colored circle graphs showing the population in urban/rural areas %. Title each graph and create a color key. Mongolia--61 / 39 (round to thirds) US--76 / 24 (round to fourths) Iceland--92 / 8 (round to 1ths) S. Africa--51 / 49 (round to halves) Mongolia approx. 2/3 & 1/3 U.S.A. approx. 3/4 & 1/4 Iceland approx. 9/1 & 1/1 S. Africa approx. 1/2 & 1/2 5

6 6) Round the percents to a fraction then make colored circle graphs showing the Household Expenditure on (%). Title each graph and create a color key. Argentina 35 (round to thirds) US 13 (round to sixths) Israel 21 (round to fifths) W. Samoa 59 (round to fifths) Argentina approx. 1/3 & 2/3 U.S.A. approx. 1/6 & 5/6 Israel approx. 1/5 & 4/5 W. Samoa approx. 3/5 & 2/5 Assessment Give Homework Problems, Attachment B. Give the Test, Attachment C. Extensions 1) Do more practice problems in each of the above statistical profile areas. 2) Interpret and graph other columns of the statistical profile areas. 3) Make a scatter plot comparing per capita income versus per capita energy use. 4) Do further reading on these countries by using Peter Menzel s companion book: Women in the Material World.
