Illustrated Textbook: Location’s Three Types of Distribution

August 14, 2017 // 0 Comments

We continue to discuss spatial distribution with our example of traffic fatalities in the state of Wyoming. This page deals with critical fundamentals-SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION, and it’s three types: PATTERN, DENSITY, and CONCENTRATION. We also talk about what it means to be CLUSTERED and DISPERSED, and the differences between LINEAR PATTERN, CENTRALIZED PATTERN, and RANDOM PATTERN (the oxymoron). Click to [...]

Lessons and Worksheets: Spacial Distribution: Pattern, Concentration, Density

June 25, 2014 // 0 Comments

Teacher’s Notes: This is the lesson that I use for my students to teach them about the concept of spatial distribution and density. I am sure that you can implement a few more fun things like using M&Ms to have them illustrate the different types as well (actually I might try that this year). The blank worksheet and key are below. It usually takes my kids  50 minutes to complete the worksheet and it takes me 20 minutes to complete the lecture. Title: Spacial Distribution: The Final Frontier Topics: Space: Pattern, Distribution, Concentration, Density Time: 50-70 minutes Materials: Lecture Notes, Worksheets Purpose: For students to understand the different types of spatial distributions and types of densities. Procedure: 1) Lecture/Discussion: Explain to students what SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION is and its importance. Provide students with lecture notes on how to figure out the three types of arithmetic density. Explain why it is useful for geographers to [...]
