Population Graph

I chose my graph to look like this because at first there were no wars. So, they had a steady start with some die-offs caused by natural disaster or diseases and animals. The rest stayed pretty neutral in a way that it didn’t keep going up and it didn’t keep going down. But, when civilizations were made, people gathered, which made a huge jump in population. I believe that it kept on going up until 8,000,000,000 population has generated. I finished my graph before Ana announced the 5,000,000 population thing so I didn’t have to change but I added it. That was my first proven piece of information. But the population stays low until 5,000 BCE when civilization for my graph started to raise the population until the population of the present day.

Graph Observations


Most of them seem pretty accurate. all though the the last on at top right’s circles when off the graph, which is terribly inaccurate. Although the one that me and my colleague studied was slightly off on axis with the graph squares but besides that it was perfect. The one that me and my colleague created was the one on the bottom. The shape depends on the problem. If it is accelerating then it will probably be curved. If it is steady then it will be a straight graph. For instance, run a little stop, run a little stop, and walk to the end. That will be probably going up steady and then horizontal. Then will go up steady, and then horizontal and then it will slow down which is basically the exact opposite of accelerating but which is still curved.
