U.S. Population Growth: What Does the Future Hold?

College Algebra or Liberal Arts math students are presented with a ConcepTest, a Question of the Day and a write-pair-share activity involving U.S. population growth.

Student knowledge (or lack thereof) of the size of our population and its annual growth rate may also be surprising.
