As part of the Year 10 course the students explore two key economic theories based on population size and resource availability. One of these is Malthus - who suggested that a population would decline if it exceeded the resources available. The students applied Malthusian theory to investigate the disappearance of the population on the island of Rapa Nui. The small group project culminated in a presentation.
