Population Density of the World, 1990-2015 (WMS)
This animation shows the population density of the world in the years 1990, 1995, 2000, as well as a projected population density map in 2015. These figures have been adjusted to match United Nations totals. The most dramatic differences in population are not readily visible in this animation because they are located in cities. The maximum population density in 1990 was about 79,000 people per square kilometer, while the estimated maximum population density in 2015 will be about 236,000 people p
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 18 Month Old: Normal: Fine Motor/Coordination - Stacking Blocks
Even more demanding than placing blocks or beads in a container is the task of stacking blocks. The number of blocks that a child can stack is correlated with their level of motor development. A 15 month old can stack 2 blocks while an 18 month old should be able to stack at least 4 blocks. This toddler is able to stack 5 blocks.
