Small World, Isn't it?

Today we talked about our unit problem, Small World, Isn't It?
Our goal is to figure out how long it will take for the world's population to grow to the point that we are all "squashed up" against one another.
We talked about some factors that can affect population growth including: food sources, natural resources, disease, climate, birth rates and death rates.
Some groups came up with strategies on how to solve this problem, but seemed to run into difficulties.
What difficulties did we talk about? Issues? Things that need to be clarified?
Homework tonight is HW1.
