• Unit 1: Introduction to Geography

    Geography comes from the Greek word geo (earth) and graph (to write). It examines the physical and human worlds and the spatial relationships between them. Geographers look at how the earth is changing due to the way humans interact with the environment. This unit will examine the scientific foundations of geography, and explore the relationships between places, human populations and cultures, and globalization.
