The expansion of towns and cities not “the growth of cities” The student could not get a mark for just rearranging the words of the question and saying "the growth of cities" they would have to say something like cities getting bigger or expanding etc. (It is not just population growth but the increase in size of the built up area) Urban growth DOES include population growth ... it can mean the city gets bigger in the sense of more people AND/OR growth of the city in terms of space. (It is "Urban Sprawl" which means JUST the spread of the city into surrounding areas.) AO1 = 1 [1 mark] 01.2 Describe the predicted changes in the distribution of megacities between 2000 and 2025.
