Map we should all use,
This review is from: Peters World Map (Early Learning Geography) (Poster)
I am a teacher who strongly believes that the Mercator projection should NOT be used in schools. The proportions are wrong which leads to many misconceptions and Mercator shows 'wealthier' countries as being larger.
Whilst the Peters projection still isn't perfect, I use it in my classroom and I have found that my students have a clearer understanding of the world in map form once they compare the Mercator and Peters projections.
Oxfam have an online activity 'Maping Our World' which shows the benefits of using Peters Projection Maps.
I will be using this projection to teach my daughter about the world.
