TEXT: Monroe and Wicander, PHYSICAL GEOLOGY Lab Manual: American Geological Institute, Physical Geology.
Two copies of my exam test bank are on reserve in the Library. They may be checked out at the third floor main desk. The test bank is also available on line. These questions are provided as a convenience to students who want to know what sorts of questions I ask. Please note:
Because of the large enrollment in this course and Earth Science, 296-102, it is necessary to run the field trip twice. Try to make the assigned date. I will arrange swaps for people with legitimate work or other conflicts. Once those needs are accomodated, I will permit swaps on a space-available basis for other reasons. Generally, there is no problem accomodating a reasonable number of swaps.
It is unfortunately necessary to verify reasons for missing the field trip. Students who miss the
trip will be given a form to fill out.
Verification consists of:
Missing the trip because of showing up at the wrong time or place: No Credit or makeup. It is your responsibility to put this event on your calendar.
Field trips leave from the Green Parking lot at 8:00 on the scheduled date and return about 4:00 P.M.
