The following writing assignment is due at or before the final exam (May 30) and is worth 20 points.  It must be typewritten, and must be your own work.  Plagiarizing will result in a score of zero for this assignment.  Feel free to refer to other sources, just make sure you cite those sources.  You must answer both question 1 and one of the options for question 2 (a b, c, or d).  The length suggestions are given as 12-pt, single spaced font.  You may, however, format the assignment how you see fit. 


Quiz 3 information

Wed, May 30th, 1:00pm will be our final lab quiz this semester.  It will be similar format to the first two quizzes: closed note, closed book, individual assignment that you only need a pen or pencil for.  It will be a front-back of a single sheet and will require you to work out similar problems to those in the lab, as well as recall information from the background information.

The quiz will cover labs 11, 12, 13, and 14.

Here are the most important things to study:

For lab 11 (Plate Tectonics), you should know the 3 major types of plate boundaries and know what typical features each one leads to, as well as the location from that lab that corresponds to each type of boundary

For lab 12 (GIS and Map Projections), know these terms: GIS, buffer, feature class, point, line (arc), polygon (area).  Also understand and be able to recognize the projections we used in the lab.

For lab 13 (GPS and Sampling) Just know the definitions of GPS and waypoint.

For lab 14 (which we didn't actually do unless you did the fieldtrip makeup) you need to know the figure from p3 about post-glaciated landscapes. Since Geography 1 is a pre/co-requisite for this course, I know that you have been exposed to the work of glaciers. There is both a copy of lab 14 and a separate jpeg posted below here.

This lab can serve as a makeup for the field trip. You will need to use Google Earth to complete it, which is a freely downloadable program or is available on school computers in the library or SCI 316.

The kmz files on this page are required, and should automatically open if you have Google Earth installed on your computer.

You only have to print the last 2 sheets to turn in to me (due by the last week of class).
