You will also need to buy a suitable notebook for lab.
Grading:There will be one midterm exam, one final exam and lab write-ups. See the syllabus
for assigned readings from the textbook.

The midterm exam is a take-home exam consisting of short answer questions. The final exam will be comprehensive (75 questions with multiple choice answers and a rock specimen), although it will emphasize material presented during the second half of the course. There is no clear distinction between lecture and lab material.The labs are an integral part of this

class and material presented during the lab will appear on tests.
Please Note: Any student missing more than one lab for any reason will be asked to take
an incomplete for the course.
Your final grade will be based on the above criteria weighted as follows:
Midterm
20%
Final
30%
Lab Write-ups
40%
Participation
10%
Outdoor Labs
Geologic knowledge is primarily gathered from field investigations. The field trips and labs
will develop your skills of observation and description.
Dress appropriately!!
Be prepared for hot weather, sun, cold weather, wind, rain, poison ivy, and rough, muddy
ground.

Clothing I would suggest includes the following:
Sturdy boots or sneaks
A hat for sun and bugs if they bother you
Shorts are OK. Some areas are brushy and if you don't like scratches wear long pants.
Raincoat/Windbreaker/Umbrella

Warm shirt/sweater/parka for cool days
(Keep all of the above in a knapsack so you will always have it along.)
