Teaching about Time

Noah Fay, Science Department, Pima Community College and University of Arizona

Below is an itemization of the challenges I encounter and methods I use (or don't use, as the case may be) in teaching temporal concepts. They are all in the context of geologic time and the techniques used therein. For some context, these are all related to a 15-week Physical Geology class at Pima CC where I have usually 2 class periods w/labs (total ~5 hrs) to cover the topics.
