Seismogram Patterns part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
I assign this homework on the first day of class, after discussing the nature of science and mathematics, and the integral role of patterns in scientific discovery. The specific goal is to have students carefully observe the patterns in seismograms, before we being a detailed investigation of the physics of seismic waves excitation and propagation.
