Activities (4)

Mineral Properties Sheets part of Cutting Edge:Mineralogy:Activities
This activity consists of a set of 69 mineral sheets to be used as part of a term-length set of labs. Each sheet has spaces to write physical and optical properties for each mineral, and a crystal form diagram scanned from Nesse and/or Dana.

Introduction to Microsoft Excel part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
This assignment walks students through the creation of an Excel spreadsheet, step by step. It includes numerical fills via copy, creation of fixed and relative formulas, formula fill via copy, some summary functions, and an introduction to making scientific graphs.

Blender part of Cutting Edge:Visualization:Teaching Geoscience with Visualizations:Visualization Tools
Blender is a free, open-source tool for creating and animating 3D content. It is available for all major operating systems. It allows the creation and modification of graphics primitives, surfaces, etc. along with lighting and dynamic camera features. Animating is done via keyframes, and most properties can be animated over time. Advanced features include interactivity (e.g., game-like features), particle systems, skeleton-based models. Blender includes and is partially based upon a Python scripting system.

AFM Projection 3D Movie part of Cutting Edge:Petrology:Teaching Examples
Animated demonstration of AKFM to AFM projection using 3D flythrough of the AKFM tetrahedron, with narration. This is a Quicktime movie.
