Rock-Tectonics synthesis lab part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
This lab aims to draw together rock identification and plate tectonics as well as relative age relationships. It gets students to "be" geologists...looking at rock suites and trying to see how they fit with the tectonic setting.
Spring Break-Weathering Homework part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
This short assignment gets students thinking about and looking for geology while on spring break. Students are asked to photograph a feature of weathering and they must be in the picture. Students must then do a short write-up explaining what they observe and to explain the geological process. This assignment can also be expanded to include mass wasting and mass wasting prevention.
Crystal and Glass Formation from a Melt and a Glimpse into Archaeometallurgy Through the Eyes of a Binary Eutectic Phase Diagram part of Cutting Edge:Petrology:Teaching Examples
This lab gives students the opportunity to investigate crystallization processes and textures. Students experiment with a crystalline wax, studying how/where the crystals form, how to get crystal-free material, and how different cooling rates affect crystal size and distribution.
Our Geologic Environment (GSCI 100) part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Courses
This is a physical geology/Earth science course aimed at non-science majors. In the lecture students learn basic geological concepts and are encouraged to see how these ideas apply to their own lives. The course itself is a mixture of lecture and class participation and is supported by the labs, which give students hands-on experience with some of the lecture concepts.
