Activities (3)

Poster Presentation part of Cutting Edge:Paleontology:Activities
Students are required to do independent research on a topic of their choosing. They are then required to construct a poster that explains the main points of their topic using a combination of words and graphics. This presentation format is less stressful for many students than given a traditional talk and it allows the rest of the class to more easily interact and ask question of the presenter.

Devonian Transformation part of Cutting Edge:Paleontology:Activities
Students use the web to examine the biologic, geologic, atmospheric, and climatologically changes that occur with the evolution of land plants. This write up is a summary of web-based readings which the students need to complete before an in-class discssion.

The Carbon Cycle & Global Climate Change part of Cutting Edge:Oceanography:Activities
This is two-hour lab exercise based on computer data sets. Students examine records of CO2 levels in the atmosphere as well as annual temperature records for the US and the world.


Evolution of the Earth part of Cutting Edge:Paleontology:Courses
Goals of class: To discuss the past history of Earth and its inhabitants. It examines how the geologic record can be used to reconstruct how we got where we are today, and how it can help us predict the future.
