Activity 1.1 - Minerals and Products part of Humans Dependence on Mineral Resources
In the minerals and products activity, students match physical products with actual mineral samples, using observable properties as well as the minerals' chemical formulas and some products' ingredient ...

Activity 1.2 - Review of Minerals and Rocks part of Humans Dependence on Mineral Resources
The discussion presented here is meant to augment, not replace, the pre-class reading, as well as to provide an introduction to concept maps.

Activity Option 2.2 - Rare Earth Elements: Critical Elements of the Future part of Humans Dependence on Mineral Resources
This activity is based on the global supply and demand relationships of rare earth elements (REE). Students will work in small groups to analyze China's role in global REE production and supply, and how REE ...

Human's Dependence on Earth's Mineral Resources part of Humans Dependence on Mineral Resources
Despite humans' heavy reliance on Earth's mineral resources, few think about where the products they use come from and what it took to produce them. This module addresses that disconnect by combining ...

Unit 1: People, Products, and Minerals part of Humans Dependence on Mineral Resources
This unit provides an introduction to the module. In addition to learning about minerals and mineral resources, students identify minerals that are employed to make commonly used products, thus tying resource use ...

Unit 2: Boom and Bust: How Econ 101 Relates to Rocks part of Humans Dependence on Mineral Resources
This unit emphasizes that minerals are not mined just to mine them but because there is a consumer demand for the minerals. Use (demand) affects the supply and price of these minerals and also affects the amount ...

Unit 5: Mineral Resources Created by Igneous & Metamorphic Processes part of Humans Dependence on Mineral Resources
This unit introduces the concepts of igneous and metamorphic processes and how these processes create mineral deposits. The background material provides an overview of the formation and distribution of mineral ...

Attitude Toward Science, Scientists part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:First Day of Class:Activities
Prajukti Bhattacharyya, University of Wisconsin - Whitewater Course: Introduction to Earth Science 25-32 students Students' negative attitudes toward science can be a surprisingly powerful barrier to learning. ...

Instructor Materials: Overview of the Earth's Mineral Resources Module part of Humans Dependence on Mineral Resources
Module Goal: Explain how and why managing mineral resources is a global challenge that depends both on geological (mineral-forming) processes and non-geological factors with various impacts on the environment and ...

Concept Maps part of Humans Dependence on Mineral Resources
Concept maps are a way for students to illustrate the structure of their knowledge. They are useful both as tools of learning and as assessments, and especially as formative assessments. Concept maps consist of ...
