Laura Guertin, Penn State Brandywine
students are asked to resolve how many days each of 5 volcanologists spent at a volcano and what day they started for the volcano. There is also a second part where students are asked to do some additional research about volcanoes on the web.

Identifying Plate Tectonic Boundaries for a Virtual Ocean Basin

Students observe an ocean basin and two continental margins to identify possible plate boundaries and predict where earthquakes and volcanoes would occur. They also draw the boundaries in cross section.

Magma Viscosity Demos
Barry Bickmore, Brigham Young University
This is an interactive lecture where students answer questions about demonstrations shown in several movie files. They learn to connect what they have learned about molecules, phases of matter, silicate crystal structures, and igneous rock classification with magma viscosity, and to connect magma viscosity with volcano explosiveness and morphology.

ConcepTest: Western U.S. Volcanoes and Earthquakes #2
The map below shows the plate configurations along the western margin of North America. At which of the locations would we be most likely to find the epicenters for deep (e.g. 300 km) earthquakes? a. A b. B c. C d. ...

ConcepTest: Western U.S. Volcanoes and Earthquakes #3
