Deriving bedform phase diagrams part of Sedimentary Geology:Activities
Tom Hickson, University of St. Thomas (MN)
Students derive bedform phase diagrams from Middleton and Southard (1984) by plotting the original data (stolen using DataThief software from the publication) in Excel and defining bedform field boundaries. These ...
Use of an inquiry approach for exploring relationships between small stream dynamics, channel geometry, and bedform movement part of Sedimentary Geology:Activities
Kerry Keen, University of Wisconsin-River Falls
This group activity allows students to identify questions in the field on an actual physical system (in this case a small sand and gravel bed stream), then design experiments to answer their own questions. The ...
Long-Term Sedimentology Projects Using Local Geological and Environmental Problems part of Sedimentary Geology:Activities
David Franzi, SUNY College at Plattsburgh
Project-based exercises engage students in all aspects of the scientific inquiry, reinforce previously learned concepts and information and provide longer periods of time for students to analyze and synthesize ...
Virtual Field Trip to the Book Cliffs part of Sedimentary Geology:Activities
Ann Holmes, University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, The
Problem-based learning techniques have been applied to geological datasets collected and published about the Cretaceous Book Cliffs exposures in Utah.
Digital Sandstone Tutorial part of Sedimentary Geology:Activities
Kitty Milliken, University of Texas at Austin, The
The Tutorial Petrographic Image Atlas is designed to give students more exposure to petrographic features than they can get during organized laboratory periods.
Introduction to the properties of clay minerals part of Mineralogy:Activities
stephen Guggenheim, University of Illinois at Chicago
These laboratory experiments are designed to show the cation exchange capabilities of clays and how these exchanges affect physical properties.
Mineral Classification - What's in a Name? part of Mineralogy:Activities
Dexter Perkins, University of North Dakota-Main Campus; Dave Mogk, Montana State University-Bozeman
Students derive their own scheme for identifying and naming minerals. Examples include different minerals that have the same crystal forms, and mineral species that occur with numerous forms and varieties to ...
Examination of Igneous Silicates part of Mineralogy:Activities
Dexter Perkins, University of North Dakota-Main Campus
Students study hand samples of light-colored igneous minerals and related mineral species. They look at some of the same minerals, and others, in thin section.
