This web site is maintained by John Winter of Whitman College, and is an on-line companion to a mineralogy course. The web site contains a course syllabus, PowerPoint presentations and an Excel tutorial. Topics included in the PowerPoint presentations include basic symmetry concepts, 2-D and 3-D translations, crystal properties, and optical mineralogy concepts. Each PowerPoint file can be downloaded and modified to suit the need of the user. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html

Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
