If you do not remember to sign the roll sheet, you will be counted as absent that day. I expect you to come to every class, but I understand that circumstances out of your control do arise. I will need a documented excuse to excuse any absences. For excessive absences, points will be taken from your class participation grade.Required Text: Exploring Earth Science by Stephen Reynolds and Julia Johnson, 1stedition Unit 1:Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5Unit 2: Chapters 6, 7, 8, 9, 10Unit 3: Chapters 11, 12, 13, 14, 15Unit 4: Chapters 16, 17, 18, 19, 20Course Grades:Class participation: 10% Moodle exercises: 30% Blog: 20%Tests: 40% I have a Zero Tolerance policy for cheating.
