Lecture Times : Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:00-10:20 PM 130 HR Attendance: Attendance at lectures is expected. This is to your benefit. I often give guidance as to what specifically will be on the exam during the lectures and nowhere else. I will often provide information in the lectures you are responsible for knowing that doesn't appear elesewhere. Simply reading the online notes and textbook will not allow you to succeed; exams will focus on understanding, not simply repeating, the material. You will be responsible for knowing about any announcements made during lectures, and if you miss class for any reason you are responsible for getting notes from your colleagues. Note on course credit and expected workload LSU policy grants one semester hour of credit for every hour of (weekly) meeting time for lecture courses. As a general rule, students are expected to spend two to three hours per credit working outside of class. Work outside of this class will consist of several online assignments and studying for exams. GEOL 1001 satisfies the LSU General Education requirements for a Natural Science (Physical) course. This course addresses the following General Education Natural Sciences learning objective “An LSU graduate will employ scientific and mathematical methods and technology in the resolution of laboratory and real-world problems.”
