This course is an introduction to how our planet has become the way it is, and how it continues to evolve. If you want to major in the Earth sciences, this is the place to start. If not, this class will expand your understanding of your planet and its processes. In addition to satisfying our intellectual curiosity, our understanding of this great machine has profound implications for the way we obtain resources and interact with our environment, and thus for the future of ourselves and all species. This perspective will enhance your appreciation for the natural world and also help you make informed decisions about environmental and political issues. Textbook Earth: An Introduction to Physical Geology, 11 th edition, by Tarbuck, Lutgens and Tasa. This text is available in the university bookstore. It is very important that you bring your textbook with you to class, because I refer to figures in it frequently. Numerous resources are available for this textbook online, including eText and the online Mastering Geology course. This is a very well-written textbook and is highly recommended. It is also the only required text for the course.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
