TEXT: Essentials of Oceanography , 12th ed. by Trujillo & Thurman Note: the 11 th edition of the text can be used to complete most assignments, however, there is an additional chapter (11, Marine Pollution) that is not contained in the 11 th edition although Chapt. 11, Coastal Ocean has most of the information. Also, for the page numbers and graphics of figures identified as being on the exams may be different . Students are encouraged to study the PPT figures. TESTS: Four unit exams (100 points each), and one comprehensive final (100 points). Unannounced quizzes may also be given. If no exams are missed, the lowest 100 point unit exam (not the comprehensive final) will be dropped. GRADING: Your average is based on the percentage of total points (500 points) from your best three exams, the final exam, and oceanography project (100 points). 90 -100 = A 80 - 89 = B 70 - 79 = C 60 - 69 = D 50 - 59 = F W - Withdrawal deadline is Monday, October 29, 2018 .

    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.
