Study Guide for Test 1 Fall 2010 Test format: on Scantron (I will supply the scantron sheets) 50 questions, in multiple choice, T/F, or possibly matching questions Bring a #2 pencil Lectures/Chapters covered : Lectures 1-6 (Chapters 1, 2, and 3 in the text). Source of questions: The test will come from the Lecture Outline Notes, based on the in-class questions in this document. As explained in class, the in-class questions will be changed for the text (from true to false, etc. but they reflect precisely the terms and concepts you should know) the “on your own” questions (see below). At least one question from each of these will be on the test. the “not in notes” notes you took in class (items that were red on the powerpoints. At least five questions will come from these. . Study tips: Study/read over your class notes. For some students it will be helpful to review the same concepts in the textbook. Then look at the questions below and see if you can answer them. Do you know why a statement isn’t true? Do you precisely the definition of a term? Remember, the definition for one term, such as elevation, may be used in a T/F paired wrongly with the definition of another term, such as Often I will take a group of T/F questions in the notes and turn them into a multiple choice question, changing the items that were true or false. Often a multiple choice question will ask “Which is FALSE?” Therefore you must understand the material in the questions, don’t just memorize the answers to the questions the way they are, because true statement will be changed to false, etc. For example, if the answer is C in a multiple choice question in the notes, another answer will be correct on the test. On your own (answers not in the lecture notes; look them up in the textbook) On pages 14 and 15 of the text , it is said that the earth can be divided into 4 “spheres”. What are the 4 spheres and their definitions? Look at Figure 2.19 on page 57 of the text : it shows how much green vegetation there is over the earth in January and July. The very green areas indicate a lot of green vegetation. The white to brown areas indicate either that there is no vegetation, or that the leaves have fallen off of the plants. Looking at the Figure, answer the following questions: T/F In January, there is not a lot of green vegetation in the Northern Hemisphere (North America, Europe, north Africa and Asia)
