Freeman and Company, 2010 About This Course: College-level geography courses are intended to help students understand why things are where they are on the surface of the earth. In other words, students will have the opportunity to better develop a spatial perspective in thinking about their surroundings. This particular geography course provides a spatial perspective on certain aspects of cultures, such as cultural diversity around the world, geodemography, globalization, religion, language, ethnicity, rural culture, and urban culture. We will learn how these aspects of culture spread across the earth, how they interact with each other and with their natural environment to create a mosaic of ever changing cultural landscapes within which everyone experiences life. Course Outline: This class is lecture-based. There is no lab. The exams and assignments for the entire course will be worth 1000 points total. Exams: There will be 3 exams, including the final exams. The first exam will consist of 50 questions (45 multiple choice questions and 5 True/False questions). It will be worth 150 points. The second exam will consist of 60 questions; 50 55 multiple choice questions and 5-10 T/F questions. It will be worth 180 points. Most of the questions for the exams will come from the lectures and videos (if any) shown in the class. Questions requiring use of the student atlas book will also be fair to ask for the exams.

    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.
