GEOG 1401 Dr. Jeff Lee Review Material for Exam 1 After you watch the lecture videos and read the written lectures, do the work below to help you understand the material. There is material from the lectures and from Scientific Endeavor. Also, there is a map portion on the test (see below). The Scientific Endeavor questions and map part are separate from individual lectures. You can do those parts any time before the exam. As you do the homework, it is crucial that you actively think about the topics. Mindlessly writing down words is not effective studying. You must understand the terms and concepts. The exam questions will be taken from these topics, but while some questions will simply involve knowing a definition, others will require you to make connections between topics or show that you understand them when presented another way. Learn ideas, not just words. The primary purpose of this homework is to help you prepare for the exams, but you also will submit each lecture on Blackboard, either as a .docx, .pdf, or .jpeg (if scanned). Turn in one file for each lecture. (If you take photos of each page, you can insert them into a Word document to make one file.) Your work should be readable but does not have to be polished. The purpose is to help you understand. Note: turning in someone else’s work as your own is plagiarism and a useless way to prepare for the exam. The map part is straightforward memorization and that requires much time spent on going over the map. Find a way to quiz yourself. If you wait until the last minute, you will not have time to get the locations sufficiently embedded in your brain for the exam. (Note: Future exams will not have this many locations to remember. On the other hand, you should already know the continents and oceans.) Review 1 (review material from Lecture 1) 1. Introduction 1.1. Course overview/Syllabus (none) 1.2. What is Geography?
