    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor of this course was highly energetic and motivated for both the subject and her students. The course provided a great variety of interesting and useful information that didn't stack on itself, so if you don't understand one concept, it doesn't hurt you the rest of the class. Also, for the midterm/final exam reviews the professor split the lab groups into teams and played "geological jeopardy"!

    Course highlights:

    I learned to quickly identify metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary rocks, to calculate the structural integrity of joints and faults in rock formations, advanced mapping techniques, basic history of the earth's geological structures/formations. The class also went into depth about continental plates and the types of processes that occur at the intersections of those plates. Learned basic orienteering skills. Learned about the many types of natural water flows.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend classes! Fun teaching, solid amount of extra credit worked into her class attendance system, and the material varies greatly so if you miss a week of classes you'll probably miss an entire section. Homework is easy and not terribly time consuming, so don't stress about those assignments. The biggest piece of advice is to create your own study guide for the midterm and final as you go through the class! Aside from jeopardy, the only review material is extremely vague! The professor basically gives you a huge list of all the topics in all the chapters covered and expects you to know everything. The homework assignments are very similar to the exams, so that'll be your best studying tool.
