The activities and discussions in lecture, along with the required readings posted in D2L and listed on the “What You Need to Know” (WYNTK) pdf will be helpful in solving the geologic problems down below. Tip: Print out pages 2 and 3 to label and makes notes on, instead of trying to do everything in your head! Name: Pre homework questions (1 pt): Below are statements that reflect some of what you should be getting out of this assignment . 1. Before you complete the assignment, rate how true each of the following statements is for you using a scale of 1-5, where 1 is “not at all true of me” and 5 is “very true of me” . These answers for the pre-question are graded only for being complete (1 pt all or nothing) and not what your answers are. Your rating (1 through 5) A. I am comfortable interpreting the potential depositional environment for a sedimentary formation based on observations and descriptions. B. I am comfortable applying the five relative ordering principles to determine the order of geologic events for an outcrop or cross section of an area C. I can distinguish between the three different types of unconformities using field photographs or cross sections D. I am comfortable reconstruct the geologic history of an area by combining my knowledge of the relative ordering principles and the rock cycle.
