SCI 245 Week 1 CheckPoint Study of Earth

SCI 245 Week 2 CheckPoint Fossils and the Geologic Column

  • Write a 200- to 300-word description of how these four subsystems interact with one another. In your response, identify one type of resource from each subsystem on which people depend.

Your instructor will assign you one of the following methods of evaluating geologic time: Absolute Dating/Numerical Age or Relative Dating. Describe your assigned method and how it is used to evaluate geologic time. Review another student’s method that is different from yours. Reply to another student who describes a different method than yours and comment on which method you think is more reliable or accurate.

SCI 245 Week 3 Assignment Earthquakes

  • Your instructor will assign you one of the following methods of evaluating geologic time: Absolute Dating/Numerical Age or Relative Dating. Describe your assigned method and how it is used to evaluate geologic time. Review another student’s method that is different from yours.

  • When the Earth does quake and shake, how does it move?

  • What are the events that cause the Earth to quake and shake?

  • How are earthquakes measured?

  • Briefly describe the two types of body waves an earthquake creates.

SCI 245 Week 3 CheckPoint Plate Tectonic Theory

SCI 245 Week 4 CheckPoint Igneous Rocks

  • After viewing the animation, your brother has a look of disbelief on his face, “C’mon, really? Our whole continent moves? That’s bogus!” Instead of blowing him off like you usually do, you decide to sit down and educate him about plate tectonics. First, you give him an overview about two historical figures that contributed to the plate tectonic theory.

  • Where do igneous rocks originate?

  • How are they formed?

  • What are the two categories of igneous rocks?

  • What are the distinguishing characteristics between the two categories of rocks?

SCI 245 Week 4 DQ 1 and DQ 2

SCI 245 Week 5 Assignment Sedimentary Rocks

  • Which type of plate margin commonly forms volcanoes? Name one of the most popular volcanoes in the United States or the world. If you need assistance, review the Ring of Fire animation on the student Web site or http://nationalatlas.gov/dynamic/dyn_volcano.html. Discuss whether or not the volcano is active and how it has impacted the area.

  • Where do sedimentary rocks originate?

  • How are they formed?

  • What are the three categories of sedimentary rocks?

  • What are the distinguishing characteristics between the three categories of rocks?

SCI 245 Week 6 DQ 1 and DQ 2

SCI 245 Week 7 Assignment Deserts, Glaciers, and Climate

  • Referto Figure 9.21 on p. 264 of the text. How would you determine the slope of the land surface in this figure? If you consider building a house in a location in this area, what is the best location for your house? Why?

  • Referto Figure 9.22 on p. 265 and locate at least three main structural features. Discuss why the Canmore community is established on the northeast side of the map.

  • Summarize the climate changes that have occurred from the past to the present.

  • Predict what you think the Earth will look like into the 21st century. Consider the weather and changes in geological features.

SCI 245 Week 8 DQ 1 and DQ 2

SCI 245 Week 9 Capstone CheckPoint

  • Discuss a nonrenewable resource that you think will have the most significant impact to our lives if it is depleted. Explain your choice. Are there current efforts to conserve it? Provide an example of a person, place, or thing that utilizes a renewable resource.

Discuss in 200- to 300-words, the importance of the science of geology to us as a civilization. Provide at least two examples. For example, the ability to predict earthquakes and other disasters, or understanding mining and the use of natural resources.
