  • Eliminate obvious distracters


Slide12 l.jpg

Tips for Multiple Choice Questions

  • Just because a choice may have some truth, it does not mean that it answers the question


Slide13 l.jpg

Tips for Multiple Choice Questions

Also…

  • Read all choices before answering a question

  • Skip over hard questions for later

  • Information in one part of the test may be helpful in other parts

  • Do not leave any answers blank -- if all else fails, guess


Constructed response questions l.jpg

Constructed Response Questions

  • Contains multiple parts and/or steps

  • Requires you to develop your own response

  • Included on the exam to:

    • assess your understanding rather than your memorization

    • demonstrate your ability to solve problems and integrate data

    • display your knowledge of skills such as graphing, calculating, and drawing isolines and profiles


Tips for constructed response questions l.jpg

Tips for Constructed Response Questions

  • Know what will be expected of you

  • Always include units in your answers

  • Make sure your answers match the form asked for

  • Reply with complete, well constructed and organized sentences when asked

  • Use your answer sheet for clues on how to answer questions

Earth science reference tables l.jpg

Earth Science Reference Tables

  • Provided for all students to use during the written exam

  • Be familiar with the ESRTs prior to exam

  • Some questions require the use of the ESRTs, while for other questions, the ESRTs may be helpful

  • Not all questions will prompt you to use the ESRTs


Laboratory performance test l.jpg

Laboratory Performance Test

  • Evaluate lab skills developed throughout the year

  • Must be taken before the written exam

  • May count for approximately 15% of overall test grade

  • Consists of three stations

  • Allotted 9 minutes to complete the tasks associated with each station


Minerals l.jpg

pg. 16 ESRTs

Minerals

  • Mineral: naturally occurring substance with a unique crystalline structure and chemical composition

  • Identification based on:

    • Luster: metallic or non-metallic

    • Hardness: resistance to being scratched; measured on the Mohs scale

    • Cleavage or fracture: how the mineral breaks

    • Streak: colored powder, if any, left behind after mineral is rubbed on a surface

    • Acid test: bubbles result if calcium carbonate is present


Igneous rocks l.jpg

Igneous Rocks

pg. 6 ESRTs

  • Igneous rock: formed from cooled and hardened magma (intrusive) or lava (extrusive)

  • Intrusive: formed inside earth

    • – coarse grained and large crystals (granite)

  • • Extrusive: formed outside earth

    • – glassy appearance (obsidian)

    • – vesicular: gas pockets (pumice)

    • – fine grained and small crystals (basalt)


  • Sedimentary rocks l.jpg

    Sedimentary Rocks

    pg. 7 ESRTs

    • Sedimentary rock: generally formed from compaction and cementation of smaller rocks and/or sediments

    • Generally formed in aquatic environments

    • Key characteristics:

      • Visible sediments or pieces of other rocks

      • (such as sand, pebbles, silt, and cobbles)

      • Fossils may be present


    Metamorphic rocks l.jpg

    Metamorphic Rocks

    pg. 7 ESRTs

    • Metamorphic rock: formed when existing rocks undergo intense heat and pressure

    • Generally formed deep in lithosphere

    • Key characteristics:

      • Foliation: thin layering due to mineral alignment

      • Banding: type of foliation where minerals are separated into bands


    Elliptical orbits and eccentricity l.jpg

    Elliptical Orbits and Eccentricity

    • Ellipse: oval; elongated circle with two centers called foci – the shape of all planetary orbits in our solar system

    • Eccentricity: degree of ovalness

    Foci

    Major Axis


    Elliptical orbits and eccentricity49 l.jpg

    Elliptical Orbits and Eccentricity

    • Eccentricity = distance between foci

      length of major axis

    pg. 1 ESRTs

    distance between foci

    length of major axis

    • Eccentricity is:

      • Never less than zero or greater than 1

      • Unitless

      • Rounded to the nearest thousandths (0.000)


    Elliptical orbits and eccentricity50 l.jpg

    Elliptical Orbits and Eccentricity

    • Remember:

    • The ellipse represents the shape of the path a planet travels around the sun

    • The sun is one of the two foci

    • The greater the eccentricity, the more oval the ellipse

    pg. 15 ESRTs


    Elliptical orbits and eccentricity51 l.jpg

    Elliptical Orbits and Eccentricity

    • The elliptical shape of an orbit causes the distance from the sun to the planet to change

    • When a planet is far from the sun:

      • – Gravitational attraction decreases

      • – Apparent diameter decreases

      • – Orbital velocity decreases

    • When a planet is close to the sun:

      • – Gravitational attraction increases

      • – Apparent diameter increases

      • – Orbital velocity increases


    Earthquakes and epicenters l.jpg

    Earthquakes and Epicenters

    • Epicenter: location on earth’s surface directly above the focus (where the earthquake originates)

    • Distance to the epicenter can be determined if the travel times of the P- and S-waves are known

    • Lagtime: difference in travel time between the P- and S-waves

    Earthquakes and epicenters59 l.jpg

    Earthquakes and Epicenters

    • To locate the earthquake’s epicenter, a minimum of three seismic stations are needed

    • With one station, there are many possible epicenters

    Station 1


    Earthquakes and epicenters60 l.jpg

    Earthquakes and Epicenters

    • With two stations, there are only two possible epicenters

    Station 2

    • With three stations, there is only one possible epicenters

    In summary l.jpg

    In Summary…

    • Be prepared for test day

      • Get supplies together the night before

      • Get a good nights sleep and breakfast

    • Start studying now

    • If you don’t understand a topic, ask for help before the test

    • Practice test taking strategies

    • During the exam: Take your time and read carefully

    • Check your work if time is left
