Text: Earth Revealed by Carlson, Plummer, and McGeary, 6th Edition


Although this is the official class textbook, almost any modern Physical Geology textbook will suffice for this course because the textbook serves only as a reference. The test material comes from the class lectures.


Tests: Three 100 point multiple-choice tests. The first test will cover chapters 1-6; the second test will cover chapters 7-12; and the last test will cover chapters 13-19 on 5/9/06 at 3-5 PM during finals. A comprehensive Makeup test covering Chapters 1-12 will be given immediately after the final test to serve as a makeup for students missing one of the first two tests. In addition, any student who wishes to substitute the Makeup test for one of their first two tests can take it. Students who miss both of the first two tests should drop the course. Students caught cheating will receive a grade of zero on the test.


The numerical grades of the three tests will be averaged and the course grade format is 87 ≤ A < 100, 74 ≤ B < 87, 61 ≤ C < 74, 49 ≤ D < 61, F < 49. Extra point questions may be given on a test but will not be given on the Makeup. Your test grades and overall course grade can be viewed using Blackboard.


Please sign the roll at the front desk at the beginning of each class. Attendance is not used in the grade computation but is taken to comply with federal regulations.


For office hours, email me at rstoesse@uno.edu or contact me before or after class to set up an appointment. Otherwise, look for me in the Geochemistry Lab (GP 1059) or in my office (GP 1034) on class days in the afternoon.


Lecture and Test Schedule - Note the test dates, together with the chapters covered on each test, are fixed but the date that a chapter is covered may differ from that below. If the lecture material for a test is covered before the test date, a review will be held on the last class day before a test.
