The development of a wiki website on chosen course material will engage students more deeply with the inter-disciplinary subjects covered in DE by challenging them to present the material to a wide audience through a web-based medium.
They will develop practical knowledge in web-page creation and design, while peer-evaluation of the other students’ contributions will involve critical appraisal of both the content of the web-pages and their teamwork.
Sedimentary Rocks - Is it true that scientific dating techniques used to. andor overlying igneous and metamorphic rocks, inter-layered volcanic ash deposits.
they find igneous or metamorphic rock imbedded in or around a sedimentary rock layer. -3 Relative dating exercises For each of the following five block diagrams (A-E), label with letters andor numbers each sedimentary rock layer, igneous rock.
times of appearance and disappearance of many kinds of organisms from the location of their fossils within the sedimentary rock layers..
If we drill a core form layers of rocks with paleomagnetism,.
The examiners’ reports for each question are made available to the students via the Chemistry web pages.
PART 1: Back to Basics PART 2: Problems with the Assumptions PART 3: Making Sense of the Patterns This three-part series will help you properly understand radiometric dating, the assumptions that lead to inaccurate dates, and the clues about what really happened in the past.
The Dynamic Earth module sets out to explain how the elements were created, show how the Earth gained its present structure, and to reveal the truly dynamic nature of our planet.The anonymous peer-evaluation results are provided to students within 2 weeks of their submission deadline.The staff feedback and mark for the wiki websites will be marked within a 4-week deadline.(ii) The practical (7 h) involving the study of rocks in hand specimens and by optical mineralogy, culminating in exercises tackling petrological problems.Site Visit (BJK/KEHP/RED/JETO): A day visit to examine geological exposures Assessment: One topic will be assessed through continuous assessment via production of a wiki website.
