Final Course Grades
111 and 111L
Geology Extra Credit +10 points on your lecture exam.
- Collect a pint-size or larger Ziploc™ bag of sediment from
a beach, river, lake, or desert environment. Be sure your name is
written on the bag in permanent ink. Note that it is illegal to collect
from national parks and most state parks and recreation areas.
- Provide detailed information on where the sediment was collected.
a. 100 ft south of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida,
about 5 feet up on the beach from the ocean.
b. about ½ mile south of Exit 30 off of I-24 in Kentucky
from the middle of Sinking Creek.
- I’d prefer sand-size sediment but gravel- to silt-size is
also OK. NO clay-size muck. If you don’t know the difference
between gravel, sand, silt, and clay, check out the Sedimentary Rocks
and Processes notes.
- Do I get to choose which test the +10 pts are applied? No. If you
turn in the sediment between the start of classes now and the date
for Exam #2, you can designate which exam gets the points. But you
must designate how the points are "routed" prior to taking
Exam #2. If you turn in the sediment between Exam #2 and the date
for Exam #3, the points will be applied to Exam #3. And so on. The
points can not be applied to the comprehensive Final Exam or any lab
- The final day to turn in sediment for Exam #4 will be the day that
exam is given.
If you have questions, let me know.
