The homework for the week is not the typical homework for this class. Students weren't given an official due date until all material had been taught. We are currently doing metric conversions. They have a practice sheet with 26 problems due on Monday.  Note- Please make sure #4 has been corrected to 4g (grams) rather than gm. I will attach the assignment under class documents.

Weekly Homework will consists of Frayer models and a few questions for understanding.  Frayer models are completed in the following format:   *Definition *Key Word (from definition, something that "sticks out") *Example (What does the definition make you think of? Draw or write it) *Non-example (What is opposite of this?) This can be done using a T chart with 4 corners, or just listing the four parts and separating them with bullets. Fissure Folding Faulting Earthquake Volcano Compression Tension Shearing Isostasy Isostatic adjustment Questions: Suppose glaciers were to cover much of the earth's surface again, what would you expect to happen to the parts of the continents with the added weight of the ice? Explain the role of technology in the progression from the hypothesis of continental drift to the theory of plate tectonics.
