Lab #4 Document Corrected

Earth science students,

There was an issue with the lab #4 document and it has since been fixed. Thank you for calling it to my attention. While this assignment will have its due date extended, it is best if you complete it for Monday. It should not take more than 20 minutes to complete. Remember to use the reference table for the equations on gradient!

See you all tomorrow,

Mr. Paccione

Missing Labs

Earth science students,

All of you need to check your jupiter grades account for either missing or unacceptable laboratory reports.

I have posted all of the labs (and will continue to do so throughout the year) as a ‘page’ on the website. Check it out.

ALL MISSING LABS ARE DUE ON MONDAY THE LATEST.

- Mr. Paccione

Earth science students,

Here is your homework for tonight. It may or may not be collected, so make sure it is done either way.

822- 14. Introduction to Metamorphic Rocks (Paccione)

825/828- 13. Features on Sedimentary Rocks (Paccione)
