By the end of today's class, you should be able to do the following:


Last time we came up with a list of characteristics that can be used to describe rocks.  Recall and review that list; make sure it is complete. 

New this time:

w Using the list of rock characteristics, describe three rocks found on the NEIU campus.

w Explain the meaning of the term density.

w Find the densities of the rock samples provided, using the triple-beam balances and other lab supplies.  

w Use our class wiki to collaborate and share information.  Sign up for one of the Geotectonics Research assignments, which are due on Tuesday next week.  Note:  You will not be able to add anything to the wiki until you have been authorized, and you can't be authorized until you have given Dr. Sanders your e-mail address!
