Daily Objectives #1 (January 13, 2009)
end of today's class, you should be able to do the following:
v Write the full names of at least two of your
v On the web, find the course
home page, outline of topics, course requirements, homework assignments, and
v Explain what
will be required of you in this course.
v Describe the
purpose and function of a rain barrel, and make quantitative calculations to
estimate how a rain barrel is involved in the water budget of a residential
property in Chicago. Information appears in
this PowerPoint presentation (5.2MB).
v Work in a team to complete today's
assignment, due by the beginning of next class: collect all the information you
need and make all the calculations required to answer questions on the slides with white backgrounds
(see the homework page for more info). You must complete this
assignment by Thursday's class and bring it to class; we will work with it in
class (it will not be handed in yet, so need not be in a finalized format).
It's been a long break; do
you remember everything you learned last semester? Maybe you haven't taken
an Earth Science course in quite awhile. Everyone comes to this course
with a different level of understanding and experience. To help bring us
all to a common level of understanding, in a group, review
"What you should
bring to this course".
