* List the
four major sizes of sediments in order of descending grain
size.
* Tell what
type of rock each type of sediment would form, if
lithified.
* List three major
types of glacial deposits, and describe
what characterizes those deposits and how they form.
Topographic maps
* Use a
topographic map to investigate and describe the topography
of an area.
* Use a
topographic map to determine what direction a stream flows.
* Use a
topographic map to tell what direction is downhill from a given
point.
* Use a
topographic map to construct a topographic profile.
Mathematical skills
* Give and use the geometric
formulas for area of a rectangle,
triangle,
and circle.
* Give and use
the geometric formulas for the volume of a rectangular
solid and a cylinder.
* Given a
simple algebraic formula containing several variables,
rearrange the formula to solve for each variable. (For
example, if 2y = 3x + 5, rearrange the formula to
solve for x, and then rearrange it to solve for y.)
* Use a
scientific calculator to find the sine, cosine, and tangent
of an angle.
* Use inverse
trigonometric functions on a scientific calculator.
* Write a
number both in scientific notation and in normal format.
* Raise a
number to an exponential power.
