MasteringGeology Is A Required Part Of This Course

A number of online exercises (homework, study modules, quizzes) are scheduled for you to complete in MasteringGeology accessed through the Canvas learning management system (LMS). All of them are graded in some way, and all have some sort of due date that is posted on the calendar you can access via MasteringGeology. Except for valid University excuses with written documentation (e.g., illness, bereavement, athletic, performance), there will be no re-setting of the online assignment deadlines to accommodate people who missed them this semester. If you miss the due date, you will not be able to make-up the exercises for credit.

To register for MasteringGeology, read and follow the directions provided on the PDF document http://croninprojects.org/Vince/Course/PhysGeol/Register-4-MasteringGeology-instructions.pdf

Final Exam Schedule For This Course

Sadly, there will be no final exam in this course because Dr. Cronin needs to be in Washington DC along with about 30,000 of his closest nerdy friends for the American Geophysical Union meeting on the day Baylor scheduled our final. Oh well.

Quizzes and exams for this course will not be administered through OALA. Separate accommodations will be made available to students who require additional time, etc.
