There are three logs. The first is fairly simple and they get harder. I am willing to negotiate price on each or all as a whole.
3. Internet Research: Perform a critical review of five (5) different web sites related to different topics within the field of environmental geology. Each review will consist of a description of the benefits of the web site, what type of information it contains, and how it can be used by a student in an environmental geology course. For each web site, the following information must be provided using no more than 75 words for each site. (The previous paragraph with title contains exactly 75 words). Address: An accurate URL for the site. Make sure it works! Description: Write a description of the contents of the site including an overall categorization. That is, is it related primarily to earthquakes, water issues, etc. Answer the question “what type of information will a visitor find there?” Usefulness: Describe how the site can be utilized by other environmental geology students (understanding a process, useful research tool, etc). Grade: Assign an overall grade for the site using an A to F scale. 4. Misconception Log: Finding and dismantling misconceptions is an important part of science and critical thinking. How do you know what you know? You will find and evaluate five (5) misconceptions you have (or had) about Earth processes. For each misconception, you will address the following: Misconception Statement: A statement that clearly describes what your misconception entailed. Rationale: Discuss how that misconception came to be. What evidence was used to help construct or reinforce that misconception? Correction: Discuss how you discovered that this was a misconception, and what evidence was used to convince you that you were incorrect in your understanding of that process or principle. Current Understanding: Describe your current understanding based on the evidence you now have. What questions do you still have about this process? Are you still evaluating the evidence? Are you fully convinced you’re correct in your understanding? What evidence would cause you to change your mind again? An example misconception is provided below to help guide you. 5. Trash Log: Over a period of one week, you are to log the contents of all of the solid waste you generate. Do this as part of Project One! The outline below lists what is required. Record all of the trash you generate during a one week period, but exclude sewage. Categorize your trash into the following categories, at a minimum: Recyclable (plastic, glass, metal) Compostable (wood, paper) Food waste (meat, vegetable) Electronics (computers, monitors, batteries) Other (materials that don’t fit neatly into the other categories) The categories are based on where they COULD go, not necessarily where you actually dispose of them. Where they do go, and where they could go, will be part of your analysis at the end. You can record your data based on volume, weight, or percentage. Be sure to record all trash waste generated, not just that generated at home. You are only responsible for the waste you generate, not others that you live with. DO NOT carry your waste around, simply log it and then dispose of it (properly of course). You will turn in: – your data collection sheet(s) – a graph or series of graphs that illustrate your findings – an analysis of your findings, how much went to the best disposal option, any surprises? – a conclusion statement regarding your findings and any changes you might consider
