Abstract:

For most students, reading from a textbook provides only a framework of knowledge. The more comprehensive and perceptive grasp of a topic truly requires that one examines and answers thought-provoking questions and seeks solutions to meaningful problems. [The authors] goal in these studies is to provide such questions and pose such problems. [They] hope the exercises will help students understand how ancient conditions can be read from rocks and fossils, how geologic forces at the surface and within the planet can alter the environment and change world geography, and how events of the past can be placed within an integrated chronological sequence. The exercises are designed for students who may not intend to specialize in geology.-Pref.
